[UPDATE] Boundaries and Intersections: Space, Time, Discipline (MadLit) – Proposals by 1/1/2016; Conference 2/25/16-2/27/16

Thursday, December 17, 2015 - 11:11am
UW-Madison MadLit Graduate Student Conference

***Submission deadline extended to 1/1/16***
Boundaries and intersections -- two contrasting metaphors and yet not quite a binary. On the one hand, these words spatially remind us of Venn diagrams: two bound circles with a space of intersection where they overlap. On the other hand, intersections can be places of traffic, movement over time, streams of cars or pedestrians crossing boundaries. Spatial overlap or temporal crossing--the stability of categories or their rupture. The humanities are constantly defined and redefined by the churning of boundaries and intersections.

"Flows and Undercurrents: Dimensions of (Im)mobility in North America", June 2-4, 2016 [Deadline: February 7, 2016]

Wednesday, December 16, 2015 - 3:23pm
Graduate School of North American Studies, Freie Universität Berlin

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.

"Wait, I'm not allowed in the feminist club?"

Wednesday, December 16, 2015 - 1:50pm
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.
