CFP: Special Issue of Journal of International Women's
Studies (deadline: 15 Nov 2004)

Volumes: New Perspectives on the Gendered Construction
of Space(s)

>From prisons to temples, red-light districts to office
parks, malls to street markets, toilets to tea
gardens, space reflects and reproduces power
relations. This special issue of the JIWS seeks to
examine the topic of gendered constructions of
space(s). How does space structure our understanding
of gender? How does it participate in cultural
constructions of race, class, and sexuality? What are
the political and economic dimensions of the spaces
that we construct and that construct us?

Call for Papers
DSQ Theme Issue: Freakery
Summer 2005

Disability Studies Quarterly announces a Call for Papers for a theme issue
on "Freakery." Since the 1996 publication of the anthology Freakery:
Cultural Spectacles of the Extraordinary Body, the freak no longer
occupies the margins of interdisciplinary scholarly discourse. Many
scholars, following Leslie Fiedler's framing of the "Tyranny of the
Normal" paradigm, have commented on freakery's applicability to and
usefulness in a wide variety of academic, social, and political
discourses. This special issue of DSQ seeks to represent the current use
of freak research by today's scholars.
