The international refereed journal Australian Feminist Studies (Routledge/Taylor & Francis) is seeking contributions for a 2018 special themed issue on FASHION to be edited by Maryanne Dever and Lisa Adkins with guest co-editor Ilya Parkins. 

We are keenly interested in receiving articles that demonstrate how intersectional, feminist theoretical tools support new analyses of fashion, more than articles simply focusing on the relationship between feminism and fashion.

Sound has always been there. However, its ephemeral condition has prevented us from critically listening to the past and even from thinking about our everyday sonic experiences. Moreover, the sonic materialization of the Logos —voice—  has been systematically relegated to a second level, even when orality was present in the production of any kind of text.

The 49th NeMLA Annual Convention
April 12-15, 2018 - Pittsburgh, PA

As capital flows freely across national borders, the sovereign state demarcates strict boundaries for people. Capitalism forges global connections with international solidarity organized around wealth. Yet as Foucault has argued, intranational spaces are increasingly heavily policed in the name of homeland security, giving rise to the security state and technologies of surveillance.

Works of literature can be viewed from many angles or schools of critical thought and yield "meaning" dependent on through what school you choose to critique a text. Marjorie Garber closes her book The Use and Abuse of Literature stating

Literary interpretation, like literature, does not seek answers or closure. A multiplicity of persuasive and well-argued "meanings" does not mean the death or loss of meaning, but rather the living presence of the literary work in culture, society, and the individual creative imagination. To say that closure is impossible is to acknowledge the richness and fecundity of both the reading and the writing process.
