Update is for last sentence of CFP

The Food Memoir: Tales of Family and Culture

An Increasingly popular subgenre of autobiography, a form of
autobiography that Paul John Eakin calls the "relational life story,"
the food memoir (by M.F.K. Fisher, Leslie Li, and Ruth Reichl, for
example) intertwines narratives of family life, travel, and
cross-cultural experiences with recipes and the author's representation
of an evolving self. Essays about published memoirs of 7 to 8 pages or
250-word abstracts are welcome.

Thanks very much.

Sixteenth Annual Pacific Southwest Womens Studies Association
Conference:
Students and Teachers Working Together
Confronting Unnatural Disasters: Feminist Engagements Across and Within
Borders
 
April 22, 2006 - Occidental College, Los Angeles
Call for Proposals
In the last year, the world has experienced "natural" disasters of
horrific proportions
-- the Asian tsunami, hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean
regions,
mudslides in Central America, and an earthquake in Pakistan. The
enormity of
these disasters and the devastation that has resulted from connected
human failings
is borne out disproportionately along gender, race, and class lines.
Such disasters

A Conference on "Feminism and War"
October 20-22, 2006, at Syracuse University

Call for Proposals

The Women's Studies Program at Syracuse University invites proposals for papers to be presented at a national conference on the contested and complex relationship between feminism and war. The focus will be on recent U.S. government initiatives that claim war in the name of women's liberation, but with a global and transnational context in which other military actions might be considered. We look forward to energetic dialogue from interdisciplinary perspectives on these sub-themes:
