CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR A PROPOSED EDITED COLLECTION. We are seeking submissions for a collection of essays titled Teaching with Tension: Race, Resistance, and Reality in the Classroom. This edited volume addresses the extent to which attitudes about race, impacted by our current political environment, have produced pedagogical challenges for professors in the humanities who teach subjects that involve race. For some Americans, including many of the students we teach in colleges and universities across the country, President Barack Obama's administration signaled an end to the age of race-based preferential treatment and discrimination.

New Feminist Publication: RAG QUEEN PERIODICAL-Call for prose and poetry

updated: 
Thursday, October 29, 2015 - 7:11pm
Rag Queen Periodical

We are preparing to launch a brand new postmodern omnifem publication: Rag Queen Periodical. We are seeking submissions in POETRY AND PROSE.

Écriture féminine. This term is what we had in mind when establishing Rag Queen. We want to feature writing about the embodiment of womanhood, regardless of how that's manifested in your life.

We are interested in deviating from neoliberal, corporate feminism and instead focusing on subverting the erasure of female agency and identity. Nuance, intersectionality, and evocative storytelling are our signposts.

Drawing from varied womynfluences, we set sail on a spring tide into, as Betty Friedan would say, "Woman: The Fourth Dimension."
