Body Politics: Rethinking Gender and Masculinity

updated: 
Friday, October 2, 2020 - 12:04pm
Edited Volume on Masculinity Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 20, 2020

Concept Note: The research on men and masculinities traces back to the women’s and gay liberation movements that challenged existing understandings of gender and power. Though the initial formulations of Masculinity Studies had started much early around the 1970s, it was not until the empirical research around 1980s-1990s that it began to develop as a newly formed discipline. As a logical extension of Feminism, Masculinity Studies looks into sex and/or gender as a discursive social construct and tries to understand them through theoretical hermeneutics.

Historical, mythical, and fictional narratives have relegated mothers to the roles of monster or quiet idol. These narrow identity barriers are exacerbated when other labels - woman of color, indigenous, trans, queer, low income, for example - are added. These multiple oppressions ultimately lead to biased, unethical, and incomplete medical treatment as women's understandings of their own bodies are dismissed.

In Cruising Utopia, José Esteban Muñoz argues that “Queerness is essentially about the rejection of a here and now and an insistence on potentiality or concrete possibility for another world.” For Muñoz, the future becomes the domain of the queer, the time and place where queerness can thrive. However, scholars often overlook the “now” in queer theory, an urgent, revolutionary now akin to what Walter Benjamin calls the “Jetztzeit.”

Evil Children: Children and Evil
2nd Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Sunday 18th April 2021 - Monday 19th April 2021
Vienna, Austria

The idea of the child as innocent, as pure, the ‘little angel’ in need of protection from the harsh realities of life and the corrupting influences of the world around us has come to dominate our thinking, language, values, social policies and educational philosophies. Children are seen as ‘little people’, ‘blank slates’, works in progress who are loved, nurtured and guided as they grow to become mature, rational and responsible adults.

Bengali author Rabindranath Tagore, the first non-Westerner to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, was a prolific writer in diverse literary genres, including both long and short-form fiction. This panel explores similarities and differences between Tagore’s short stories on the one hand, and his novellas and novels, on the other. Did the Bengali author tend to treat specific themes at length while reserving other motifs for his shorter fiction? Concerning setting, characterization, and plot trajectory, what are similarities and differences between Tagore’s shorter tales and his novels? Are there differences between Tagore’s stories and his novels regarding their accessibility and currency in the present day and for transnational audiences?

Abstracts should be a maximum of 300 words and be submitted via the Northeast Modern Language Association website. Go to http://www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention/callforpapers/submit.html

Endless Beginner: Adrienne Rich in the Twenty-First Century

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Re-reading Adrienne Rich in the quickly shifting crises of the year 2020, one senses the renewed urgency of her ethico-political project as a citizen poet seeking to “believe the fever can break, the sick body politic come back to life” (A Human Eye 98). Throughout her poetic career Rich challenged the perceived disconnect between poetry and material social good, and while her early and mid-career poems may be the most frequently anthologized, the poetry and prose she published in the second half of her six-decade project continues an extraordinary trajectory of expanding solidarities and poetic technique.

Monsters and the Monstrous

Friday 16th April 2021 - Saturday 17th April 2021

“I’m hated, execrated, those I meet are repelled by me. They want me crucified, and maybe their feelings are all too justified,” sang the American band The Bastard Fairies in their 2010 title track “Man-Made Monster.” The lyrics of the song oscillate between cackling threats of murder and cannibalism, and the lament, “It didn’t have to be this way, I’m a man-made monster led astray.”
