Addressing the conference theme of "Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives," this panel will explore the lives and work of women writers and activists whose socio-political vision found expression both in prose and the plastic arts. At the turn of the century, several important female-centered Arts & Crafts communities formed in Deerfield, MA; Chicago; and New York; in addition to smaller communities throughout the country. We welcome papers that focus on well-known figures in this movement such as Jane Addams and Ellen Gates Starr as well as lesser-known figures like Madeline Yale Wynne and Gertrude Christian Fosdick (among many others). How did this largely female-centered American movement depart from its roots in Ruskinian thought?

This special issue of TEXT reflects and builds on Australia Queer, a pioneering collection of queer writing. The 1990s saw the rise of queer theory and politics. Annamarie Jagose has described queer 'as an umbrella term for a coalition of culturally marginal sexual self-identifications and … a nascent theoretical model which has developed out of more traditional lesbian and gay studies' (1996: 1).
In Australia, the arrival of queer was heralded by the work of writers such as Christos Tsiolkas, Dean Kiley and Fiona McGregor; the activism of groups such as the Australian chapter of ActUp; and scholarly work which includes journals such as Critical InQueeries (1995-98) and a 1996 Special Edition of Meanjin, entitled 'Australia Queer'.
Call for panelists: "New Ways to Conceptualize Diasporic and Migrant Subjectivities: Re-Departing to Re-Arrive"
Proposed Panel for the Annual MELUS Conference 2015 Athens, GA, April 9 – 12, 2015
In When the Moon Waxes Red: Representation, Gender, and Cultural Politics (1991), feminist, post-colonial theorist Trinh T. Minh-ha presents the identities of diasporic peoples as engaged in a process of re-departure. Revisiting suppressed or denied heritages, she argues, does not necessarily force hyphenated people to choose between singularity and plurality. On the contrary, it offers them an opportunity to "start again with different re-departures, different pauses, different arrivals" (14).

Recent scholarship has laid much emphasis on how William Shakespeare's plays engaged directly with what is now being described as the "Global Renaissance". From Titus Andronicus to The Tempest, his plays seem deeply interested in staging and exploring racialized others and moments of contact. At the same time, Shakespeare as part of the British literary canon, played a vital role in the colonial machinery; and later became an indispensable part of postcolonial resistance.

The debate about the function of language is ancient: there are those who believe that language can partially construct reality, and there are those who believe that language is primarily a set of labels for objects. There are also those who believe that language can act on people; this is a magical view of language. And in fairytales, legends, and myths, language is capable of action e.g., magic passwords, spells, incantations, etc.
