Call for Submissions: "Feminism and Academia Today: A Graduate Student Forum”

Journal of Feminist Scholarship

 

In its inaugural issue in Fall 2011, the Journal of Feminist Scholarship asked feminist scholars and activists to share their ideas about feminism and feminist scholarship today. Responses from Amrita Basu, Rachel Blau DuPlessis, Agnieszka Graff, and more composed a critical forum assessing the state of the field and pushing it into new directions. Now, eight years later, we ask the same question – this time, to graduate students engaging with feminist studies across all disciplines. What is the state of feminist scholarship today?

ESSAY: CRITICAL RECEPTION OF STEINBECK’S THE PEARL

Seeking chapter submission for a Critical Insights volume on John Steinbeck’s The Pearl under contract with Salem/Grey House Publishers. Known for its simplicity and universal themes of greed, power, and economic oppression, The Pearl was originally published in installments in Women’s Home Companion (1945) with its original title, “The Pearl of the World.”  The Pearl is universally appreciated for its accessibility, classroom applications, and suitability to theoretical approaches. With current trends and political climate considered, it is time to revisit this classic text for a contemporary audience.

Shapes of Futures

  

What is realised in my history is not the past definite of what was, since it is no more, or even the present perfect of what has been in what I am, but the future anterior of what I shall have been for what I am in the process of becoming.

Jacques Lacan

The past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities.

Throughout its long history, crime writing has inspired and been inspired by other genres such as the gothic, sensation fiction, horror, romance, film noir, science fiction, and true crime. This theme issue of Clues, guest edited by Maurizio Ascari, seeks to explore the richness of these generic contact zones and the acts of cross-pollination they engendered, ultimately contributing to the overall development of this galaxy of literary forms. Articles for this issue might address questions such as the following:

Interrogating Men: Toxic Masculinity in the Contemporary Moment

updated: 
Wednesday, April 10, 2019 - 11:21am
Jon Mitchell / University of East Anglia UK
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 31, 2019

“Toxic masculinity” is a relatively new buzz phrase to capture, in the contemporary moment, problematics of male behavior and masculinist beliefs. However, the term needs interrogating if we are to fully understand its implications. What exactly is toxic masculinity? What agenda(s) does the term serve? What makes it toxic, and to whom is it toxic? Indeed, is toxic masculinity itself really a thing, or is it simply a new slogan for behaviours and beliefs that have always been a part of (too) many expressions of masculinity? What is the significance of this phrase to the study of masculinity?
