Storytelling: Narrating Agency

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 3, 2023

The University of Idaho English Graduate Association is seeking submissions for our multidisciplinary conference, Storytelling: Narrating Agency. Historically, humans have attributed agency to human consciousness and intentionality, often to exert control over other entities. Narrating Agency is an exploration of the meaning of agency, and what/who can have it. Within and beyond humans, we wonder what has the capacity and drive to enact change? In the stories we read, tell, and see, who has the ability to take action and why? Who are the characters, elements, landscapes, and settings that drive change in our stories of the world around us?

NWSA CFP: Decolonizing Feminist and Queer Pedagogies

updated: 
Wednesday, February 22, 2023 - 3:11pm
National Women's Studies Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 8, 2023

"This workshop highlights pedagogical practices that seek to transform Feminist and Queer Studies classrooms into radical and liberatory spaces for decolonial thought and practice. Even as we emphasize intersectionality in our classes, women of color or queer of color critiques are largely offered after—and as correctives to—a canon where whiteness is default and invisible. As a result, these institutionalized canons, which naturalize whiteness alongside colonial conceptions of gender, retain their primacy of thought. How can we instead design our courses to center the coloniality of knowledge and the coloniality of gender? How do we put to practice a pedagogy that takes to heart the work of Lugones, Mohanty, Munoz, and hooks, among others?"
