Talking about different political slogans that she has written for different eras, namely “Cyborgs for Earthly Survival” during Reagan’s era, “Run fast Bite Hard” for father Bush’s era and “Shut up and Train” for George W. Bush’s presidency , Donna Haraway declares that today her slogan is “Stay with the Trouble!” (137) Amidst the very real and imminent threats of environmental disasters, rise of racism, and an expanding precarity, it is in fact very hard to stay with the trouble rather than going elsewhere to save ourselves.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Since the biopolitical turn, scholars across disciplines have attempted to make sense of the encounter between life (bios) and politics. This attention paid to the topic of biopolitics shows a cultural ethos that revolves around an awareness of power connected to the body. This roundtable invites papers that analyze how literature engages with biopolitics, particularly in the conceptualizations and depictions of the body in relation to power in 20th- and 21st-century literature. Roundtable participants are encouraged to submit abstracts that engage with the following questions: “How is life (and the body) culturally inscribed with meaning and definition,” and further, “What is a consequence of that inscription?”

Monday, September 30, 2019

Although much has changed in the academy in recent decades, many struggles related to gender and the “traditional notions” of the roles women fulfill and the roles men fulfill in the academy have remained strikingly rigid, to the detriment of individuals as well as to the collective institution. Women still bear a service burden disproportionate to that of their male colleagues. Women in the academy still struggle with childbearing and child rearing choices that men in the academy do not face in the same way. Women still face sexism and sexual harassment that their male counterparts escape. For women of color, the burdens are magnified.
