Fresh on the heels of our first issue of 'Merica Magazine we're asking for new submissions we hope to publish weekly on a rolling basis. 'Merica Magazine is a public humanities periodical committed to publishing work that examines American culture and the idea of "America" with a critical eye. Potential writers are asked to familiarize themselves with our style at mericamagazine.org. Queries, pitches, and submissions can be directed to email@example.com.
Proposals are now being accepted for the conference's newly established subject area, Mothers, Motherhood, and Mothering in Popular Culture. In this inaugural year, we are looking for papers that address mothers, motherhood, and/or mothering as seen within popular culture, such as through:
representations of mothers, motherhood, and/or mothering including pregnancy, comparison to fathers,
experiences of mothers, motherhood, and/or mothering and variances by race/ethnicity, genders, class, age, etc.
theories related to mothers, motherhood, and/or mothering,
studies about/with mothers, and
pedagogical applications of research/writing relating to the topic.
Please note our updated deadline for abstracts! Abstracts will be accepted until October 15, 2015.

Call for papers
There is a particular instability proper to the English-speaking world in which mutability seems to be of the essence, as when Shakespeare alternated sea and land in Sonnet 64:
When I have seen the hungry ocean gain
Advantage on the kingdom of the shore,
And the firm soil win of the wat'ry main,
Increasing store with loss, and loss with store;
When I have seen such interchange of state,
Or state itself confounded to decay
The point is also made in a more explicitly political mode by Caliban in The Tempest, suggesting that the absolute of sovereignty is, in fact, contingent, reversible:
