Much attention has been given to recent American studies showing a dramatic increase in the numbers of those who distance themselves from religious affiliation. Here in Quebec, it is approximately 50 years since the Quiet Revolution, a political movement that wrested control over health and education from the Catholic Church to a secular government. Today in Montreal, fewer than 4% of the population regularly attends mass, a trend that echoes the situation in Europe (1).

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 15, 2019

This edited volume will examine intersections of Design and Gender across a range of historical moments, political environments and material categories. We invite readings and materialist critiques of designed objects, exchanges, spaces, instruments, affects and styles as well as evaluations of ‘design practice’ as gendered work, performance, or representation. Of particular interest: contemporary design theory, transnational design events, ecological design, new technocentric or scientific design, posthuman material culture and local design archaeologies as they relate to the politics of gender and agency in our post-millennial era.

Dirty Places: geographies of waste

updated: 
Tuesday, November 20, 2018 - 1:48pm
See below
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, December 31, 2018

We are putting together a special issue tentatively called “Dirty places: geographies of waste”. “Waste” is a broad and multifaceted concept, always open to interpretation. We want to keep it that way, partly because we are looking for fresh voices, and partly because we want to facilitate an interdisciplinary conversation. However, for clarity’s sake, waste is here defined as “material that we failed to use” (Gille, 2018). Gille’s succinct definition reads like an updated version of Mary Douglas’s (1966) classic take on “dirt” —“matter out of place” —, this time formulated under the banner of the Anthropocene. For a deeper look into the concept of waste, please read the following texts:
