In 1974, at a time when gender studies were investing several disciplines and departments of American colleges and universities, Sandra L. Bem, a researcher in social psychology, elaborated the Bem Sex Role Inventory (B.S.R.I). Made up of 20 items, the inventory invited participants to determine the degree to which they embraced and identified with the social and cultural gender roles as they had been framed in the 1970s American society. Out of her research, Sandra Bem developed the concept of psychological androgyny and posited that an individual's psychological balance was reached by the latter's capacity to find an intermediary position between the "masculine" and the "feminine".

Not simply a blank, [image here] functions as a placeholder—a formatted but unpopulated space. A page under construction, a refusal to show or be shown, an empty frame. Marking what is indicated but not given, [image here] simultaneously exposes and withdraws from the logic of representation.

This conference seeks to elaborate the turn to non-representation in recent philosophy, media theory, art, and related fields. We invite contributions that trace non-representational strategies––in theory and practice––across history, media, and disciplines.

'Revision, Revival, Rediscovery'... 'Re' words in British Women's Writing between 1930 and 1960
A One-day Conference at University of Hull June 24th. 2016
Dr. Jane Thomas and Sue Kennedy
Department of English
The period of women's literary history between 1930 and 1960 is beginning to receive the closer attention of literary scholars, feminists and cultural historians. It is a period characterised in many ways by the prefix 're'; emblematic of the persistent impulse for re-evaluation of women's writing that occupies an uncertain, liminal place in relation to the canon.

Katherine Mansfield and Russia -- book series -- Deadline August 31 2016

updated: 
Tuesday, January 5, 2016 - 8:34am
Katherine Mansfield Society

Katherine Mansfield's passion for Russian literature and culture is well known. Anton Chekhov was not just her most significant literary influence, he was a mythological presence with whom she felt a close bond. Indeed, this emotional bond became even stronger when she discovered the two of them shared not just similar artistic sensibilities but also the same deadly disease – tuberculosis. While Chekhov reigned supreme in Mansfield's world, several other Russian writers, and Russia in general, fascinated her for most of her adult life. This volume seeks essay submissions that engage with all aspects of Mansfield's response to Russian literature, culture and history, as well as to the Russians she met in England and France.

[UPDATE] RACE, GENDER AND SEXUALITY IN THE WALKING DEAD FRANCHISE

Tuesday, January 5, 2016 - 8:24am
Dawn Keetley and Elizabeth Erwin

The Walking Dead franchise has become a popular culture juggernaut that shows no signs of slowing down. Yet, despite its soaring popularity, there has been a longstanding critique that the franchise, in both its comic book and television incarnations, advocates an explicitly patriarchal and predominantly white world order. Zombie narratives have shown themselves to be uniquely qualified to deconstruct the many illusions (and injustices) of our social order, so why have so many felt that The Walking Dead has only hardened the conventional boundaries of race, gender, and sexuality?
