"Ni Féministes, Ni Soumises": Female identity in the banlieues

Friday, September 30, 2016

In March 2010, journalists Faïza Zerouala and Widad Kefti published an invited column in Le Monde entitled “Ni Féministes, Ni Soumises.”  Then in their mid-20s and blogging for the Bondy Blog, they targeted the Republican feminism promoted by “Ni Putes, Ni Soumises,” the state-sponsored banlieue-based feminist organization.  Over the last decade, new ways of understanding female identity in the banlieue have multiplied alongside and sometimes in reaction to the NPNS agenda, including expressions of an intersectional and postcolonial feminism in which questions of gender, race, and class converge.  In the same timeframe, women's creative production has grown and diversified, holding at its center ways of being and doing as a fema

Brief abstracts are invited for a volume of essays about the uses of poetry in pedagogical contexts other than college English and Creative Writing courses.  How (if at all) do instructors in other humanities, social science, and science disciplines engage with poetry?  How do those working outside of the academy use poetry to promote literacy, cognition, or affective competence?  We are negotiating with a major academic publisher and there will be a peer review process.  At this point, we are just seeking 500 word abstracts for original scholarly essays.  Please email 500-word abstracts, with cv, to Sandra Lee Kleppe, Hamar University College, sandra.kleppe@hihm.no, by September 15, 2016.

Hell Studies: Hellish Remixes

Remix Studies is a nascent but fast-growing field. Just last year Routledge published its first critical companion to Remix Studies, and interest in the field -- which critically examines the relationships of sources and analogues, as well as the production and reproduction of texts -- is steadily growing. That said, to this point very little attempt has been made to apply this theory to the study of medieval materials. This session proposes to jump-start the discourse of Remix Studies in a medieval context by providing a venue for discussion.

The recent scholarly turn towards greater consideration of the material culture of the Middle Ages paradoxically also draws attention back to the places where materiality is strikingly absent. Monsters are often seen by medieval and modern commentators as inextricably linked with their embodiment, and yet are frequently insubstantial.

There is a metaphysical gravity that pulls consciousness towards the incomprehensible darkness of ‘dread,’ like the impulse to willingly dive into the abyss, as into something utterly unknown - an analogy made famous by Kierkegaard in The Concept of Dread. But what is dread, exactly, and what are the cultural, philosophical and physical significances of a genre that uses dread as its primary structure of feeling? Is ‘horror’ even a genre? Can it be encompassing of dread, terror, angst or revulsion?

Levering Expectations: Young People and Popular Arts Culture in Africa

Since Karen Barber theorized the notion of “African popular arts” nearly thirty years ago (1987), a rich field of scholarship has developed around the term, exploring forms of local African expression by the people, for the people, and most often, about the people. The concept of African popular culture has been applied to a vast array of cultural forms in Africa ranging from Onitsha pamphlet literature to Kenyan matatu minibus inscriptions, Ghanaian Concert party theatre, Angolan hip-hop, Nollywood video films, Cameroonian detective fiction, Congolese Sapeur fashion, South African cartooning, trans-continental TV shows like Big Brother Africa, and much more.

Children in American Television: A Changing Landscape

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

Call for submissions to a collection that interrogates the child image in popular post-WWII American television programming.  This collection seeks to trace the American cultural landscape and its impact on the ways popular television (re) imagined childhood and children during each decade.  We invite submissions that examine either children’s programming or programs that prominently feature children. These submissions will explore how US television has been a significant conduit for the public consumption of changing ideas about children and childhood, and will connect relevant events, attitudes, or anxieties in American culture to an analysis of children or childhood in American television programs.
