Higonnet, Margaret

Title: "Comparatively Queer: Crossing Time, Crossing Cultures"

This collection seeks to queer the field of comparative studies as well as
demonstrate how a comparative component might be considered central to
"queering queer studies" itself. Papers are therefore sought that take a
comparative approach to queer projects by interrogating the usual national
limits of study as well as the nexus of comparison where traditional boundaries
break down. Especially welcome will be work that crosses historical periods,
cultures, and linguistic contexts.

Issue 15: Intimacy

In recent years, scholars from a broad range of disciplines have engaged the issue of intimacy. From these various efforts, at least one fact is clear: There is not one intimacy, but many. How do we describe these intimacies, and what complicates our descriptions? Intimacy is not simply synonymous with love, but it is different from friendship, and often quite different from sex. Or is it? Moreover, once we have discovered what intimacy is, where do we find it: in communities and nations, between or among friends, between or among lovers? How is intimacy negotiated and produced, maintained, or, often, lost?

Negotiating Gender: New Perspectives on Asian American Literary Studies

This proposed collection of essays intends to tackle a fundamental issue in
Asian American literary studies—the gender gap, i.e. a fission roughly
along gender lines in Asian American thinking and articulation about ethnic
identity. Ever since the early 1970s, Asian American feminists and
nationalists have been engaged in a heated exchange on the roles of gender,
race, and culture in the formation of an Asian American identity, with
gender being the defining element. While the debate has invigorated Asian
American critical discourse, the prolonged warring atmosphere has also
divided Asian American community.

CFP: Women, Representation, and Space in 19th and 20th C. Lit. (2/1/05; collection)

teresa gomez

Submissions are invited for a collection of essays on women,
representation and space in 19th and 20th century literature. While the
main focus of the volume is women's metaphorical appropriation of public
and private spaces since the beginning of the 19th century until today,
the book will also pay particular attention to the way women writers
have interrogated and deconstructed the binary divide between public and
private space. Some possible topics include:

-- Public role of domestic settings, and their implications for women.

-- Literary configurations of interstitial or liminal spaces where the
separation between private and public sphere is suspended.

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.
