We live in them, move through them, occupy them, gentrify them, lay claim, then
reclaim them, tame them and maim them. We build them, enrich them, define
them, consign them. They can be first or final frontiers, domestic or foreign, and
they can even encapsulate moments—curvatures in time. Given that space is the
fundamental medium through which we live our lives, how do we define spaces,
and how do spaces define us?
Proposals invited for a guaranteed interdisciplinary panel that examines the intersections of race, age, and imagined futures--including those that are hopeful, destructive, or endangered. Please send 250-word proposal and 2-page c.v.
Panel sponsored by TC Age Studies.
Proposal deadline extended to March 18, 2019.
Seeking proposals for MLA 2020 convention: Proposal should investigate questions like what does #MeToo mean in non-Western countries? What does/can #MeToo do for non-Western women? How does #MeToo affect non-Western feminisms? How deos #MeToo translate into non-Western feminisms and cultures? What is #MeToo's place in postcolonial feminism? How can we encourage and engage with inclusive feminisms in the contemporary times? How does #MeToo co-exist with other geographical and religio-political beliefs?
Overall, I seek to discuss #MeToo in non-white and/or non-Western demographics and geographies.
