deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 4, 2016

The editors of a planned, interdisciplinary volume on Shusaku Endo's last novel, Deep River, are looking for one final chapter contribution.

Set in 1984, Endo's novel features multiple references to the Hindu-Sikh conflict of the time, and we are inviting scholars to consider writing a chapter on the novel in relation to Sikhism, Hinduism, Indian secularism, and/or religion and violence.

Final essays (7000 words, inclusive of endnotes) are due in late May 2017.

Since this is the final piece in our planned anthology's puzzle, interested contributors should send an email, by 11/4/2016, to d.middleton2@tcu.edu, containing:

Eve’s Sinful Bite: Foodscapes in Italian Women’s Writing, Culture and Society

Edited Volume

Thursday, March 30, 2017

The multifaceted relationship between women and food in Western culture is captured by the Christian myth of the Fall narrated in Genesis with the episode of Eve and the apple. Eve’s sinful bite represents a key symbolic meeting between women and food in a long list of metaphorical meanings associated with the act of eating and ideas of femininity in the collective imaginary. Food and eating-related-activities, such as cooking and serving meals for the family, have often been seen as signifiers of something else in women’s lives: lust, affection, desire for emotional shelter and expression of frustration, to mention only a few of the nuances associated with food consumption.

Call for Papers: ‘Consuming Gender’

 

This special issue of Assuming Gender – an online, peer-reviewed academic journal from Cardiff University – seeks to explore the way gender is both presented and consumed through popular media and advertising. As Ann Herrmann points out in the article ‘Shopping for Identities’, commodities ‘are characterised by their dual nature: material composition and symbolic meaning’ (Herrmann 2002: 539). Consumer culture plays a significant role in constructing valid (and normative) identity categories with which consumers are encouraged to identify.
