CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Issue: Rhizomes 14: "Feminism's Others"

As with Rhizomes 7, Theory's Others, this special issue will provide a
space for theorists whose work falls outside the usual academic
boundaries, but here the focus will be on feminist thought. In that
feminism fundamentally aims to correct misconceptions about women in
order to bring about social and cultural gender equality, feminists must
represent -- and circulate representations -- of women as a group, which
would be impossible without making some general statements about women.

CFP: Poetic Form and Disability (3/1/07; MLA '07)

updated: 
Saturday, January 20, 2007 - 1:25am
Petra Kuppers

A Special Session for the MLA 2007 conference in Chicago:

"Poetic Form and Disability"

We welcome proposals that address intersections, opportunities,
aesthetic challenges and disjunctures between poetics and disability
studies. The emphasis is on formal approaches: we are less interested
in poetry that narrates disability, or whose authors happen to be
disabled, but rather in approaches to poetry and poetry criticism that
locate disability in, through, and with formal elements. We understand
disability here as a social formation, playing across embodiment and
cultural embedment: but what shape this political understanding of
disability takes might very well be part of the investigation.
