full name / name of organization:
Dr Stella Bolaki and Prof. Sabine Broeck
CALL FOR PAPERS for edited volume on Audre Lorde
“But my words will be there, something to bounce off, something to incite thought, activity” (Audre Lorde, “My words will be there”)
Audre Lorde’s Transatlantic Sisterhoods
We invite proposals for essays which look at how Lorde’s work inspired, enriched and was differentiated by its numerous and varied recontextualisations in different European countries including Britain, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, France as well as other European places Lorde did not have a direct encounter with.
We welcome essays addressing (though not limited to) the following questions focusing on one or more European contexts and drawing on a range of disciplinary perspectives:
-Which topics and motives in Lorde’s work were met with the greatest interest in her reception in Europe? Did her work function as a forum for discussing civil rights, the inclusion or exclusion of marginalised groups, issues pertaining to sexuality, health care and forms of ‘grassroots’ organisation?
We welcome a range of submissions from critical essays, archival work, case studies, personal reflections, manifestoes, interviews and mission statements from networks/activist groups whose work owes a debt to Lorde.
Please submit proposals in abstract form (200-300 words) by the 30th of September 2011 at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finished essays (longer essays from 6.000-8.000 and shorter up to 3000 words) to be submitted by 31st of March 2012 at email@example.com
We look forward to receiving your proposals and submissions for this volume!
Professor Sabine Broeck, University of Bremen
