WOMEN IN JUDAISM: A MULTIDISCIPLINARY JOURNAL
IS URGENTLY SEEKING BOOK REVIEWERS FOR ITS 2011 ISSUES

About the Journal:
Women in Judaism: A Multidisciplinary Journal is published exclusively on the Internet as a forum for scholarly debate on gender-related issues in Judaism. It is particularly intended to promote critical analysis of gender inequalities within Jewish religion, culture, and society, both ancient and modern. The journal does not promote a fixed ideology, and welcomes a variety of approaches. The material may be cross-methodological or interdisciplinary.

After Exoticism: Graduate Student Caucus Seminar Panel (Abstracts due by September 15)

Friday, June 10, 2011 - 11:35am
ASECS (Sponsored by the Graduate Student Caucus)

The last twenty years have seen considerable interest in European global ambitions, as expressed in literature, art, history, etc. Scholars have become acutely aware of the ways in which representations of the "other" have helped advance the acceptance of imperial violence through orientalist, exoticism, and racialist expressions. Is there, however, an even richer story yet to be told? Some very recent work, for example, has suggested that Britain's own self-representations need to be reconsidered in light of the well-document power of China and the Ottoman Empire. Others have proposed ways in which literature and other forms of artistic production raise questions about, rather than reinforce imperialist impulses.

Viral Communications and Multimedia of the Eighteenth Century (Abstracts due by September 15)

Friday, June 10, 2011 - 11:31am
ASECS (Panel sponsored by Graduate Student Caucus)

This panel seeks to explore and understand the ways in which eighteenth-century media were produced, popularized, and preserved over time. Participants are asked to speculate on how and why certain texts, works, or histories endure in popular memory; such an examination might also clarify how and why certain media were more popular (or why certain texts were received more eagerly) than others. Some questions to consider: In what genres and forms were early viral communications presented? How did eighteenth-century media events affect contemporaneous consumer markets? What social conditions of the century allowed the proliferation of multimedia? How was media consumption in the eighteenth century like or unlike that today?

'Bodies have all the explanatory power of minds. Indeed, for feminist purposes, the focus on bodies, bodies in their concrete specificities, has the added bonus of inevitably raising the question of sexual difference that mind does not' – Elizabeth Grosz, Volatile Bodies: Towards a Corporeal Feminism (1994)

The Centre for Studies in Otherness

The Centre for Studies in Otherness invites papers for the e-journal issue Otherness: Essays and Studies 2.2.

Otherness: Essays and Studies, a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary e-journal, publishes research articles from and across different academic disciplines that examine, in as many ways as possible, the concepts of otherness and alterity. We particularly appreciate dynamic cross-disciplinary study. We publish two issues a year, alternating between special topic issues and general issues. This is a call for our general issue, forthcoming in Winter 2011.

'The foreigner is neither a race nor a nation ... we are our own foreigners, we are divided.'
