Waters are contested entities that are currently at the centre of most scientific discussions about sustainability. Discourse around water management underlines both the serious absence and devastating overabundance of water: rising sea levels compete against desertification; hurricanes and floods follow periods of prolonged drought.

Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies
deadline for submissions:

A.K. Ramanujan in a poem entitled “Small-scale Reflections on a Great House” had mused, “Sometimes I think that nothing/that ever comes into this house/goes out. Things come in every day/to lose themselves among other things/lost long ago among/other things lost long ago”. The description may seem oddly apt for the field of postcolonial studies which continues to search for new shores even as some of the concerns of the past begin to fade with the inevitable processes of history. Even as the field remains committed to a quest for emancipation from violence and discrimination and deprivation, caused by the forces of race, class, gender, sexuality and a number of other factors, the modalities continue to change and the boundaries begin to blur.

Cambridge Scholars Publishing
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 1, 2017

The second half of the nineteenth century was marked by the emergence of the global women’s movement. Feminism altered the course of literature by challenging those literary conventions that governed the portrayal of women and women's experience at the fin de siècle. Feminist texts explicitly advocated social change and discussed new women’s roles in society. This edited volume Liberating Herself: Emancipationist Writing at the Fin de Siècle (under contract with Cambridge Scholars Publishing) welcomes contributions on any aspect of nineteenth-century literary feminism. Comparative approaches are welcome. By April 1, please submit a 250-300 word abstract and your CV to Dr.

Women in Literature MMLA 2017—“Literatures from the Lockdown”

 

Thinking about this year’s MMLA theme, “Art and Activism,” led us to consider the ways in which women’s art and women’s activism have been “locked down.” Sometimes women’s art and women’s activism locks itself down; after all, Audre Lorde once proclaimed at an MLA conference, “What does it mean when the tools of a racist patriarchy are used to examine the fruits of that same patriarchy? It means that only the most narrow perimeters of change are possible and allowable.” How, then, do we escape the lockdown? How do we empower even as we resist?

Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Teaching writing has always existed in the intersection of artistry and activism. Writing instructors encourage their students to attend to style, voice, and other aesthetic elements of their text. Writing instructors also encourage their students to think of their work as socially situated and able to effect change in the “real world” outside of the classroom.
The Teaching Writing in College section welcomes all submissions but is particularly interested in those that consider writing instruction in relation to artistry and activism. Possible topics include but are not limited:
