CFP: Lesbians and Bisexual Women on Television (1/15/06; anthology)

In recent years, several academic texts have been published on queer representation on television including Steven Capsuto's Alternate Channels, Larry Gross' Up From Invisibility and Stephen Tropiano's The Prime Time Closet. Many of these studies focus largely, or at times exclusively, on gay men, and almost all focus solely on American examples. With the ongoing expansion in terms of both the volume and quality of representation of lesbian and bisexual women on television, the time has now come for an academic anthology that focuses on the representation of queer women on television internationally.

 

Potential thematics could include but are not limited to an analysis of:

The deadline for interdisciplinary workshop proposals for "Attending to Early Modern Women--and Men" has been extended to October 6, 2005. We hope you are drafting a proposal!

While the keynote address and plenary speakers will concentrate on what
scholars of early modern women can learn from considering men and
masculinity, workshops may consider masculinity or CONTINUE PAST CONVERSATIONS ABOUT WOMEN AND GENDER. Workshops should, however, focus
on one of the plenary topics themselves: theorizing gender, childhood,
violence, and pedagogies.

Proposals should be postmarked OCTOBER 6, 2005. The conference convenes in College Park, MD, November 9-11, 2006.

CFP: Religion and Gender in the Early Modern Period (3/15/06; collection)

Religion and Gender in the Early Modern Period:

This is a call for papers for a book-length collection of essays that brings
into dialogue male and female voices on the question of gender and religion
in the literature, visual arts, religious writings, and culture of the late
medieval and early modern period. We are interested in treatments of
authors who directly or indirectly engage one another in debate, but we are
also interested in bringing into dialogue by their juxtaposition in this
collection male and female voices of authors who may not necessarily have
known of each other's work but who nonetheless seem to "speak" to one
another.
