CFP: [Poetry] Voicing the Future in Latina/o Literature (ALA 5/21-5/25 2008)

Wednesday, November 5, 2008 - 1:57pm
Elizabeth Anne Jacobs

The panel will explore expressions of the future in Latino/a theatre,
poetry and performance. Papers may focus on one text or performance, on
works by one author, or on multiple writers/performers within the Latino/a
ethnic group. Papers are sought that explore various kinds of imagined
futures in terms of dystopic or utopic environments, landscapes and
communities; political futures; gendered subjectivities and racial
constructions. I am particularly interested in essays that explore how
these futures are articulated and physically expressed, and hope to get
papers that examine these representations in contemporary Latina/o theatre,
performance and poetry.

CFP: [Gender Studies] Unmothers/Mothering in American Women's Writing: SSAWW Conference 2009

updated: 
Monday, November 3, 2008 - 4:13pm
Dr. Maglina Lubovich

Feminist theory and literary criticism has had much to say about the role
of motherhood in American literature, from theories of “republican
motherhood” to early domestic manuals like Lydia Maria Child’s The
Mother’s Book, from the maternal (and/or the absent mother) in women’s
sentimental fiction to the slave narrative, from the connection between
motherhood and creativity to the mother’s psychic power in psychoanalytic
terms.

CFP: [Film] Reading MAD MEN: A Critical Anthology

Reading MAD MEN: A Critical Anthology

MAD MEN is a phrase synonymous with the stylized glamour and ruthless
competition of 1960s Madison Avenue: male executives with skinny ties and
large fedoras and bigger egos, female assistants in boldly colored, form-
fitting skirts, and the ubiquitous three-martini lunch. The show MAD MEN
has become a cultural phenomenon, detailing America’s preoccupation with
commercialism and image in the Camelot of 1960s Kennedy-era America,
while self-consciously exploring our own culture’s obsession with image
and self-invention.
