Dear colleagues,
The Feminist Press at CUNY [feministpress.org] is excited to announce the second book in their book club program! This is an opportunity for groups of students to gather at university Women's Centers (or similar student groups, or classes) for engaging and exciting conversations with leading feminist thinkers and activists. Last year, we launched this program with the anthology The Feminist Porn Book, and hosted a video conference discussion group with editor, contributor, and feminist pornographer Tristan Taormino. Tristan took students' questions live via Skype and led a discussion based on their interest in the book.

UPDATE - 25th Annual British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference - February 26-27, 2016 - Savannah GA

BCPCS Conference

The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992, is the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States. It encompasses colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.

We welcome a variety of approaches and viewpoints, and the generation of wide-ranging, productive debates. Thus we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and/or cross-cultural panel proposals.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Speaking Her Mind: Canadian Women and Public Presence
20-22 October 2016
University of Calgary

How are women engaging with public discussion and debate in Canada?
Speaking Her Mind: Canadian Women and Public Presence is the follow-up conference to Discourse and Dynamics: Canadian Women as Public Intellectuals, which took place at Mount Allison University in October 2014 (see discoursedynamics.ca). As Discourse and Dynamics made clear, "public intellectual" remains an unsatisfactory term for many women who have contributed to and continue to engage in public discussion and debate in Canada. Speaking Her Mind aims to take that investigation to the next level.
