New Feminist Publication: RAG QUEEN PERIODICAL-Call for prose and poetry

updated: 
Thursday, October 29, 2015 - 7:11pm
Rag Queen Periodical

We are preparing to launch a brand new postmodern omnifem publication: Rag Queen Periodical. We are seeking submissions in POETRY AND PROSE.

Écriture féminine. This term is what we had in mind when establishing Rag Queen. We want to feature writing about the embodiment of womanhood, regardless of how that's manifested in your life.

We are interested in deviating from neoliberal, corporate feminism and instead focusing on subverting the erasure of female agency and identity. Nuance, intersectionality, and evocative storytelling are our signposts.

Drawing from varied womynfluences, we set sail on a spring tide into, as Betty Friedan would say, "Woman: The Fourth Dimension."

Theorizing Irish-Hyphenate Literary and Cultural Studies

updated: 
Wednesday, October 28, 2015 - 7:51pm
American Conference for Irish Studies (ACIS) Annual Meeting 2016 University of Notre Dame

This panel welcomes submissions on theorizing Irish-hyphenate (Irish-Canadian, Irish-American, Irish-Caribbean, etc.) literary and cultural studies. Given the conference theme of "The Worlding of Irish Studies" this panel will consider how "non-Irish" national boundaries and national literary histories complicate in practical and theoretical ways Irish-hyphenate studies. How do the critical discourses and methodological assumptions of disciplines within the "non-Irish" part of the hyphenate inflect and shape literary and cultural studies of Irish-hyphenate texts? More broadly, what is the relationship between Irish Studies and, for example, Irish American studies or Irish Canadian studies?

Sarah Piatt at 180 and Palace - Burner at 15: the View from 2016

2016 will mark the 180th anniversary of Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt's birth and the 15th anniversary of the groundbreaking publication of Paula Bernat Bennett's Palace - Burner, the first modern anthology of the poet's work. Since her mid-nineteenth-century arrival on America's literary scene, Sarah Piatt has been recognized for her "womanly" subject matter and ethos, and the "feminine" quality of her poetry has been aptly characterized by nineteenth-century British author Alice Meynell "not as a grace, but as a force."
