CFP MSA 17, November 19-22, 2015. Boston, MA. Westin, Copley Place

The theme for MSA's 17th annual convention is revolution. The articulation of revolution is of particular interest – manners of expression and mediums of the propagation of "revolution" in any form offer insight and new avenues into the modern era. This CFP seeks proposals that explore revolutionary rhetoric in the early twentieth century: gender, political, scientific, socio-cultural, racial, artistic, print/media, and literary. Interdisciplinary approaches strongly encouraged. Please send proposal and 3 sentence bio to heather.lusty@unlv.edu by April 15th, 2015.

Essays for Edited Collection - "New Maternalisms": Tales of Motherwork

Tuesday, December 9, 2014 - 12:28pm
Demeter Press

Much research on motherhood has been published in the past eighteen years (e.g. Ruddick, 1995; O'Reilly, 2007; Kinser, 2008 & 2010; Klein & Chernick, 2011; Crittenden, 2010), suggesting an increased interest in and visibility and acknowledgement of feminism and the topic of motherhood. The literature is concerned with the invisibility of mothers and the labor of caregiving or "motherwork." Specifically, contemporary literature on motherhood is embedded in post-colonial and transnational scholarship in which motherhood scholars like Ruddick, Klein, and O'Reilly articulate "a new economy of collective caregiving and mutual exchange" (Klein, 2012). The works also reflect the changing structure of the family (e.g.

'When […] does occupation become possession? Who has a right to occupy what space? Who must work for whom? What happens in our society to those who can't—or simply won't—work? What obligations do we have to those who prefer not to fit into the system, or run on the hamster's wheel?' Jonathan D. Greenberg.

Fractious Modernities: The (dis)Contents of the Now (24-26 February, 2015)

Centre for Advanced Study in English, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India

The fractured, multiple modernities that constitute our world are increasingly in conflict with each other. It is crucial that we explore the ways in which the commonalities shared by many modern societies are shot through with differences in the ways societies understand themselves, their relationships with each other and with the past. Market forces, 'civil society', media, state and transnational apparatuses interact within historically specific milieus shaped by nationhood, peoplehood, religion, ethnicity, race, caste, class and indigeneity to create complex trajectories of modernity.
