PHILAMENT invites contributors for its fifth edition. This upcoming issue is to
circulate around ideas of Ornament.

Deadline: Friday 11th June 2004.

Ornament. So, for example, you might like to write an article about puritanical
insignia in early American literature, or about the physical and psychological
scarring of teenagers in young adult literature. Equally, you could submit a
paper on the translational slippage between scripts (transcript, manuscript,
etc) on the road to publication. Any way you look at it, you are writing about
ornament. And you ornament as you do so. Maybe you could write about that.

Go on then, adorn us.

Ornamental ideas, suggestions, texts or otherwise:

CFP: National Women's Studies Association Journal (NWSA Journal)

Special Issue on Aging, Ageism, and Old Age, Spring 2006

Feminist theorists of old age, such as Baba Copper, Barbara Macdonald,
Cynthia Rich, and Margaret Cruikshank have charged that women's studies and
the feminist movement have, in large part, ignored the issue of aging. In a
field in which so many other aspects of body-based identity are recognized,
debated, de- and re-constructed, and challenged, the subject of old age
remains relatively unexamined and untheorized - nearly taboo.

Skandalon: a graduate journal of theory

Call for Papers

Skandalon is a refereed graduate e-journal edited and published by the students of the Centre for the Study of Theory & Criticism, University of Western Ontario.

Within the confines of its biblical and ecclesiastical heritage, the word skandalon signifies a seductive enticement or occasion that incites behaviour that leads one to turn away from God and enter a movement towards ruin. In this very movement of reversal, however, there resides a going astray that points towards the thinking or theorizing of, or on, the scandalized.

Edited Book on Recent Arab Women's Autobiographical Writings in English
Call for contribution

    My book Reading Arab Women's Autobiographies. Shahrazad Tells Her
Story was published last November (2003) by Texas University Press.
The book fills a gap in the field. Texas University Press expressed
interest in another book in the same area.
    In the book, I looked at autobiographical, fictional
autobiographical and anthologies of interviews with women. I read texts
by Huda Shaarawi, Nawal El-Saadawi, Fadwa Tuqan, Bouthaina Shaaban,
Fatima Mernissi, and Nayra Atiya. The book also examined the
sociopolitical background of the texts as well as the tradition of
narrative theory.
