CFP: Race and Kids Culture (7/1/05; journal issue)

Thursday, May 19, 2005 - 3:23pm

Essays are sought for a special issue of Cultural Studies<=>Critical
Metholodologies on Race and Kids Culture. The special issue will speak to
a set of shared concerns. As corporations increasingly structure and media
almost entirely saturate the lives of children, scholars and social
critics have rightly begun to explore the articulations of power, culture,
and identity. Inspired particularly by the emergent field of cultural
studies and informed by the post-marxist, feminist, and post-structural
frameworks, they have interpreted the ways in which toys, games, movies,
television, music, and literature educate, imprint, and otherwise
interpolate them to embrace normative values and institutions.

CFP: Violence Among Women (7/1/05; e-journal)

Monday, May 16, 2005 - 3:43pm
Thomas Philbeck

Submission Deadline : July 1st
Publication decisions will be made by September 1st
In many modern and contemporary narrative acts of psychological and physical violence among women, violence has been interpreted and presented in terms of Freudian envy, spaces for male pleasure, negotiating conflicts in a male world, biological determinism (the over protective mother), or as non-existent, i.e. created by males (women are peacemakers and nurturers, neither inherently violent nor evil) etc.

Texas Issue

The Texas Observer calls Texas "the strangest state in the Union." It
is also in many ways America's most significant state: for better or
worse the Texas models for government, business, religion, and education
have dominated the nation in recent years. Why? Where did all
this.this.strangeness.weirdness.power.come from? While it may appear
from a distance that Texas is a monolithic entity, it is not; rather, it
is a collection of constantly interacting and often warring individuals,
cultures, and geographies. What the are the stories, the poems, the
songs that live and lurk beneath the surface of Texas?
