The latest research indicates that more than 400 million people embark annually on traditional pilgrimages in Saudi Arabia, India, Japan, and elsewhere, with the numbers steadily increasing. Pilgrimage is one of the most ancient practices of humankind and is associated with a great variety of religious and spiritual traditions, beliefs and sacred geographies. These include the small-scale ‘walkabout’ of Outback Australian Aborigines in search of their own and their country’s spiritual renewal, the Sufi journey to the Mausoleum of Sidi Shaykh in the Algerian West Sahara, or to Lourdes in France, which welcomes over five million Catholic pilgrims each year in search of healing or deliverance.

The past, the present and the future are united by tensions. Tensions between them; their ideologies, landscapes and temporal climates, and tensions they share; questions of identity, art and social responsibility. Every generation faces political binaries as we struggle to reconcile a world fraught with difference. Not only are our understandings of race, gender and nation constantly shifting in relation to new discoveries and ideas, but the ways in which we communicate these ideas are in dialogue.

We are soliciting submissions for a special issue in Feminist Teacher focusing on pedagogies employed by women of color while in graduate school. Often, we do not critically engage with the formative processes and experiences that shape our future teaching praxis. This issue focuses on how we learn from our successes and failures in the classroom including women of color’s creation of supportive mentoring and peer networks. We envision these essays serving as touchstone in the ongoing conversations on how women of color survive and thrive in the academy.

Immigration and Deportation

Abstract Submission Deadline: April 30, 2017

Conference Dates: August 23-24, 2017

For thousands of people, violence and persecution drive them from their homeland, seeking safety and solace. Situations of fleeing from violence, political unrest, escaping poverty, seeking freedom, seeking opportunity, joining loved-ones, or environmental disaster (Heartland Alliance), may cause either sudden or planned upheaval. While the threat to life remains constant, the immigration process can take years. Most people take the legal route to move to a new country; others immigrate illegally.


Korean Dramatic Tradition and Contemporary Practices

Modern English Drama Association of Korea (MEDAK) invites contributions for a planned collaboration with Kritika Kultura on the Korean dramatic tradition.

As an Asian country, Korea has an Asian identity. It shares much of its historical experiences and cultural background with other Asian nations. However, it is reasonable to say that Korea has more deep-rooted relationships with China and Japan—all together referred to as “East Asia”—than with South-East Asian countries. It is because Korea was historically an isolated kingdom, probably almost never having gone beyond the neighborhood of North-East Asian region. Nevertheless, with globalization, in many ways, Korea has opened itself to the world.

Revisiting the Elegy: Mourning and Resistance

“And there is pause, a breathspace in the strife;/A spirit brave has passed beyond the mists/And vapors that obscure the sun of life./And
Ethiopia, with bosom torn,/Laments the passing of her noblest born.”
