CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT (HYDERABAD, INDIA, JANUARY 5-7, 2006)
For both the conferences, MELUS-India and MELOW, we are looking for papers that fall under the following heads:
•Theories that deal with Dialog between Disparate Groups
•Dialog Across Barriers: Race and / or EthnicityThe Gendered Voice
•Trans-cultural Dialog in Films, media or popular culture
•Relationships between texts or genres
•Power games in the creation, reception and dissemination of texts
•Literary concerns and strategies that cut across boundaries
•Texts that straddle multi-cultural spaces
The MELUS-India Conference (Jan 5-6, 2006) will explore these and related issues, taking up diverse genres – not literature alone but also cinema, theatre, media, and popular culture.
The MELOW 2006 Conference (Jan 6-7, 2006) will explore the same issues, focusing on India and her relationship to the world. How does the world see us, our writers and our literary traditions? How does our popular culture, our films, our folk traditions compare with those of other cultures? Where do we stand vis-à-vis our foreign counterparts?
Delegates should state clearly whether their abstracts are for MELUS-India (related to American Literature) or to MELOW (related to Indian literatures from a comparative perspective).
