Material culture assumes significance of massive proportions in cultures across the globe by virtue of its ability to trace everyday life and its nuances through the signifying metaphor of objects. The historical trajectories of nations, cultures and communities function in tandem with that of the prevailing material culture(s) in as much as transformations in the latter sphere inevitably represent ruptures or shifts in the former. The stories that objects recount surpass the boundaries of time and space as they transcend both. They function as signifying metaphors, carrying multiple significations of lives lived through and with them.

Call For Submissions

Dismantling Inequality through Dialogues of Conscience

Humanity, wildlife and the environment have all been negatively impacted by polarizing inequalities. Despite this, courageous individuals and resistance movements have and continue to expose these inequalities and enact change in the face of tremendous opposition. We are interested in submissions that explore gender, racial, sexual, religious, socio-economic and environmental inequalities represented in literature, film as well as other mediums and the changes that have occurred through dialogues inside and outside of the classroom about various forms of inequality.

Topics of interest may include but are not limited to:

Following on from the success of our 2016 conference we are looking for submissions for our next journal. Papers are invited to engage with the theme of the conference, Revolutionary Genders. We are also accepting feminist or gender studies book reviews. The books must have been published since November 2016.

This issue will focus on how the quest for equality and justice always involves change. This change, this revolution can be slow, living in the shadows, waiting for the moment to strike. Or it can be loud, visible and quick. Either way the landscape is changed.
