CFP: [Gender Studies] Ecology & Ideology

Special Issue: Ecology and Ideology

The contemporary moment abounds with speculation concerning our ecological
future. Specialists in a variety of fields forecast immanent catastrophe,
stemming from a combination of climate change, fossil-fuel depletion, and
consumer waste. The recent bestowal of the Nobel Peace Prize on a group of
scientists studying climate change indicates the degree to which "peace"
has come to signify ecological balance; even the declaration by the Vatican
of a new set of "7 Deadly Sins for the modern age" includes pollution in an
attempt to grapple with the potential of individuals to inflict ecological
damage on a global scale.

Critical Matrix: The Princeton Journal of Women, Gender, and Culture 
Volume 18: Collaboration
Critical Matrix: The Princeton Journal of Women, Gender, and Culture invites original submissions
for its forthcoming issue dedicated to collaboration. As the rhetoric of collaboration permeates
contemporary discourseâ€"from political and economic globalization to “relational aesthetics”â€"
what is the potential for new feminist practices and what are the historical lessons of feminism
about the limits and possibilities of collaborative practices?
To collaborate means to work together, usually in order to create and/or to change something.

FORUM: The University of Edinburgh Postgraduate Journal of Culture and the Arts

Issue 7: HAUNTING

The idea of haunting points to a residue or surplus of meaning that cannot be affirmed in the
presence and nevertheless makes itself known in unexpected and disruptive ways. The haunting
traces of the forgotten, the disavowed and the effaced fundamentally undermine and trouble
what we have come to know and rely on as, or in, the presence. In this sense, haunting opens up
the complex possibility of spectral knowledge and emerges as a powerful tool of
conceptualisation and representation.
