Lorraine K. Stock is soliciting abstracts for SEMA 2016 and Kalamazoo 2017. Please note the deadlines, as the SEMA one is soon. While the Kalamazoo deadline for abstracts is in September, Lorraine would appreciate abstracts sooner than later so that she can better plan for Kalamazoo 2017 as session proposals are due to the Congress in mid-June.

Assuming Gender

This special issue of Assuming Gender – an online, peer-reviewed academic journal from Cardiff University – seeks to explore the way gender is both presented and consumed through popular media and advertising. As Ann Herrmann points out in the article 'Shopping for Identities', commodities 'are characterised by their dual nature: material composition and symbolic meaning' (Herrmann 2002: 539). Consumer culture plays a significant role in constructing valid (and normative) identity categories with which consumers are encouraged to identify.

Seeking submissions that takes risks

The Sunflower Collective

The Sunflower Collective is now open for submissions. We celebrate the personal and the political - which we believe to be one and the same thing - in art.

We would like to mention at the outset that we are not interested in art that does not take risks. We do not mind if you have a degree but we are unlikely to be impressed by it. Nor do we care which journals have published your work before. All we are interested in is something that sings for itself without any props, something that grabs us by our throat and refuses to let go, something that shakes us out of our complacent stupor. Give us something hungry, not bellyful; something beat, if you get our drift.

Beat and Hungry Generation: When losing became hip

Cafe Dissensus

It was in the summer of 1999 when I first discovered Bob Dylan. I had heard his songs before and sang blowing in the wind as one of the prayer songs at my school's assembly. I probably did not have the wit and political learning to understand his lyrics back then. But later, when I studied Economics for my Masters, most of the Dylan's poems (songs) resonated inside my head. Then, through Dylan and his politics, I learned about this man who would spoil the rest of my life. A pop icon, crazy, almost bald, round-faced, ever chanting, dancing Allen Ginsberg: he who contributed significantly towards a change in perception of how the West looked at the East.
