Seeking proposals for MLA 2020 convention: Proposal should investigate questions like what does #MeToo mean in non-Western countries? What does/can #MeToo do for non-Western women? How does #MeToo affect non-Western feminisms? How deos #MeToo translate into non-Western feminisms and cultures? What is #MeToo's place in postcolonial feminism? How can we encourage and engage with inclusive feminisms in the contemporary times? How does #MeToo co-exist with other geographical and religio-political beliefs?

Overall, I seek to discuss #MeToo in non-white and/or non-Western demographics and geographies.

The Eighth Annual WSU Visual Culture Symposium seeks to explore the visual logics of feminist art, theory, and practice, in all their complexity and multiplicity, and to place such logics in the current political moment. From the #MeToo-movement to the Women’s March, feminist activism has drawn national attention in recent years. In some respects, such activism has produced tangible gains: the 116th House of Representatives is the most racially diverse and counts the largest number of women in US history.

In her 1977 essay “Toward a Black Feminist Criticism,” Barbara Smith says, “The use of Black women’s language and cultural experience in books by Black women about Black women results in a miraculously rich coalescing of form and content and also takes their writing far beyond the confines of white/male literary structures.” Smith uses “black women’s language” to make the case that a black feminist framework would have much in common with a rapidly expanding black women’s literary tradition. An unending source for “cultural manifestations” of black womanhood, literature from black women has a critical value outside of white/male literary structures.
