These days the word "craft" gets attached to a lot—from cocktails to crochet, 3D printing to upcycled t-shirts, handmade paper to handmade pickles. And this trend only appears to be growing as craft is closely connected to the DIY movement: a wide-ranging, ever-expanding, and sometimes controversial field of work and play.

Panel CFP: An Itty Bitty on the Titty: Breasts in Popular, Textual, Visual, and Medical Cultures - 30 May-2 June 2015

From the monomastic Amazon women of medieval and early modern culture to Dolly Parton's hope that people "look underneath the breasts at the heart," from the Madonna Lactans of Catholic iconography to representations of the cancerous breast, this panel examines breasts in all their shapes and sizes. The breast, so often considered to be indexical of femininity, provides a physical space through which more abstract values can be explained. Indeed, the breast confirms for us what sexual difference should look like, and how it should operate. This panel discusses the ways in which the breast both conforms to and disrupts expectations for gendered identity (or other socially constructed markers), and proposals that cover any historical period are welcome.
