We welcome original, unpublished research papers related to the concept of “motherhood” with specific focus on mothers who have transgressed or subverted the societal norms. Topics for papers may include the various aspects of motherhood but are not limited to:-

Dismantling Inequality through Dialogues of Conscience
Humanity, wildlife and the environment have all been negatively impacted by polarizing inequalities. Despite this, courageous individuals and resistance movements have and continue to expose these inequalities and enact change in the face of tremendous opposition. We are interested in submissions that explore gender, racial, sexual, religious, socio-economic and environmental inequalities represented in literature, film as well as other mediums and the changes that have occurred through dialogues inside and outside of the classroom about various forms of inequality.
Topics of interest may include but are not limited to:

In 1995, Star Trek: Voyager launched in a way very different from its predecessor series. Voyager took place thousands of light years from the Federation, and it contained a multi-ethnic crew with a female captain. Voyager, in a sense, encapsulated the American zeitgeist of the 1990s when major demographic changes were transforming the population of America, and the post-Cold War era left us wondering what strategic alliances would mean moving forward. The series challenged the nature of the American mindset at the time.

50 Years + - The Age of New French Theory (1966-1970)
Editor: Laurent Milesi (Cardiff University)
The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.
