Bodies on the Line: Intersections between Gender and Dis|ability

Monday, July 10, 2017 - 7:43am
gender forum: An Internet Journal for Gender Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 15, 2018

For a long time the relationship between gender and dis|ability has been viewed in a subtractive or additive fashion, often pointing to the emasculation of men or double discrimination against women. The portrayal of dis|ability annihilating gender and exacerbating systems of oppression can be found in mainstream media and disciplinary scholarship alike. While identity is commonly explored through the axes of race, class, and gender, arguments have been put forward to include the category of the body or dis|ability (Smith & Hutchison 2006, Winker & Degele 2009, Walgenbach 2007).

Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 29, 2018

To mark the 200th anniversary, in 2018, of Mary Shelley’s novel, we invite articles for a special issue, examining the impact of Shelley’s creation on the development of sf. Following Brian Aldiss’ critical intervention in Billion Year Spree (1973), this is a relationship that has often been explored, so we would like to encourage contributions that investigate the afterlives of Shelley’s novel within the sf genre in new and innovative ways. Topics may include (but are not confined to) the following areas:
