WSQ Special Issue: Ruin

full name / name of organization: 
Women's Studies Quarterly
contact email: 
wsqassociate@gmail.com

Call for Papers: Ruin
Guest Editors: Sarah Chinn and Rupal Oza

This issue of WSQ explores the multiple valences of ruin. While ruin clearly follows from disaster – from economic collapse to earthquakes to floods to volcanic eruptions to political and social unrest – it is also highly gendered: what is more easily ruined, after all, than a virtuous woman’s reputation?

Ruin can exist in the singular as a catastrophe and in the plural as an aesthetic, architectural, and historical pleasure. Mourning at a ruin can entail grief and also nostalgia for a world before disintegration and decay. Ruin suggests both temporal and spatial change, evoking a time and a place before as well as meditating on the here and now.

The specter of ruin generates strategies to forestall it: protectionism towards women and children, as well as other marginalized populations; economic bailouts to prevent the possibility of collapse; the closing down or limiting of borders; emergency warning systems; militarization and weaponization of society. And yet in this issue we also hope to pose a sometimes unthinkable question: what is so bad about ruin? Why do we fear the collapse of systems that might in fact be currently unworkable or even destructive?
