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.

CFP Other Worlds 3rd December 2012

Victorian Network and King's College London

Keynote Speakers: Dr John Holmes (Reading) and Professor Cora Kaplan (KCL)

From other lands to other planets to other dimensions, the nineteenth-century imagination thrived on the idea of 'elsewhere'. Alongside a developing rhetoric of geographically and intellectually bounded identities grew a fascination with alterity. Other Worlds seeks to explore the many ways in which Victorians looked beyond their quotidian spheres to imagined alternatives. We invite submissions which explore nineteenth-century modes of thought which position themselves as other, alternative, transcendent, secret or hidden.
