  • Islands in the Air: Travelling by Plane in Anglophone Caribbean Literature
    • Abstract: A wall at the Aéroport Martinique Aimé Césaire, named after the legendary poet in 2007, displays the following lines from his Cahier d'un retour au pays natal: "Ma bouche sera la bouche des malheurs qui n'ont point de bouche, ma voix, la liberté de celles qui s'affaissent au cachot du désespoir" ("My mouth shall be the mouth of those calamities that have no mouth, my voice the freedom of those who break down in the solitary confinement of despair"; "At Martinique's"; Eshelman and Smith 45). Can such a voice of resistance be heard in an airport setting' This article, which examines the literary representation of the Caribbean migrant figure in airports and airplanes, takes this question as its starting point. ...

  • Sharing Worlds through Words: Minor Cosmopolitics in Ruth Ozeki's A Tale
           for the Time Being
    • Abstract: Ruth Ozeki's novels engage with contemporary issues and events. Her first two novels are issue-driven: My Year of Meats (1998) responds to the use of hormones in the United States meat industry and All Over Creation (2003) delves into genetic modification in agriculture. Her third novel, A Tale for the Time Being (2013), though described by Ozeki as "philosophical" and enacting "a performance of certain aspects of Zen philosophy" (Stanford Humanities Center; The Wheeler Centre), does not withdraw from the dialectics between the actual and the fictional.1 In addition to the autobiographical elements (i.e., Ozeki wrote herself and her experiences as a novelist into one of the main characters, Ruth), Tale encompasses ...

  • Garden-Variety Holiness: Bessie Head's "reverence for ordinary people" in
           A Question of Power
    • Abstract: From among the overwhelming number of legislative actions that incrementally built the Union of South Africa into an apartheid state, several have bearing on the life of Bessie Head and her third novel, A Question of Power (1974). Enacted in February 1937, the Aliens Act was put into place just before Head was born on 6 July 1937. Although the bill aimed to restrict the number of Jewish immigrants entering South Africa as a result of oppression in Nazi Germany, the Aliens Act codified Afrikaner ideas of racial purity and privilege even as it expressed these same ideas through the concept of citizenship (Bunting 59–60). This category of citizenship formed the raw material for the state's racist construction and ... Read More

  • Revealing Fictions: Neo-liberalism, Domestic Servants, and Thrity
           Umrigar's The Space Between Us
    • Abstract: In a passage at the heart of her novel The Space Between Us (2005), diasporic Indian writer Thrity Umrigar describes the changes wrought on the everyday lives of urban Indians as a result of economic liberalization. Set in contemporary Mumbai and written for an audience of educated Indians and non-Indians, the novel investigates increasing social divisions through the lens of an institution defined by economic inequality: domestic servitude. The story is largely told from the perspective of Bhima, the longtime housekeeper of a middle-class Parsi widow named Sera. At the novel's start, Bhima's orphaned granddaughter Maya, the first in the family to get a proper education, has fallen pregnant and dropped out of ... Read More

  • The Narrative Mood of Jean Rhys' Quartet

But what are the "sadism" and "masochism" of which he speaks' Are they literary genres' Practices of living sadists and masochists' Floating formations of desire'It was astonishing how significant, coherent and understandable it all became after a glass of wine on an empty stomach. . . . The Place Blanche, Paris, Life itself. One realized all sorts of things.

  • Mapping the Margins: An Interview with Meena Kandasamy: Conducted at
           Sacred Heart College in Kochi, India on 12 November 2015
    • Abstract: Meena Kandasamy is an Indian poet, translator, fiction writer, and Dalit activist based in Chennai, India. Unlike many of her contemporaries such as Preeti Shenoy, Kiran Manral, and Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, her oeuvre is a response to issues related to caste politics, feminism, and gender violence that plague contemporary India. As the first Indian woman writer to champion the cause of Dalit individuals and their communities in an upper-caste majoritarian India, Kandasamy is an outspoken critic of the establishment and a spokesperson for the "others" and underprivileged in her society. She is known for her piercing wit, radical quips, and satirical stabs. Her two collections of verse, Touch (2006) and Ms. ... Read More

  • A Companion to Australian Aboriginal Literature ed. by Belinda Wheeler
           (review)
    • Abstract: In the last two decades, several notable anthologies and important critical studies of Aboriginal literature have been published. Yet A Companion to Australian Aboriginal Literature, the collection of essays edited by Belinda Wheeler, is the first book to offer a comprehensive study of what Wheeler's introduction presents as a still emerging canon. A Companion to Australian Aboriginal Literature acknowledges that accessibility to material produced by Aboriginal authors remains, for historical reasons of social and cultural marginalisation, limited. It is important to note that "literature" in the context of the collection's title must not be understood conventionally, in the sense of written works of art, but in a ... Read More

  • Hanif Kureishi ed. by Susan Alice Fischer (review)
    • Abstract: The British Asian writer Hanif Kureishi is often regarded as a trailblazing figure. For over three decades, he has produced plays, screenplays, short fiction, novels, and essays, frequently breaking taboos and exploring under-represented and marginalized people within British society. Several studies on Kureishi focus on his ambitious response to contemporary realities and his impact on British culture. Commentators have focused particularly on his early, groundbreaking cinematic collaborations—the Stephen Frears directed films, My Beautiful Laundrette (1985) and Sammy and Rosie Get Laid (1987)—and his critically acclaimed debut novel, The Buddha of Suburbia (1990).A number of the contributors to Hanif Kureishi ...

  • Africa's Narrative Geographies: Charting the Intersection of Geocriticism
           and Postcolonial Studies by Dustin Crowley (review)
    • Abstract: Dustin Crowley's Africa's Narrative Geographies: Charting the Intersection of Geocriticism and Postcolonial Studies is the seventh title in the pathbreaking series on geocriticism and spatial literary studies published by Palgrave Macmillan and edited by Robert T. Tally Jr. Crowley's contribution revisits the expansive study in postcolonial literature of geographies of imperialism and liberation. He does so in ways that will be recognizable to many experts in the field but also includes new insights and a welcome challenge to any tendency to conceptual complacency within the poststructural thrust of spatial studies in literature.Crowley positions his book against the heavy influence of "postmodernist and ...

  • Literary Land Claims: The "Indian Land Question" from Pontiac's War to
           Attawapiskat by Margery Fee (review)
    • Abstract: At the open of Literary Land Claim: The "Indian Land Question" from Pontiac's War to Attawapiskat, Margery Fee asks "[H]ow does literature claim land'" (1) and postulates that a national literary narrative constitutes Canadian nationalism. Land is claimed, she writes, through historical narratives that function as evidence for the existence of a nation and formulations of national character; moreover, such land is settled through labour—including the labour of storytelling. In framing her argument, Fee draws on thinkers ranging from Northrop Frye and John Locke to Margaret Atwood and Thomas King. She reads the mythos of terra nullius1 as making space for "heroic explorers . . . [to] claim land imaginatively rather ... Read More
