Michigan Feminist Studies invites submissions for its 2006-2007 issue
on the theme of "Knowledge." Feminist theory and practice have long
been concerned both with how knowledge is constituted and with what
types of types of knowledge are valued. Moreover, feminist analysis
has reflexively examined its own production and evaluation of
knowledge. This volume of Michigan Feminist Studies seeks to further

encourage submissions that draw linkages between gender and other
social identities, including, but not limited to race, sexual

Panel Title: Hemingway as Father
MLA Conference in Chicago, December 27-30, 2007
 
Much of the existing scholarship on Hemingway and fathers focuses on his relationship or those of his young male characters to his/their father. For this panel, we invite papers that address Hemingway as father. Papers might explore topics such as Hemingway's attitudes toward fatherhood, his parenting philosophy, his relationship to his sons (real and fictional), etc. and/or Hemingway's status as a literary patriarch including but not limited to the commodification of fatherhood through Hemingway's image as "Papa."

Abstract deadline: 2/16/07

This is a call for papers that address the topic of gay masculinity. Can there be such a thing, or rather, are there many types of masculinities or is there only one masculinity? Must a gay masculinity (which is usually labeled as inadequate or excessive) always be defined against the heteronormative definition of what is masculine ? Academic pieces that consider these topics, and others of the same theme, are welcome.
