"Wait, I'm not allowed in the feminist club?"

Wednesday, December 16, 2015 - 1:50pm
Rag Queen Periodical

Call for submissions:
"Wait, I'm not allowed in the feminist club?"
Many women feel completely left out of the feminist movement. Intersectional feminism hopes to tackle this very issue.
We are interested in narratives which portray the feelings of separation or marginalization from feminism due to lack of representation within the feminist movement.
Some topics to consider:
• Ableism
• "Rich, white feminism"
• Postcolonialism
• Transfeminism

Who Can Submit:
You can, that's who! We accept poetry, non-fiction prose, and fiction prose from all genders and sexes as long as they advocate for women.

EXTENDED DEADLINE 15 JANUARY The Poetics of Place: Performing Selves In and Beyond Cities

Wednesday, December 16, 2015 - 11:19am
13th Annual Université de Montréal English Graduate Conference

In The Production of Space, Henri Lefebvre describes the city as "a production and reproduction of human beings by human beings." This conference aims to explore the poetics of (non)urban spaces and the city as a catalyst for self-making and -unmaking in the various localized manifestations of the self in literature and art. We envision metropolitan, (post)industrial, rural, etc. spaces as socially inflected images with the performative self at the core of their becoming.

Beyond the "Status" Question: New Paths to Self-Determination for the Peoples of Puerto Rico

Tuesday, December 15, 2015 - 8:50am
Universidad de Puerto Rico/Northeastern University

Summary: Debates on self-determination and sovereignty for the peoples of Puerto Rico have been framed by formulae developed during the Spanish colonial period to support claims for full integration into the kingdom, limited autonomy, and independence. Early during the US colonial regime these positions were hastily translated and have since fossilized along the lines of what has come to be known as the "Status Issue".
