The international refereed journal Australian Feminist Studies (Routledge/Taylor & Francis) is seeking contributions for a 2018 special themed issue on FASHION to be edited by Maryanne Dever and Lisa Adkins with guest co-editor Ilya Parkins. 

We are keenly interested in receiving articles that demonstrate how intersectional, feminist theoretical tools support new analyses of fashion, more than articles simply focusing on the relationship between feminism and fashion.

His Beautiful Dark Twisted Imagery: Kanye West’s Moving Image Aesthetic

Brandon Arroyo. Concordia University, Montreal

Monday, August 7, 2017

Whenever someone tells me that they “hate” Kanye West I immediately ask them if they are familiar with his music, most of the time the answer is an emphatic: “no!” Granted, West seems to almost fetishize this self-created divide between his abrasive and confrontational public persona, and his introspective and heartfelt musical lyrics. However, this is due to his insistence on having both his public appearances and music act as provocations that actively question norms around masculinity, the black experience in America, and the life of an artist.

Female Editorship in Italy and the Trans-Formation of the Public Sphere

49th annual NeMLA convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (April 12 to 15, 2018)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This roundtable outlines possible avenues for theoretical reflection on the connections between the periodical press in Italy and the participation of women in the public sphere. Focus will be set on two main areas: a) the genesis and the early development of the press in Italy throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, b) the emergence of female editorship and its contribution to the transnational exchange of ideas during the 19th and 20th centuries. Recent scholarship has defined periodical studies as a vibrant field of research which aims to explore the role of the press in the dissemination of knowledge, the circulation of ideas and the formation of culture (Jack Censer, 1994; Pierre Rétat, 2001; Hilary Fraser, 2003).

The Presence of Women Editors in the Press Industry (1850-1950)

Wednesday, June 14, 2017 - 10:55am
49th annual NeMLA convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (April 12 to 15, 2018)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel examines the active participation of women in the public dialogue through the prism of their periodical publications. The rise of the periodical press has been recognized as a key factor in the formation of the public sphere in the nineteenth century (Habermas 1962). Studies of twentieth-century editorship, however, tend to take the institutionalization of editorship for granted. Male editors are often known by name, and they are studied in the light of their impact on the socio-political landscape of their time. Historically, however, editorship (and women’s editorship in particular) was often anonymous or pseudonymous and even explicitly staged as performance.

Despite being written over 35 years ago, Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale (1985), set in a totalitarian New England where fertile women are kept prisoner in reproductive servitude, has been making headlines in 2017 due to the remarkable Hulu produced television series (screened in the UK on Channel Four). This symposium seeks to bring together diverse scholars for a day of discussion and debate.
