UPDATE: Feminist Aging (1/15/05; journal issue)

Leni Marshall

Book reviews, film reviews, and cover art are also being solicited.
Original CFP below.

National Women's Studies Association Journal (NWSA Journal)
Special Issue on Aging, Ageism, and Old Age, Spring 2006

Feminist theorists of old age, such as Baba Copper, Barbara Macdonald,
Cynthia Rich, and Margaret Cruikshank, have charged that women's studies
and the feminist movement have, in large part, ignored the issue of aging.
In a field in which so many other aspects of body-based identity are
recognized, debated, de- and re-constructed, and challenged, the subject of
old age remains relatively unexamined and untheorized - nearly taboo.

Call for Papers

Image Events: From Theory to Action (edited collection)
Eds. Joe Wilferth and Kevin DeLuca

In a world awash in images, in a culture wherein images constitute the most influential form of public discourse, constructing image events (namely staged acts of protest designed for media dissemination) has become a crucial rhetorical strategy for corporate hegemony and citizen resistance. Such events, as has been demonstrated by Greenpeace, by PETA, by the Truth campaign against big tobacco and so many more, aim to heighten public awareness and affect cultural or mainstream ideographs.
