ISSUE 3: SEX! Conceptions of bodies, sexuality, and desire have been rallying points for feminist activism, research, and advocacy in different historical moments. Looking back to the 1970s, advocates of the Canadian women's movement made courageous and influential efforts to secure safe access to abortion clinics, to establish supportive women's shelters and rape crisis centres, and to better understand women's reproductive and sexual health. The effects of this movement on Canadian society are undeniable. Take, for example, the Abortion Caravan (1969-70), a national feminist protest that mobilized over 500 activists from all over the country to demand that the government amend its abortion policy.

The purpose of the conference is to present the latest research on people, places and events that are neither well known to the general public, nor featured or debated in the mainstream books or conferences on the Reformation, but which had a local impact on the emergence and development of the Reformation in Eastern Europe, in the fields of religion, politics, social life, culture, and economics.

The conference aims to give a voice, at least to some of the people and events that shaped Eastern Europe throughout the Reformation, and who influenced the ideological development of Europe since that time up to the present day. The main question is: who are the people and which are the events that mattered, but no one knows about?

[UPDATE] Toward an Ecosomatic Paradigm: Disability and the Environment in American Literature; August 1, 2014

full name / name of organization: 
Matthew J.C. Cella, PhD [Edited Collection]
contact email: 

I seek contributors to an edited collection focused on the intersection between disability studies and literary ecology, particularly as it plays out in American literature and culture. More specifically, the collection will investigate the role that literary ecology plays in upholding what might be called the ecosomatic paradigm. As a theoretical framework, the ecosomatic paradigm underscores the dynamic and inter-relational (and thereby ecological) process wherein human mind-bodies interface with the places, both built and wild, they inhabit. That is, the ecosomatic paradigm proceeds from the assumption that nature and culture interact in an ongoing, dialectical relationship that has implications for both the human subject and the natural world.

contact email: 

This panel proposes to examine the work of writers who explore environmental or health hardships experienced by communities in African countries. Papers are encouraged to engage with the complexities of writing on these topics: for example, the difficulty of representing lived realities of disaster or disease without reinforcing the stereotype of Africa as a space of continual crisis or the challenge of crafting an aesthetic that can adequately contain suffering and the will to endure. By July 15, 2014, please submit a 300-word abstract and A/V requirements to Renée Schatteman, Georgia State University, at schatteman@gsu.edu.

Joss Whedon's Comics (abstract Aug 31)

With dozens of nonfiction books on Joss Whedon's works from Buffy to Avengers, one critical area has been ignored: Whedon's comics. In fact, he's written several series for Marvel and DC, along with independents and the many issues of Angel, Buffy, and Serenity comics for IDW and Dark Horse. While a few isolated essays have tackled Buffy season eight or Whedon's X-Men run, there is no anthology devoted to only Whedon comics. Now that's about to change.

Indo-British Anthology of New Fiction, 2014: Call for Submissions

Radical fiction or 'New Fiction' (NF) is a challenger that is here to break tradition. The passé is no longer acceptable in the Anthology, a book of new writing in English that aims to promote new modes of thinking, seeing and expression.

NF is all about innovation in writing, fiction written in a new way, challenging our preconceptions. It is 'dangerous' stuff composed by mobile, imaginative minds across a fast-shrinking globe. We are looking for short stories in all their manifestations, preferably composed in English, from Indian or British writers.

Identities in Consultation: Diversity in the South and Beyond

What does it mean to be "southern" in a country where regionalism is becoming less important to identity and more important as a commodity? What does it mean to be a regional writing center when regionalism is not relative to the populations we service? How do we begin to understand emerging educational communities and their developing identities, which include new education standards, shifts in demographics, online instruction, and multimodal writing prompts that move students away from traditional writing tasks? What is the evolving function of a writing center to a generation of students who have spent their lives reading and blogging with their peers throughout the world?
