Special issue: Marguerite Duras

Monday, December 4, 2017 - 12:25pm
S: Journal of the Circle for Lacanian Ideology Critique
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

For the most part, Lacanian discussions of Marguerite Duras’ work have focused on The Ravishing of Lol V. Stein. While this should not surprise – the novel was presented by Michèle Montrelay during Lacan’s Seminar in 1965 and Lacan himself devoted a short essay to it – it also raises the question whether other novels, theatre texts or films by Duras can be approached from a Lacanian point of view, to an equally illuminating effect.

The editors of S invite you to present readings of texts and films by Duras, other than Lol V. Stein. This may also be an occasion to address more general topics such as love, sexual difference, voice, gaze, repetition and politics, via a confrontation of Duras with Lacan.

Small Cinemas Conference

From the Grassroots to the Global

 November 9-10, 2018

Boca Raton, Florida Atlantic University


In an increasingly globalized world where digital technology has gained greater access to socio-economically marginalized communities, the parameters of small cinemas have broadened their scope to include digitally shot material from portable devices like cellphones in an era of transnational internet distribution alongside its ongoing and historical association with national cinemas and celluloid-based products. 


*** Extended deadline:*** Reframing Medieval Bodies

Monday, December 4, 2017 - 12:23pm
35th Annual Meeting of the Illinois Medieval Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 8, 2017

Medievalists have long engaged in the study of the body, producing some of the most influential contributions to the “bodily turn” of the 1980s and 1990s. The multidisciplinary conference “Reframing Medieval Bodies” invites reflection on past scholarship in this area and elaboration of new approaches and methods. We invite papers from the full range of disciplines in medieval studies, exploring bodies in their physiological, symbolic, political, economic, and performative capacities. Papers that revisit "the body" in light of bioarchaeological research and the history of medicine are especially welcome, as are papers that engage recent research on disability, gender, and race.

"Futures of Feminist Science Studies"

This special issue of Women's Studies: an interdisciplinary journal invites submissions that work at the intersections of science studies, feminism, and cultural studies. We are especially interested in work that explores the possibilities that emerge from feminist science studies, both as a critique science’s “culture of no culture” and as a pedagogical intervention relevant to the training of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies students. Submissions for this issue should fall into one of two broad categories: "Gender, Science, and the Practice of Culture" and "Feminist Science Studies in the University Classroom."
