The 5th Christina Conference on Gender Studies focuses on the role of concepts in feminist thought. Concepts are crucial in all research, and also often deeply political, as feminist scholarship creates and circulates conceptual innovations which transform social realities transnationally. Concepts such as "gender" and "queer" have already showed their transformational power.

Looking ahead to the sesquicentenary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the Southern American Studies Association is honored to welcome distinguished historians ERIC FONER and TIYA MILES to Charleston as our plenary speakers. We've borrowed our quite broad theme from an observation President Lincoln made less than a year before his assassination: "We all declare for liberty, but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing." We welcome a range of panel proposals and individual paper proposals that zero in on one or more of these three intertwined and still contested terms -- emancipation, liberty and freedom – placing them in a range of contexts reflecting the richness of American Studies.

Samuel Johnson may have been wrong about the staying power of Tristram Shandy, but it is nevertheless clear that some of the eighteenth century's oddest works didn't "do long."
Following Benjamin, the flâneur is widely linked with urban spaces of the mid- and late-nineteenth century, but what of those who strolled the streets in the years just before and after the turn of the century? As industrialization began to transform major cities, did these earlier figures have a different relationship with flânerie than their later-century counterparts experienced in more commercialized spaces? Please email 250-500 word abstracts examining Romantic-era flâneurs to Kellie Donovan-Condron (email@example.com).
