FEMINIST & GENDER STUDIES IN A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE:
Call for Papers Atlantis: Critical Studies in Gender, Culture & Social Justice/Études critiques sur le genre, la culture, et la justice sociale Extended Deadline: August 1, 2017 Issue 39.2 Thematic Cluster: The Rise of “Alt-Right” Discourse, the Backlash against Social Justice, and ResistancesEditors: Sara Matthews & Nathan Rambukkana In a Daily Intelligencer article dated November 6, 2016, Rembert Browne coined the term “the intersectionality of hate” as a way to frame how the so-called “alt-right” coalesced and mobilized their various populist platforms of hatred in support of then Presidential candidate Donald J.
A return to the feminisms of the 1970s is one of the most salient dimensions of feminist studies to emerge over the last decade. Scholarly books, special issues of academic journals, conferences, exhibitions, and research forums have revisited this decade in which feminism became a discernible liberation movement rewriting political and cultural landscapes around the globe. Vibrant with differentiation, moving across multiple practices and disciplines, this return can be characterized in at least two ways. First of all, it creates and traces subtle lines of inquiry between the purported triumphs and failures of 1970s feminisms.
On June 12, 2016, Jamaican author Michelle Cliff passed away quietly and to little public fanfare. Despite her many contributions to Caribbean literature, women’s studies, and feminist writings, her passing received only one article in the New York Times. In this article, she became a footnote to the life of her long-time companion, Adrianne Rich. For a writer and scholar of her magnitude, Cliff did not receive an elegy commensurate with the depth of her work. The avoidance of Cliff’s memory raises several questions. For example, was Cliff receiving a post-mortem censure for being a feminist and/or a lesbian? As the late Adrianne Rich’s partner, was Cliff only worthy of mention as an addendum to Rich’s life?
This call for papers is for those scholars who teach Italian language and literature abroad:
Il giovane d’Annunzio e la fascinazione del teatro
Ebook delle Edizioni Sinestesie, Collana “Il Parlaggio”
Questa raccolta di saggi in formato ebook si propone di valutare un aspetto molto significativo, ma ancora poco indagato, della giovinezza di Gabriele d’Annunzio: la rilevanza del teatro nei suoi anni romani e nella sua prima produzione giornalistica.
This section of the academic journal “Sinestesieonline” is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages.
“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.

The fourth international Light Moves Festival of Screendance symposium announces its open call for papers and presentations entitled Screendance Through the Senses. The symposium sits within a festival and encourges artistic and scholarly exchange, debate and discussion in screendance and related disciplines including performance, dance, film, visual arts, sound and text.
This panel continues the work started by the "Ecology of Ageism in the Long Eighteenth Century," a panel at ASECS in 2016 that focused on the constructions of age in the eighteenth century. Not only a reflection of genes or time, aging is a cultural discourse that affects the interpolation of identity and the power dynamics of privilege. "The Body Aged: Performance, Disability, and Queer Aging in the Long Eighteenth Century" seeks to expand the discussion of aging by connecting age studies to work in performance theory, disability studies, and queer studies.

In light of recent questions of immigration and terrorism, international politics has recently seen a surge in concern for “domestic” issues: the security, well-being, and unity of the nation. Increasingly, countries like France and the United States are “closing their doors” to the rest of the world, reasserting the boundaries of their “homelands.”
