CFP: White Male Embodiment (04/01/04; Collection)


We are gathering articles for a proposed collection on the white male
body as text and representation.

Recently, a number of scholars have responded to the lack of scholarship =
pertaining to manhood and the male body, and have paid increasing =
attention to the role and status of white men. This recent work suggests =
that embodying white men usefully dismantles the myth of a monolithic =
disembodied privileged white manhood. Not surprisingly, this still =
relatively new focus on the white male body and white male difference =
has provided a beginning rather than an end and still leaves a =
significant gap.

Hungry Words: Images of Famine in the Irish Canon

Deadline extended to May 15, 2004

Abstracts of 500 words or essays of around 9,000 words are being solicited
for Hungry Words, an anthology which will examine representations of hunge=
or famine in the works of canonical Irish authors. The terms =B3famine=B2 and
=B3canonical=B2 are, of course, loaded ones in Irish studies, and it is my
particular desire to collect essays which question the various
manifestations of these terms in recent literary scholarship.

Native American Writing Systems and (Counter)Discourses of Identity

This session will consider the role of Native American writing systems
and recordkeeping before contact and in post-contact literatures.
Especially welcomed are papers that consider how indigenous literacies
are informed by different worldviews than Eurowestern literacies, how
Native writing is conceived of as a socially-constituted act, and how
early tribal writers invoke and deploy these methods of record as unique
rhetorical strategies. Please send an abstract and one-page vita to by January 10.
