Patriarchy, as defined by bell hooks, is a social disease. Hegemonic masculinity does not allow men to express their emotions, except through anger, violence and sex. Consequently, all who are in a relationship with men (parents, children, spouses, lovers, siblings, colleagues and friends) are likely to suffer from the manifestations of hegemonic masculine behavior, including the men themselves who must constantly repress their feelings.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 15, 2019

We seek projects pertaining to health, sickness, and everything in between and at the extremes of these conditions that span and involve the Spanish-speaking and Lusophone worlds. Drawing on a variety of approaches, including but not limited to, biopolitics, necropolitics, spirituality and religion, queer studies, the history of medicine and epidemics, and affect theory, we invite you to consider the figure of the (g)host, regardless of your period of interest. Questions about the limits of the bodily and conceptualizations of liminality as well as interdisciplinary papers are of particular interest.

“Environment at the Margins” and Global Anglophone/Postcolonial African Novels

updated: 
Monday, October 29, 2018 - 10:50am
Oklahoma State University
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 15, 2018

This panel, which has been accepted for the 2019 ASLE biennial conference, seeks to respond to the following questions, among others: How do contemporary African novels inform us about the cultural formations and emerging global realities in the post-1960 world and help us reimagine African environments at the margins? In what ways postcolonial ecocritical engagements with African fictional narratives are crucial to open up the imaginative horizon of non-Western environmental epistemologies and ontologies? Why is the novel form significant in invoking both the place-based and the planetary sense of environmental imagination?
