Intersectional Gender Studies

full name / name of organization: 
Gender Forum

One of the most important tenets of third wave feminism is the acknowledgement of the fact that gender and gender relations do not exist in a vacuum, but that they are, in fact, only a part of an intricate web of oppression and privileging based on a myriad of factors. Other important factors influencing the level of oppression someone faces are, for example, race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or disability.

In this issue of Gender Forum, we would like to focus specifically on the ways in which gender issues are impacted by and connected to other axes of oppression.

Please submit abstracts or full articles (not exceeding 8,000 words) by April 30th.

[UPDATE] Eborakon Poetry Journal

The University of York

Final call for poems and artwork/curios: deadline 31st March 2014

Issue 1 featuring Paul Mills, Miriam Gamble, Peter Davidson and more

Eborakon is a biannual poetry magazine based at the University of York, publishing new writers alongside established poets. The name is derived from the Brythonic for York, meaning "place of the yews". We value writing that is rooted, both in the resonances of language as it has been used over the course of history, and in the evocation of place. We are nourished by the writers and critics who have preceded us, at the same time branching out to explore the future. Like the yew, for us poetry is mysterious and earthly, real matter that is potentially dangerous to savour.

The proliferation and popularity of life-writing in the last three decades has resulted in intense critical inquiry focusing on issues ranging from neurobiological sources of narrative identity to writing style and form, from ethical and legal concerns to narrative self-fashioning of the gendered and/or ethnic and racial self in life writing. While throughout the 1970s and 1980s gender provided an important lens through which to view life-writing, the early findings of the essential differences between texts written by women and men were soon invalidated.

As part of the Southeastern College Art Conference, this panel investigates the connection between materiality and digital media in the visual arts. Considering the prevalence of digital technology and the increasing rise in emergent software, the link between visual arts and its material embodiment is shifting in ways that are as unexpected as they are seductive. New media transcends the boundaries of physical embodiment in the evolution from analog to digital video, audio, and photography. Does digital media inhabit its own sense of material representation? What opportunities are being opened up by digitality in film, for instance, and what are the consequences that we should be considering?

SAMLA 2014 (Nov. 7 - 9 in Atlanta, GA)--Regional Writing: Advocate for or Adversary of Sustainability?

Harriet Beecher Stowe's _Palmetto Leaves_ (1873) sings the praises of that part of Florida near present-day Jacksonville, enticing friends and family to become fellow property owners. In it, Stowe celebrates a region, a location, and a lifestyle that she finds attractive. However, one Amazon reviewer questions if in publishing this work she may have unintentionally stimulated some of the tourism that has led to the proliferation of trinket shops, timeshare condominiums, and chain restaurants in Florida today. Is regional writing, then, good for a geography, celebrating its character and documenting its existence, or does it undermine the sustainability of unique and picturesque places by inviting outsiders to come and explore and exploit?

We seek panel members for the upcoming CCCC: March 18-21, 2015 in Tampa, Florida. The theme of the conference is "Risk and Reward," with a focus on how innovation is usually lauded for its successes, while we sometimes fail to see or acknowledge the risks (and failures) involved. Our panel seeks to explore this theme through a historical lens, looking at how a number of program administrators took risks.

At MLA 2014's "Beyond the Digital: Pattern Recognition and Interpretation" panel, the first question from the audience was, "Why are so many of these projects modernist? What is it about modernism that attracted the presenters?" Modernism, indeed, with its textually diverse and expanding canon, its relative immunity to copyright problems, its attention to formal qualities, and its following of academics dedicated to "making it new," has attracted perhaps a disproportionate amount of attention from digital humanists.
