CFP: [Gender Studies] NWSA 2008: The Outsider Within: Twenty Years Later

updated: 
Wednesday, October 31, 2007 - 8:54pm
Caresse John

I am in need of presenters (2-4) on Patricia Hill Collins's concept of
the outsider within. Particularly, this panel proposes to examine
Collins’s concept and its various and potential applications. Collins
discusses the ways in which this outsider within view can enrich
sociological facts and theories; however, her concept can be applied to
many women in many academic and cultural spaces.

If you have a paper or an idea for a paper in which you apply the
outsider within concept in a way other than the way Collins's envisioned,
I would love to hear from you.

Please note: this panel has not been accepted by NWSA, but I have
submitted a proposal for it.

A VONNEGUT RETROSPECTIVE

Since Kurt Vonnegut’s death in April of 2007, the popular media has made numerous tributes
and launched a few attacks, most notably Fox News’ vituperative April 16, 2007 obituary. It
seems time for a more scholarly retrospective on Vonnegut’s life and work. This panel will
explore Vonnegut’s influence on contemporary literature as well as new directions for Vonnegut
criticism in the 21st Century. Papers may address, but are not limited to, the following topics:
