(Post) Institutionalized Feminism: Defining the ?F-word?

Stuart Hall warned against the institutionalization of feminism saying
that once incorporated into the institution it would lose its vibrant
social and political activism. bell hooks ostensibly agrees with
Hall?s assessment in the 2004 film, ?Is Feminism Dead?? This workshop
seeks to interrogate the supposed ?death? of feminism in our cultural
moment, in which both Women?s Studies departments and ?I am not a
Feminist, but. . .? figure largely. We intend to strategizing
locations for political action from academic and social perspectives
and plot a course to reinvigorate the usefulness of The F-Word.

CFP: Practice Theory (7/1/07; journal issue)

Wednesday, April 4, 2007 - 8:53pm

SOUNDINGS: An Interdisciplinary Journal invites article submissions on the
notion of "practice" from across the disciplines. Contemporary social
theorists often invoke notions of practice and tradition to explain the
regularity and continuity of social behavior. Yet, these practices remain
mysterious, and many claim, lack a firm theoretical foundation. SOUNDINGS is
seeking articles which engage practice theory from an interdisciplinary
perspective with a special emphasis on the ways in which practice theory might
illuminate understandings of moral and political values.

Animals and Agency

Edited by Sarah E. McFarland and Ryan Hediger

Scholars increasingly consider the presence and function of animals in
literature, film, art, and philosophy, while hugely popular documentary
films like _March of the Penguins_ and _Grizzly Man_ and a significant
number of animated films show this interest in film and popular culture
as well. Some scholars focus on how representations of "the animal" as
an "other" help to construct the human, whereas others examine the
relationships between humans and other animals and how human and animal
subjectivity are articulated.
