The Intimate and the Extimate: Violence and Gender in the Globalized World

Ed., Sanja Bahun-Radunovi? and V.G. Julie Rajan, Rutgers University

Featuring a Preface written by Charlotte Bunch, Executive Director of the
Center for Women’s Global Leadership, the anthology The Intimate and the
Extimate: Violence and Gender in the Globalized World will explore violence
against women as reflected in and refracted through a gendered lens from the
individual to the local, regional, and the international levels. The
collection explores violence as both an unsettled/unsettling philosophical
category and as a unifying term for the diverse material acts of the
physical, representational, psychological, historical, and cultural spheres.
A core agenda of the text is to bring visibility to the lesser-known forms
of violence and to violence in uncommonly considered parts of the globe. We
are seeking papers addressing a wide range of topics, from the rhetoric and
epistemology of violence, to the relationships between subalternity and
violence, to the legal repercussions, sexual and health implications,
artistic articulations, dynamics of environment and development, linguistic
or cultural hegemonic, or historical and transgenerational inscriptions of
violence. Deadline: November 1, 2005. Please email abstract, 150-word
biography, and contact information to: V.G. Julie Rajan at julie_at_rajans.org
