[UPDATE] Call for Submissions: Craft & DIY Rhetorics

updated: 
Wednesday, October 15, 2014 - 11:45am
Harlot

Deadline extended: April 15, 2015

These days the word "craft" gets attached to a lot—from cocktails to crochet, 3D printing to upcycled t-shirts, handmade paper to handmade pickles. And this trend only appears to be growing as craft is closely connected to the DIY movement: a wide-ranging, ever-expanding, and sometimes controversial field of work and play.

Bodies of Bondage: Environments in Women's Neo-Captivity Narratives

updated: 
Wednesday, October 15, 2014 - 9:13am
Society for the Study of American Women Writers (SSAWW)

With the conference theme in mind, this panel will consider the liminal spaces and hybrid lives of women in neo-captivity narratives, a term that addresses the broad implications of the captivities about which women write in the 20th and 21st centuries. From early captivity narratives to sentimental novels of seduction and the slave narratives made popular around the Civil War to contemporary neo-slave narratives, women write and narrate stories of captivity that prominently feature their bodies and the various violences and bondages visited upon them, the manner in which they are pursued, controlled, and patrolled, and the possibility for redemption, bodily or otherwise.

Edited Collection: "I am not what I once was": Unbecoming Queer Narratives

updated: 
Monday, October 13, 2014 - 7:27pm
Dr. Paul Walker, Dr. Josh Adair

This essay collection will focus upon the intersection of personal narrative and conceptions of self constructed through the lens of queer theory. In order for us to wriggle free of the shackles forged by the modern construct of the individual imbued with an infallible facility for self-sovereignty and an impervious, fixed identity, we must first acknowledge the fluidity, illogicality, and unpredictability which characterize most of our lived experiences.

Black and Woman: Essays on Black Feminism in Contemporary Literature. November 30, 2014

updated: 
Monday, October 13, 2014 - 8:40am
Dr Blossom N. Fondo

When it was stated that blacks are not women, it did not signify that black women were lacking in some essence of womanhood. Rather, it was meant to indicate the ways in which feminism as practiced by white women failed to take cognizance of the different experiences of non-white women. Consequently, black women came up with their version of feminist theory that took into consideration their unique experiences as well as their problems as black and women. They that the preoccupations of white feminism were not universal and neither were their problems identical. They therefore imagined a different feminism for themselves that will fully address the reality of the black woman.

CFP: Mystery/Detective Fiction, Southwest PCA/ACA (11/1/14; 2/11-14, 2015)

updated: 
Sunday, October 12, 2014 - 5:30pm
Southwest Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association

As popular genres, mystery and detective fiction reflect a wide range of changes in society, including representations of detectives and other characters from an increasingly wide range of racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual identities, as well as from a growing range of geographical and urban/rural locations, so in keeping with the theme of this year's SWPACA conference ("Many Faces, Many Voices: Intersecting Borders in Popular and American Culture"), submissions are particularly invited that consider mystery and detective fiction in conjunction with the idea of a diversity of faces and voices in popular and American culture.
