CFP: 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 for Anthology

"Feminisms Reclaimed: Engendering Development, Global Capitalism, and the Modern"

The recent obsession with Post/modernity and globalization has left many caught up in a discourse of glocality and social change on the one hand and global policing and multi-national corporate financing on the other. Though recently some have turned their attention toward women and gender mainstreaming in these discourses, it is unclear whether or not this new focus on women can cross disciplinary and policy divides. Nor is it clear that focusing on women is in fact unpacking gender negotiations or employing feminist ethics.
