Feminist Challenges or Feminist Rhetorics?: Locations, Scholarships and Discourse, October 12-15, 2011

Sunday, May 16, 2010 - 5:40pm
full name / name of organization: 
The Coalition of Women Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition 8th Biennial Conference on Feminisms and Rhetorics
contact email: 

The 2011 Feminisms and Rhetorics conference, sponsored by the Coalition of Women Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition, will be hosted by Minnesota State University, Mankato October 12-15, 2011.

The conference committee is strongly interdisciplinary and therefore our theme seeks to recognize the spaces between disciplines and communities. The conference theme is meant to acknowledge the academic and socio-discursive spaces that feminisms, and rhetorics on or about feminisms, inhabit. Major political, religious and social leaders have recently discussed feminism, including the Dalai Lama, but the discussion seems to revolve around cultural or essentialized discourses of feminism.

While we have many accounts of reading and the emerging middle class in eighteenth-century England, our understanding of literacy for domestic servants is less clear. There is evidence that a range of men and women servants read for pleasure and self-improvement. Ironically, as the number of domestic servants who were able to read grew steadily, writers became aware of how the text can affect moral character.

Special Session on Religion & World Literature: Imago Dei: humanity contains the image of God. What does this idea look like in late 20th-century world literature (1970-2010)? How have globalization, technologization, secularization, post-secularization and other historical developments created new "images of God"? In what ways are modern "images of God" syncretic and in what ways are they traditional?

Send 1 page abstract by 31 May to Steve Pearson at aristophanes68@hotmail.com . Panelists will need to be SAMLA members by 15 August.

This special issue of SCAN: Journal of Media Arts Culture will explore new directions in fashion and design with regard to screen media, media convergence, cross media/creative collaborations and hybrid media and design aesthetics. While fashion media has been a stalwart of print media — books, magazines, and journals — in the digital era it represents a dynamic site of transformation. The new decade has witnessed a plethora of fashion films: satire (Bruno); bio-pics (Coco-Avant Chanel); documentary (The September Issue and Valentino: The Last Emperor) and fashion film cross-productions (Tom Ford's A Single Man).
