DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FEBRUARY 15TH
March 30-31, 2012
There are as many ways to conceptualize waste as there are ways in which waste permeates our world. It is ubiquitous; it figures into existence at every level. The history of waste is a history of equivocation, affirmation, disavowal, subsistence, persistence, inconvenience, differentiation, destruction, and decay. From the pragmatics of city sanitation to the logistics of disaster relief, from the remainders of mathematical equations to the emotive excesses of sentimental novels, the problem of "what remains" is central to the practice of academic inquiry.
The Departments of Anglo-American Philology I and II (Linguistics and Literature) wish to announce their 10th International Conference on Women's Studies, and invite you to submit papers on the topics listed below. The Organizing Committee for this conference, featuring national and international speakers, will publish texts selected after peer review for the Women's Studies collection, Vol. VIII.
Organizing Committee: Ana Antón-Pacheco, Isabel Durán, Noelia Hermando, Carmen Méndez, JoAnne Neff, Ana Laura Rodríguez
Themes (suggested, but not limited to):
In the coming issue we wish to focus on political geographies, as well as artistic interventions in, and reimaginations of, such geographies. The distinction between "place" and "space" is of particular interest, as it is fundamental not only to much art, but also to our global situation within neoliberal political geography. If time has come for us to reimagine this geography, as well as the interrelationships between, and definitions of "space" and "place", is it thinkable that art could be an ideal site for such reimagination?
