2021 Rustgi Undergraduate Conference on South Asia: Isolation and its Discontents February 26th and 27th, 2021 University at Buffalo, SUNY We present the third annual Rustgi Undergraduate Conference on South Asia by reflecting upon the rich history of South Asia and its connection to present-day conditions. We invite papers on the theme of โ€œIsolation,โ€ where isolation may be interpreted broadly, whether in its social, political, or environmental sense. To a lot of us today, isolation on a global scale would seem like a novel phenomenon. But both in its metaphorical and literal manifestations, isolation has throughout history been a marker of something tempestuous and has provoked resistance. The conference will feature a keynote lecture from Aniruddha Dutta, Associate Professor in the departments of Gender, Womenโ€™s and Sexuality Studies and Asian and Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Iowa. Undergraduate participants from all disciplines, working on any topic relating to the region, are welcome to submit proposals. Please click http://bit.ly/rustgisubmissions2021 to submit proposals. Format The conference will be held online on Friday, February 26th, and Saturday, February 27th, 2021. Students presenters should plan for 15-minute presentations. Each panel will include 30 minutes for discussion. Deadline Proposals, including 250-word abstracts and the contact information of a faculty supervisor, must be submitted via the online submissions portal (http://bit.ly/rustgisubmissions2021) by January 1st, 2021. Inquiries Please contact [email protected] for more information about the conference. The third annual Rustgi Undergraduate Conference on South Asia is made possible by a generous gift from Dr. Vinod Rustgi and his family. #rustgiconference University at Buffalo Honors College American Institute of Indian Studies (AIIS) American Institute of Pakistan Studies American Institute for Sri Lankan Studies UB International Student Services UB Gender Institute University at Buffalo Department of English Department of History - University at Buffalo SUNY
Attention literary scholars interested in mad studies, disability studies, or in the work and life of Virginia Woolf: I wanted to share with anyone interested in Virginia Woolf and the subject of institutionalization that Maria Rovito and I are co-chairing a Woolf-focused panel at the upcoming Northeast Modern Language Association (2021) virtual conference. The title of the panel is "The Lunatic Upstairs: Virginia Woolf and the Ethics of Institutionalization." This is an excerpt from the CFP: "Virginia Woolfโ€™s work has critically engaged with the question of institutionalization and the confinement of Mad peoples, from the medical treatment of Septimus Warren Smith in Mrs. Dalloway (1925), to the question of madwomenโ€™s spaces and meaning-making in A Room of Oneโ€™s Own (1929), to Woolfโ€™s own institutionalization in Burley House in 1910. As Woolf writes in a letter to her sister, Vanessa Bell, โ€œHowever, what I meant to say is that I shall soon have to jump out of a window. The ugliness of the house is almost unbelievableโ€”having white, and mottled green and red. Then there is all the eating and drinking and being shut up in the dark.โ€ Indeed, as a figure of the madwoman within literature and culture, Woolfโ€™s ethics of institutionalization can be analyzed through a variety of critical modes, ranging from feminist and disability theory to q***r and crip studies. As madwomen throughout modern western history have been confined and silenced by the institution, new engagements in Woolf studies must question the nature of the asylum in Woolfโ€™s life and work. This panel seeks to theorize and question Woolfโ€™s ethics surrounding institutionalization and the asylum throughout her writing, including her fiction, essays, short stories, drama, and autobiography. This panel will explore how Virginia Woolfโ€™s work foregrounds an ethics of institutionalization for madwomen and Mad folx who are silenced by the asylum. What is the importance of reading the figure of the institution in Woolfโ€™s work? How did the asylum and her own encounters with forms of institutionalization and enforced treatment and care affect Woolfโ€™s life and creative output? Is it possible to create an ethics of institutionalization through the Woolf canon?" Please consider submitting an abstract for a paper, a performance, or a work of art relating to this subject.
