Sexuality and Agency
An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Saturday 12th October 2019 - Sunday 13th October 2019
Vienna, Austria

From government incentives for women to have more children and the ‘slut-shaming’ phenomenon, to the erasure of rights and legal recognition of LGBTIQ++ people, and beyond, we live in a time where political and social forces play a powerful role in regulating our sexuality and sexual behaviour. It is therefore necessary and timely to consider how sexuality is related to our agency as human beings, particularly in terms of how autonomy and self-determination shape and are shaped by sex and sexuality.

Special Issue of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning: The Toil of Feeling: Education as Emotional Labor

updated: 
Thursday, February 21, 2019 - 8:45am
Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2019

This special issue of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning (JAEPL) seeks to elucidate the continually undervalued and unrecognized aspects of emotional labor in education for both students and instructors. Although emphases on outcomes, skills, and cognition serve valuable purposes, they also tend to eclipse emotional processes that are taken for granted and therefore rendered invisible despite being vital aspects of the labor performed by stakeholders in all educational settings.  This special issue will take as its premise the notion that we must consider emotions as work in order to obtain a fuller picture of what transpires with teachers and learners in institutional contexts and beyond.

FINAL REMINDER: Call for Articles - Special Issue of the Journal of Homosexuality - "Queer Subjectivities and the United States"

updated: 
Thursday, February 21, 2019 - 8:13am
University of East Anglia
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 22, 2019

Recent upheaval from the Trump administration’s policy-making in the United States has seen the lives of queer subjects radically altered. This has included numerous executive orders that seek to curtail the power and agency of certain groups based on race, disability, gender, and sexuality particularly. Such identity distinctions are being made through an increasingly nationalist, and therefore heteronormative, lens which lends itself to the supremacy of ideals that support hegemonic cultural discourse.
