Dr. Monique Ferrell & Dr. Julian Williams - New York City College of Technology, City University of New York

The Editors are seeking essays that examine the ways that women from around the world have served as the oppressive hand in the lives of other women. In this new feminist theory text entitled Her Own Worst Enemy: The Eternal Internal Gender Wars of Our Sisters, the book's ultimate goal is to discuss, explain, and explore the following areas of concern: how women were prevented from being helpful to their sisters; how they may have been encouraged to dismiss woman-centered calls for equality, political clout, or sexual power; or when and how some women were actually forced to turn their backs on their sisters as a means of protecting themselves and what little power they actually possessed.

But in the midst of the long row there hangs a canvas which differs from the others. . . . on this one plate no name is inscribed, and the linen within the frame is snow-white from corner to corner, a blank page.

updated: 
Tuesday, October 16, 2012 - 6:52pm
University of Canberra

Extended deadline for proposals - 9 November 2012

This Symposium will explore practices of authorship, creativity and cultural innovation, and how they intersect with law. Do law and policy effectively protect and meet the changing needs of authors and other creative practitioners? How does law itself frame authorship and cultural practice? How has this changed over time, and what lessons are there for the future?

Criterion Forum: Haunted Subjects

updated: 
Tuesday, October 16, 2012 - 4:20pm
Brigham Young University

For its 2013 issue, Criterion: A Journal of Literary Criticism anticipates reserving space for up to four essays which explore issues, objects, or persons which, though originating from the repressed past, continue to make themselves "forcibly felt in the present." To provoke thoughts on this topic, Dr. Jayne Elizabeth Lewis, Professor of English at the University of California, Irvine, has provided the following prompt titled "Haunted Subjects." Authors should not attempt to address all of the issues raised by Dr. Lewis; rather, Criterion hopes this prompt will serve as a springboard for creative and well-focused essays on relevant issues and texts.

Essays may be submitted on a year-round basis, but Criterion is currently soliciting submissions for its 2013 issue, scheduled for publication in April of 2013. The submission deadline for the 2013 issue is 18 January 2013.
