Interrogating Self-Care: Bodies, Personhood, & Movements in Tumultuous Times

In her 1988 book A Burst of Light, Audre Lorde said, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation and that is an act of political warfare.” The concept of self-care, which arose through the activist practices specifically of marginalized groups, has been increasingly adopted and discussed by health care settings, non-profit organizations, commercial and marketing enterprises, and psychological approaches. National discourse around self-care has increased exponentially since the 2016 presidential election. Yet, few academics have explored the theory, implementation, and impacts of this concept.

New Feminist Materialism and Queer Studies in the Anthropocene

updated: 
Monday, November 12, 2018 - 4:33pm
gender forum: An Internet Journal for Gender Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 15, 2018

We would like to invite contributions exploring an intellectual meeting ground between new feminist and queer materialisms and affect theory, environmental humanities, science studies, and many more inter- and transdisciplinary fields. New/feminist materialisms and the affective turn are emerging at a time in need for alternative visions of the world threatened by human exceptionalism, ecological terror(ism), and devastating, extinction-fostering capital flows: they pose the question of how to theorize and practice ethical and decidedly posthuman or rather nonanthropocentric feminisms in the geological era of the (late capitalist) Anthropocene.

Queer Worldmaking

Monday, November 12, 2018 - 4:19pm
QED:
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2019

QED: A Journal in GLBTQ Worldmaking (published 3 times/yr.) brings together scholars, activists, public intellectuals, artists, and policy and culture makers to discuss and mobilize issues and initiatives that matter to the diverse lived experience, struggle, and transformation of LGBTQ peoples and communities wherever they may be. With an emphasis on worldmaking praxis, QED welcomes theory, criticism, history, policy analysis, public argument, and creative exhibition, seeking to foster intellectual and activist work through essays, commentaries, interviews, roundtable discussions, and book and event reviews. Our use of the term “worldmaking” is much more deliberate in its derivation.
