CFP: 2010 National PCA Fat Studies (St. Louis 3/31-4/3; December 1, 2009)

Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association

Fat Studies is becoming an interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary field of study that confronts and critiques cultural constraints against notions of "fatness" and "the fat body"; explores fat bodies as they live in, are shaped by, and remake the world; and creates paradigms for the development of fat acceptance or celebration within mass culture. Fat Studies uses body size as the starting part for a wide-ranging theorization and explication of how societies and cultures, past and present, have conceptualized all bodies and the political/cultural meanings ascribed to every body.

Greetings fellow scholars,

This is a CFP for the Fall 2009 Humanities Review, a literary journal for the St. John's University English Department in Queens, NY.

Our current theme focuses on the contemporary construction of American Identity.

We are also strongly requesting art submissions that best exemplify the theme. Limited color or mono-chrome are preferred. Please submit .TIFF FILES ONLY @ 800 dpi to the email address below.

Some matters to consider:

How has the social practice of culture formed / continue to form the ideological condition of "being American?" With that said, what does it mean to be an American in the 21st Century? What are the ontological pieces that plait our parsonage?
