CFP: Un/Natural Histories Issue 16 FORUM

Sunday, December 30, 2012 - 2:19pm
FORUM Postgraduate Journal

Although European thought has traditionally placed 'nature' in opposition to 'culture', as the title UN/NATURAL HISTORIES suggests, the world in which we find ourselves and the narratives we tell about it can also be seen to stand in a shifting and mutually influential relationship to one another. Recent work in eco-criticism has emphasised the importance of the relationship between our environment and the literary work we produce; while in popular culture, programmes such as the BBC's Unnatural Histories (2011) investigate the ways in which even the most pristine 'natural' spaces can be seen as human constructions.

Women and Work: panel proposed for ASA conference, November 21-24, 2013, Washington, D.C.

American Studies Association

The meaning of "women's work" has never been stable. While women have consistently engaged with the production of home as well as labor outside the home, their involvement in what Marx conceptualized as wage-for-labor power exchange did not achieve heightened visibility in U.S. cultures until the nineteenth century. "Women and Work" seeks to explore the many ways that women have offered their labor in service of their families, their communities, and their nation and how labor has contributed to women's sense of belonging to (or exclusion from) these same communities. How do U.S. women represent the work of being women -- where "work" encompasses not only paid labor inside and outside the home, but also the work of performing femininity and domesticity?
