‘Art and Conflict: Investigating Cross-Disciplinary Methodologies’
Workshop 25 – 26 June 2018

In light of the FIFA world cup 2018 in Russia, an upcoming issue of gender forum approaches the question of gender and sports from a multi- and interdisciplinary angle. With the common division into men’s and women’s sports, athleticism appears as an inherently gendered occupation. Yet even outside the pitch itself, these implications reign supreme.
At their most basic level, sporting events are about numbers: wins and losses, percentages and points, shots and saves, clocks and countdowns. However, when it comes to sports narratives—the expert commentary before, during and after, the athlete interviews and press conferences, the fan debates around a television or in online forums, etc.—the stories quickly leave the realm of analytics and enter into mythos. The narratives we tell make sports so compelling. We shape athletes into heroes or scapegoats, Davids or Goliaths. We mold the sporting event into a comeback tale or a fall from grace. In other words, we make sports dramatic.

Call for Papers, Women's Studies Special Issue: "Futures of Feminist Science Studies"
This special issue of Women's Studies: an interdisciplinary journal invites submissions that work at the intersections of science studies, feminism, and cultural studies. We are especially interested in work that explores the possibilities that emerge from feminist science studies, both as a critique science’s “culture of no culture” and as a pedagogical intervention relevant to the training of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies students. Submissions for this issue should fall into one of two broad categories: "Gender, Science, and the Practice of Culture" and "Feminist Science Studies in the University Classroom."
