Asian Conference on Literature 2017

Art Center Kobe, Kobe, Japan

Thursday, March 30 - Sunday, April 2, 2017

Abstract Submission Deadline: January 15, 2017

Registration Deadline for Presenters: February 15, 2017


Conference Theme: “History, Story, Narrative”

Historians are far from the only interested party in writing history. In a sense it is an interest we all share – whether we are talking politics, region, family birthright, or even personal experience. We are both spectators to the process of history while being intimately situated within its impact and formations.


How, then, best to write it? Is it always the victor’s version? Have we not begun increasingly to write “history from below”, that lived by those who are not at the top of the power hierarchy? Are accounts of history always gender-inflected, hitherto at least men rather than women? Who gets to tell history if the issue is colonialism or class? How does geography, the power of place, intersect with history? What is the status of the personal story or narrative within the larger frame of events?

This conference addresses issues of writing history from literary and other discursive perspectives. That is to say: novels, plays, poems, autobiographies, memoirs, diaries, travel logs, and a variety of styles of essay. One thinks of Shakespeare’s history plays, Tolstoy’s War and Peace, Shi Nai’an’s The Water Margin, Balzac’s La Comédie Humaine. It also addresses oral history, the spoken account or witness, Hiroshima survivor to modern Syrian migrant.

Which also connects to the nexus of media and history. The great “historical” films continue to hold us, be it Eisenstein’s October: Ten Days That Shook the World (1925) or Gone with the Wind (1940). We live in an age of documentaries, whether film or TV. There is a view that we also inhabit “instant” history, the download to laptop, the app, the all-purpose mobile. How has this technology changed our perception, our lived experience, of history? What is the role of commemoration, parade, holiday, festival or statuary in the writing of history?

The different modes by which we see and understand history, flow and counter-flow, nevertheless come back to certain basics.

One asks whether we deceive ourselves in always asking for some grand narrative. Can there only be one narrator or is history by necessity a colloquium, contested ground? Is national history a myth? And history-writing itself: is it actually a form of fiction, an artifice which flatters to deceive? What, exactly, is a historical fact?

This conference, we hope, will address these perspectives and others which connect and arise.

The Asian Conference on Literature 2017 (LibrAsia2017) will be held alongside The Asian Conference on the Arts & Humanities 2017 (ACAH2017). Registration for either conference will allow attendees to attend sessions in the other.

Ways to Present

Oral Presentation (25 minutes)

This is the standard format for presentation and involves the presenter delivering their research to their audience, often accompanied by a PowerPoint slideshow. Oral Presentations are generally organised by stream into parallel sessions comprising three or four presentations.


Poster Presentation (90 minutes)

A poster presentation provides a relaxed presentation atmosphere in which the presenter uses a poster pinned to a poster board (1800mm high by 900mm wide) to illustrate their research. Presenters will often engage with interested participants on a one-to-one basis, which is great for networking, discussion and relationship building.


Virtual Presentation

Virtual presentations afford authors the opportunity to present their research to IAFOR’s far-reaching and international online audience, without time restrictions, distractions or the need to travel. Presenters are invited to create a video of their presentation which will be uploaded to the official IAFOR Vimeo channel, and will remain online indefinitely. This is a valuable and impactful way of presenting in its own right, but also an alternative means for those delegates who may be unable to travel to the conference due to financial or political restrictions. The same publishing opportunities apply to virtual presenters, with final papers being included in Conference Proceedings.


Following the conference, virtual presenters will be mailed a conference pack, including receipt of payment, certificate of participation and a printed copy of the Conference Programme.

The Vimeo channel will be referenced on all conference materials.

There is no limit to length or style but certain restrictions apply to files size and music selection. Guidelines and further information on creating the video will be sent following registration.

Please note that video presentations are to be created by the author. IAFOR does not permit live video conferencing.

We do not allow presentations by video-conferencing but presenters have the opportunity to submit a video of their presentation, which will be placed on the official Vimeo channel. Information on how to do this will be sent following registration.

Workshop Presentation (60 to 90 minutes)

A workshop is a brief, intensive course, lasting 60 to 90 minutes, which is led by an experienced practitioner, usually with a Ph.D. It facilitates group interaction and the exchange of information amongst a smaller number of participants than is usual at a plenary session.

Often a workshop involves problem solving, skills training, or the dissemination of new content or disciplinary approaches. Conference workshops are typically more instructional and interactive in nature than oral presentations and involve participants working with the workshop leader on a particular topical issue.


Symposium Presentation (90 minutes)

Symposia sessions are conceived and organized by individuals who recruit speakers to present papers or participate in panel discussions organized around a special topic. A symposium is a 90-minute session. A symposium presentation includes:

An introduction

 3 or 4 oral presentations based on submitted abstracts

A discussion

As the organiser of a proposed panel, submit a proposal for the symposium through the online system.

Symposiums presenters can either submit a joint paper or separate papers to the conference proceedings.

We look forward to meeting you in Kobe, Japan!

3rd Conference on Translation in Transition

 {13-14 JULY-2017}

Department of Translation, Interpreting and Communication of Ghent University,Belgium.


After successful editions in Copenhagen in 2014 and Germersheim in 2015, we are pleased to announce that the third Translation in Transition Conference will be held on July 13-14, 2017 at the department of Translation, Interpreting and Communication of Ghent University (Belgium).

The ongoing digitalisation of our world has caused translation to transition from a mostly manual task to a semi- or even fully automated task. Translation research has gone through a comparable transition, with advanced research methods and statistics allowing researchers to study the translation process and product more thoroughly than ever, thereby bridging the gap between related fields as corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, psycholinguistics and bilingualism studies. Within this rapidly evolving field, the traditional dividing line between translation as written text production and interpreting as oral text production has been blurred and there are now numerous areas of research and methodological frameworks that are common to both Translation and Interpreting Studies (TIS). For instance, Translation Studies in recent years has taken an interest in the cognitive processes underlying translation, a field that was previously mainly occupied by interpreting scholars. On the other hand, Interpreting Studies, inspired by developments in translation research, has recently undergone an empirical turn with the compilation of interpreting corpora and a renewed focus on interpreting as a product. Despite these obvious advances in the field, many empirical and theoretical challenges remain: how, for instance, do written translation and interpreting relate to each other, taken both from a product and a process point of view? What are similarities and differences between translation and interpreting, what do these reveal about the nature of these translation modes and how do they inform translation theories? Which theories are available to interpret empirical findings consistently and coherently? How would an empirical theory of translation and interpreting look like? And what about other translation modes, such as audiovisual translation and localisation: how do these relate empirically to written translation and interpreting? Finally, how do technological advances (such as CAT or post-editing) shape the translational product and process? By acknowledging the recent changes in both translation and interpreting research, TT3 takes a step to overcome these challenges.
TT3 wants to offer a forum to researchers involved with the theory-informed empirical study of translation, interpreting and hybrid forms (audio-visual translation, live-subtitling, sight translation, sign language interpreting...). We are particularly interested to hear how methods and technologies that are typically associated with product research (corpus-based methods, statistical data analysis) or process research (EEG, keystroke logging, eye-tracking) can be successfully combined in both translation and interpreting research. We welcome papers from the following fields of research:

  • Translation and interpreting process research
  • Corpus-based translation and interpreting research
  • Multivariate statistical analysis of translational and interpreting data
  • Corpus- and process-based research of audio-visual translation, sign language interpreting etc.
  • Reading, writing and post-editing processes in translation and interpreting
  • Translation and interpreting cognition
  • Speech recognition and translation
  • Intelligent machine translation
Important dates:
  • 10.11.2016: First CFP
  • 07.02.2017: Deadline for submissions
  • 01.04.2017:  Registration opens
  • 13-14.07.2017:  Symposium

Abstract Information
You can submit your abstract until 7 February 2017 via the Easychair platform. There, you can either copy-paste your abstract in the Abstracts field or you can choose to upload your abstract in PDF format. If you choose to do the latter, please use our MS Word template and convert it into PDF format for uploading. In addition, you should write "see uploaded pdf file" in the Abstracts field since it is a mandatory field.

Manly Matters

Representations of Maleness in South Asian Popular Visual Practice


Call for Papers

Tasveerghar: A Digital Network of South Asian Popular Visual Culture (www.tasveerghar.net) is proud to launch our new project titled “Manly Matters: Iconographies of the Masculine in South Asian Visual Culture.”

We invite proposals from scholars and researchers who wish to write a 5000-word “image essay” on a topic connected with this theme. We provide below our own vision statement but are also open to other ideas and topics. Preference will be given in the selection of the final essays to those that pertain especially to the under-represented regions of South Asia in the study of visual culture (Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka), and to early career scholars and researchers. These image essays will be featured on the website for Tasveer Ghar, and our in-house designer Yousuf Saeed will work with each author to create the final product.

The deadline for submission of a 250-word abstract is January 15, 2017. We also request a sample portfolio of 5-10 images, and a timeline for submission. Authors of successful proposals will receive an honorarium of USD $250 (to be paid on the submission of the completed image essay), and access to Tasveerghar’s database of digitized images from the Priya Paul Collection, New Delhi.

For samples of image essays, please visit our website at www.tasveerghar.net. Typically an online visual essay on Tasveer Ghar is spread over several pages with thumbnails of images at appropriate places/paragraphs. By clicking on thumbnails you can visit the larger-sized pictures with detailed captions that are arranged in the accompanying “image gallery.” Thus, your final essay could be divided into sections or pages for web design purposes. We would ideally need thick captions about each image, besides information about its source/credit. We expect each contributor to secure permission for the use of images for this project/publication. Tasveer Ghar shall not be responsible for any copyright violation.


Our Vision Statement:

Manly Matters seeks to move the focus of pictorial analysis to representations of maleness—both spectacular and mundane—as it proliferates in South Asian popular visual practice, especially in printed images produced for the mass market. At first blush, it may seem regressive to attend to men, given that they have been the very stuff of our scholarship for many decades as feminist critiques have so valuably demonstrated. It is however the case that in the scholarship on South Asian visual culture over the past two decades, with the possible exception of cinema studies, little or no attention has been paid to masculinity as problematic or presence, the category of “gender” frequently being read entirely as “female” and as “woman.”1 Consequently, the male qua male has been taken as a given, glossed over as gendered subject, and hence paradoxically rendered invisible, even while being everywhere and across various media. There is indeed “a curious timidity when it comes to male images” that is widespread in the study of South Asian visual culture.2 As Todd Reeser writes in a recent assessment of the state of masculinity studies more generally, “One of the recurring features of masculinity—as opposed to femininity—is that men go to great pain to hide it and, by extension to hide the way that it functions and operates. Hiding can allow masculinity to function without challenge or question.”3 This project pushes back against such attempts at “hiding.” Overcoming our customary “timidity,” we call to place men on full display and at the center of our visual analysis, as we consider a range of activities with which men are typically associated—like farming or soldiering— but also those that might surprise us and that challenge our normative assumptions, such as picnicking or child-rearing. In so doing, we denaturalize assumptions about how men display themselves and are displayed in pictorial regimes, and destabilize prevailing stereotypes about manliness and masculinity more generally. We also push back against an easy, even universal, binary which associates the man with mind and the woman with her body, especially so in studies of visual culture and practices of the region. In contrast, we seek to bring the male body back in as a primary object of pictorial concern, and our visual attention.


There is no single—or singular—way in which men “look” in modern South Asia. All the same, we are keen to consider if certain somatic markers—such as the moustache, to invoke one instance—or activities or livelihoods are paradigmatically distinctive within the range of masculinities that circulate, including the feminized masculine, in the South Asian modern. Masculinity is intuitively associated with muscular power and virile strength, but are there are also contexts in which men appear vulnerable and fragile? Beauty has generally been associated with the female figure, but have artists across the region also attempted to produce the beautiful male form, and if so, what is the male beau ideal and how does it change over time and across ideologies? Not least, we ask which sectors of society are invested in producing a particular masculine ideal, and who is looking at men as they put themselves on display or are displayed, sartorially and somatically? How indeed have men engaged with images about themselves, as Kajri Jain asks to consider?4

Even while we wish to attend to a range of masculine types from the spiritual and the religious to the sportsman and the soldier, the farmer and the “five year plan hero,”5 to name the obvious, a particular concern of the project is with the male political leader, especially men widely regarded as the founding father of the nation, be they Gandhi or Nehru of India, Iqbal and Jinnah in Pakistan, or Mujibur Rahman of Bangladesh. Rivaling father figures such as Ambedkar and Prabhakaran are also of interest. How have these flesh-and-blood men been transformed through the work of images and image-events into globally recognizable “bio-icons”? We borrow the concept of bio-icon from literary theorist Bishnupriya Ghosh for whom bio-icons are lives that have become the focus of visual and media saturation as social demands are placed on them. Ghosh’s analysis takes on female “bio-icons” such as Phoolan Devi, Mother Teresa, and Arundhati Roy.6 We wish to extend her analysis to iconic male bodies in order to demonstrate that the visual appearance and look of these men is critical to both nation building as well as their exercise of power and the cultivation of charisma. In pivoting thus from text to image, from words to pictures, how do things and matters hitherto hidden become visible and apparent? This too is one of our critical questions.

About us:

The project will be carried out under the joint leadership of Christiane Brosius, Sumathi Ramaswamy, and Yousuf Saeed, the co-founders and coordinators of Tasveer Ghar. It is funded by the Anneliese Maier Research Award granted in 2016 to Sumathi Ramaswamy by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Germany.

"First of all I would like to take this opportunity to thank the officers and organizers of this event. I believe that conferences such as this are very timely and significant because this will be instrumental in addressing one of the grayest problems of our universities and colleges; as mentioned by local and international accreditors, among the 3 main functions of academic institutions the area of research is the weakest. I’m confident that your association is a very potent force to improve the research component of university. I look forward to joining your organization in the near future. More power, and keep up the good work."
"The international conference was very successful. Every conference the participants and presenters are increasing. Everyone learned a lot from the presentations. I hope I could be part or member of your organization. Thank you and more power."
