>CALL FOR PAPERS
>
>Forum on Contemporary Theory
>Seventh International Conference
>Andhra University, Visakhapatnam  (India)
>13-16 December 2004
>
>Topic: "Dialogics of Cultural Encounters"
>
>The theme of the conference, "Dialogics of Cultural Encounters," is
>part of the ongoing debate of the Forum on the question of identity,
>which has acquired greater urgency and meaning today in the context
>of the recent events in Afghanistan and Iraq and the threat of
>international terrorism to the civilized world. The theme of the
>2004 conference extends the scope of the debate on modernity,
>initiated at the Jaipur conference in 2003, to encompass the larger
>dimension of the question involving dialogue between cultures,
>between civilizations, between religious and political ideologies,
>and between the present and the past.  The idea of modernity, which
>was disseminated throughout the world under colonial dispensation,
>was both a spatial mode of intervention across cultures and a
>reflection on the nature of residual temporality of the past through
>the present. Through migration and displacement of people, through
>translations of works, through study of comparative literary pe!
>rspectives and influences, and through expansion of regimes of
>control under colonialism and forms of globalization the world
>continues to be shaken and invigorated by spatial dynamics of
>cultural exchange. Temporal markers of disjunction and conjunction
>of cultural forces would include modernity's invocation of the past
>and its continued reworking of tradition through both conflicting
>and collaborative dialogues. The influx of modernity into the
>life-world of the countries influenced by the West could be seen as
>both a disturbing phenomenon for traditional cultures as well as a
>facilitation for a fruitful exchange of ideas for a healthy
>cross-fertilization of shared perspectives. Although some cynics
>have predicted a clash of civilizations and battles over ideological
>differences, there seems to have continued a subtle dialogue between
>systems of thought apparently opposed by their epistemic
>differences. The emergence of poststructuralist thinking and its
>profound impact on!
>  contemporary thought have made us aware that the old-fashion!
>ed dichot
>re-conceptualizing the nature of the human world; there is a need
>for a fresh look from the vantage point of the new century and new
>millennium, which is expected to offer us a vision of a new future.
>By using the term "dialogics" from Mikhail Bakhtin and implying its
>opposition to the Marxist term "dialectics" we have tried to
>understand the more complex but valuable interplay of ideas across
>cultures and time as a way of making sense of the intricate process
>of encounters between cultures, despite the more obvious signs of
>many forms of conflicts resulting in violent political and
>ideological clashes. The conference will try to examine through
>close studies of cultural forms as well as the nature of
>philosophical debates through history how there has been a
>persistence of dialogical impulses, even when conflicts among
>cultures have been more open and bloody.
>
>Papers, mostly on conceptual nature, supported by textual examples,
>are welcome.  Mere textual analysis without any broad philosophical
>framework will not be entertained.
>
>Special Session:  In keeping with the earlier convention, a special
>panel on a regional text will be one of the highlights of the
>conference. This year's choice for the panel is the nineteenth
>century Telugu play  Kanyasulkam (1897) by Gurajada Venkata Appa
>Rao, translated into English by C. Vijayasree and T. Vijaya Kumar,
>and published in 2002 by The Book Review Literary Trust (239 Vasant
>Enclave, New Delhi 110057).  The play gives a clear picture of
>Telugu society in the late nineteenth century, between the collapse
>of an old order and the uncertain emergence of a new one. Hailed as
>the first "modern" text in Telugu, it interestingly is one of the
>earliest to have critiqued the colonial models of modernity.  It
>also anticipates many postmodernist techniques through its
>inter-textual links with past authors and texts, both Indian and
>Western, and negotiates playfully between the past and the present
>through a meaningful dialogue with historical periods as a way of
>understan!
>ding how temporal dislocations and changes have also vestiges of continuity.
>
>Submission deadline: 500-word abstracts or proposals are due by
>August 1, 2004.
>
>Complete papers should be limited to 12 pages (approximately 20
>minutes reading time).  A longer version may be submitted for
>possible publication in the Journal of Contemporary Thought, brought
>out by the Forum, or in the conference volume.  The completed paper
>should reach the Convener of the Forum by October 30.
>
>Registration deadline: September 5, 2004.  All participants need to
>be pre-registered.
