________
From lived realities to theoretical discourses, issues of mobility are at the core of many contemporary debates both within North America and globally. (Im)mobility transcends disciplinary boundaries and topics, generating disparate perspectives surrounding movements of people, capital and ideas. Migration, in particular, has become the focus of much recent analytical attention. As movements of people continue to gain focus, practices of immobility and exclusion are underscored.

Rag Queen Periodical

Call for submissions:
"Wait, I'm not allowed in the feminist club?"
Many women feel completely left out of the feminist movement. Intersectional feminism hopes to tackle this very issue.
We are interested in narratives which portray the feelings of separation or marginalization from feminism due to lack of representation within the feminist movement.
Some topics to consider:
• Ableism
• "Rich, white feminism"
• Postcolonialism
• Transfeminism

Who Can Submit:
You can, that's who! We accept poetry, non-fiction prose, and fiction prose from all genders and sexes as long as they advocate for women.

EXTENDED DEADLINE 15 JANUARY The Poetics of Place: Performing Selves In and Beyond Cities

13th Annual Université de Montréal English Graduate Conference

In The Production of Space, Henri Lefebvre describes the city as "a production and reproduction of human beings by human beings." This conference aims to explore the poetics of (non)urban spaces and the city as a catalyst for self-making and -unmaking in the various localized manifestations of the self in literature and art. We envision metropolitan, (post)industrial, rural, etc. spaces as socially inflected images with the performative self at the core of their becoming.
