CEDAW and religious texts: paving the way beyond gender oppression and misogyny.

 

The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) was adopted in 1979 by the UN General Assembly, and can be seen as an international bill of rights for women. All countries that have accepted the Convention are compelled to follow up with a series of measures that would end all forms of discrimination against women. Any country that has ratified or acceded to the Convention, is legally and morally obliged to ensure that women are not discriminated against, or oppressed.

I seek two other papers for a panel on the alternately symbiotic and antagonistic relationship between Broadway and Hollywood--as entertainment industries, cultural destinations, and/or aesthetics. The circulation of talent and content between Broadway and Hollywood obviously has a long and complex history, from Hollywood's poaching of Broadway talent during the early sound era to its bankrolling of Broadway shows as early as the 1930s.

In contemporary studies of the Middle Ages, questions of visuality have increasingly dominated analyses of artistic production, in part because of the central role of vision in medieval theological and scientific discourse. This session seeks to broaden the conversation around medieval visuality by asking not only what it meant to see in the Middle Ages, but also what it meant to be seen, and how these networks of viewership could be depicted in the pictorial arts, literature, architecture, music, and drama.

Creativity and Knowledge Cultures

Creativity is an object of study, a process of knowledge production, and a contemporary cultural obsession that crosses many disciplines. This special issue of Knowledge Cultures (http://www.addletonacademicpublishers.com/knowledge-cultures) seeks to generate new and potentially disruptive conversations about creativity by paying attention to the diversity – and, perhaps, even, incommensurability – of knowledge practices around creativity that exist across a broad range of disciplinary fields.

Gilbert. […] just as artistic creation implies the working of the critical faculty, and, indeed, without it cannot be said to exist at all, so Criticism is really creative in the highest sense of the word.
