The Age and Ageism Caucus of the National Women's Studies Association is seeking submissions for the 2020 annual NWSA conference. The conference will take place Nov. 12-15 in Minnepolis. This year’s theme is The Poetics, Politics, and Praxis of Transnational Feminisms.
This year the call for papers includes no subthemes, but all proposed panels should touch upon the central theme of transnationalism. We seek papers that look at aging as it takes place in a globalized world, with heightened interconnectivity between people, a global economy and new inequalities that come along with it.
The official CfP NWSA states (this is an excerpt):

Issue Eight: Invisibility (escaping notice)Call for Papers / Works
Silence, unseen, unspeakable, inapreciable, faint, concealed, unheard, impalpable. These are terms that fall within the semantic realm of invisibility. How do we begin to speak about, create alongside, sit with, and/or reflect on what cannot -by definition- be reified?
Invisibility offers the opportunity to retrospectively observe and chronicle what goes (un)intentionally ignored. On the other hand, to acknowledge invisibility is to deterritorialize our sight, to be open to experience what is around us without hierarchizing the senses. Verónica Gerber Bicecci (2010) writes,
MAST: Journal of Media Art, Study and Theory
CFP Issue 2: Media, Materiality and Emergency
deadline: 30th June 2020
Guest editor: Dr. Timothy Barker (University of Glasgow)
In what ways do questions of materiality matter in a time of crisis? What does it mean to explore the matter of things at a time when we are threatened with the annihilation of that matter, its disappearance, or its disintegration? The second issue of MAST journal seeks to answer and further explore these questions through essays from arts practitioners and theorists.

THE FUTURE OF THE UNIVERSITY
A Conference at the University of Tulsa
April 16-18, 2020
Many institutions of higher learning are currently considering plans for a significant restructure of academic programs which raises key questions regarding the essential purpose of the American University.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner, Nadia Murad, a former captive of ISIS is an essential reminder of the sacrifices women make during a war which often go unnoticed or unacknowledged as heroic. In countless areas of the Global South, the female body has endured physical and psychological violation. Rape is an effective strategy of war and ethnic cleansing, and the violated community finds it difficult to speak about their fate during the time of war and of peace as well. In most cases, the raped body goes silent, feeling ashamed and fearing retributions from all spheres of life.

After the success of the Folk Horror in the Twenty First Century conference hosted by Falmouth University, we are holding another related conference in 2020.
The present is dark. With the rise of right-wing populism, global migrations and immigrations, continued violence, abuse and crime, prejudice and intolerance, there is increasing anxiety about the future. The Earth itself is under threat from environmental catastrophe and a mass extinction event is anticipated. The collapse of society, morality, and the environment was often also feared in the past, particularly in Gothic, horror and dystopian fictions and texts. What were the monsters of the past? What are our monsters now?
Call for Book Chapters: The Other #MeToos
Chapter proposal submission deadline: 15 March 2020

This edited collection focuses on the reception, translation, and adaptation of #MeToo in non-Western, indigenous, and/or postcolonial contexts; it aims to explore how #MeToo, a popularly Western-centric feminist movement, translates to politically, culturally, religiously, geographically, and academically Othered places and Othered genders.

Call for papers for a book approved for publication by Routledge, on Bollywood cinema, expected to fall within the interdisciplinary spaces of Cultural Studies, Film Studies and Postcolonial Studies.
Even as the air in Delhi grows increasingly toxic and poisonous, a fearful, dreaded specter is haunting the subcontinent today, just as toxic as the poisonous air. The rise and rise of Hindutva, or Hindu nationalism or political Hindu agenda that has engulfed India has also initiated the favorite pursuit of right wing of invoking the ‘glorious past’. This ‘glorious past is primarily being invoked by a surge of historical(s) in Bollywood.
