American Literature (Duke University Press)
Special Issue on SF, Fantasy, and Myth
DEADLINE: 31 May 2010

More than one commentator has mentioned that science fiction as a form is where theological narrative went after Paradise Lost, and this is undoubtedly true…The form is often used as a way of acting out the consequences of a theological doctrine….Extraterrestrials have taken the place of angels, demons, fairies and saints, though it must be said that this last group is now making a comeback.
—Margaret Atwood, "Why We Need Science Fiction"

Feminist Challenges or Feminist Rhetorics?: Locations, Scholarships and Discourse, October 12-15, 2011

Sunday, May 16, 2010 - 5:40pm
The Coalition of Women Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition 8th Biennial Conference on Feminisms and Rhetorics

The 2011 Feminisms and Rhetorics conference, sponsored by the Coalition of Women Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition, will be hosted by Minnesota State University, Mankato October 12-15, 2011.

The conference committee is strongly interdisciplinary and therefore our theme seeks to recognize the spaces between disciplines and communities. The conference theme is meant to acknowledge the academic and socio-discursive spaces that feminisms, and rhetorics on or about feminisms, inhabit. Major political, religious and social leaders have recently discussed feminism, including the Dalai Lama, but the discussion seems to revolve around cultural or essentialized discourses of feminism.
