[UPDATE] - Tufts Grad Conference - Radical Kinship

updated: 
Monday, February 23, 2015 - 10:03pm
Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference

RADICAL KINSHIP

Keynote: Omise'eke Tinsley, University of Texas at Austin
Conference Date: October 16, 2015

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign? When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and fatherhood?

Can we undomesticate kinship?

CFP: Academic Autobiographies

Intermezzo, a digital longform publication associated with Enculturation (http://www.enculturation.net) seeks submissions that address academic autobiography.

David Shumway once labeled the academic star system as one where autobiography marginalizes community in favor of the individual. Indeed, too few academics pen autobiographies unless they are so-called stars. Yet, all academics have a story to tell, one that merges the personal and the professional, the anecdotal and the political, the banal and the important. Academics should want to tell their stories.

[UPDATE] CFP: Toy Stories: The Toy as Hero

Tanya Jones, M.Ed & Chris Stoneley

Abstracts are being welcomed for a proposed collection examining the toy as hero. Toys, a celebrated part of childhood and often key figures in children's imaginative play, have a fantastic history of heroism in print and on film. Open to examinations of literature, comics, and film, the collection seeks to be a repository of original essays that analyze the roles toys play as protectors of the child(ren) they love, as heroes of their own stories, or as champions for the greater good.
Possible pieces for consideration:

updated: 
Saturday, February 21, 2015 - 5:13pm
D. A. Vakoch / California Institute of Integral Studies

Chapter proposals are invited for two new book projects, Ecofeminist Intersections and New Voices in Ecofeminist Activism, due by March 1, 2015. Both books explore the manifold ways that ecofeminism has been used across a range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, including but not limited to such fields as literary criticism, history, philosophy, religious studies, women's studies, anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, geography, and political science. Current doctoral students are especially encouraged to submit proposals for New Voices in Ecofeminist Activism, though all proposals will be considered for both books.

"Temporalities and Childhood" is a panel at the upcoming PAMLA 2015 conference, November 6-8, 2015, in Portland, USA.

The conference theme is "time and literature," and the panel will explore the various temporalities at play within the binary realms of childhood and adulthood with the aim of rethinking the teleology of 'growing up' from a temporal perspective.
