Kritika Kultura, the international refereed journal of language, literary,
and cultural studies of the Department of English, Ateneo de Manila
University, is inviting early career researchers to submit manuscripts for
a three-day criticism workshop on the theme of “Philippine Literature and
Cultural Studies in the Age of Transnationalism and Diaspora.” The
criticism workshop, which will be held in Ateneo de Manila University from
May 25 to 28, 2016, is organized in collaboration with Ateneo Institute for
Literary Arts and Practices (AILAP).

The KK criticism workshop will be part of the 14th Ateneo National Writers
Workshop (ANWW); the partnership between KK and AILAP aims to foster
dialogue and collaboration between practitioners of creative and critical
writing. The workshop will train and prepare five early career researchers
for the rigor and demand of scholarly writing and practice—principles which
inform theoretical and methodological orientations, literary and cultural
studies approaches which address contemporary realities—through critiques
and assessment of their work. Furthermore, ANWW 14 encourages applications
from those affiliated with community or university organisations (literary
or non-literary), as part of the workshop’s theme this year is literature
as a way of engaging sectors and communities.

The workshop panel will be composed of top scholars and critics from
Philippine universities. Throughout the three days of the workshop, fellows
are expected to deliver short presentations based on their research, and
participate in the workshop with co-fellows and panelists. Revised versions
of the manuscripts may be considered for publication in Kritika Kultura.

Applicants should submit papers on Philippine literary and cultural
studies, particularly in relation to the region, nation, and the globe;
applicants are encouraged to explore issues that emerge from the
engagements between the Filipino diasporic communities—within and outside
the Philippines—and the culture and politics of the nation-states. Papers
may focus on—but are not limited to—the following:

1. The politics of location and identity

2. Strategies of negotiation and reterritorialization of diasporic space,
like narrative-making and definitional ceremonies

3. Intersections within the global economy, transnational circuiting of
goods, services, technologies*, *and market in diasporic communities

4. Reproduction of diasporic identity vis-à-vis the demands and pressures
of the new host country and the originary country

5. The currency of roots, origin, and authenticity for diasporic communities

6. How categories of identification—gender, class, race, and
ethnicity—constitute and regulate immigrants

7. Emergence of new diasporic languages and cultural forms

8. The geopolitics and cultural forms of internal migration

9. The geopolitics of the rise of global refugees

10. The discourse of tropology and diaspora

11. The discourse of archipelagic and other island forms

12. The production, translation, and circulation of texts within and
outside the Philippines

13. The politics and ethics of citizenship in today’s transnational
circuiting and processes


Interested participants are requested to submit the following on or before
Apr. 1, 2016:
