CALL FOR PAPERS - REVOLUTIONARY GENDERS

Deadline for submissions: September 21, 2016

Conference dates: November 18 & 19, 2016, NUI Galway

The quest for equality always involves change, sometimes revolutionary change. This change, this revolution can be slow, living in the shadows, waiting for the moment to strike. Or it can be loud, visible and quick. Either way the landscape is changed.
In the wake of a revolution what remains? What is left behind? What changes? And for whom? What compromises are made?

Ann Marie A. Short

An examination of cultural representations of breastfeeding that attends to diffuse discourses about infant feeding, ranging from medical and anthropological to socioeconomic and cultural, all the while utilizing feminist methodologies, can facilitate an interrogation of the feminist implications of breastfeeding advocacy, including essentializing discourses about women's bodies as the "natural" choice for infant feeding and the complex considerations women and families navigate in making decisions about infant feeding.

[UPDATE - Deadline Extended] Writing as Activism: Motivating Social and Political Shifts

updated: 
Friday, March 11, 2016 - 12:00am
Brooklyn College English Graduate Program

This year's conference seeks to establish a link between the act of writing and activism by focusing on the strategies writers use to bring attention to their social and political aims. Writing has been used to inform the public, criticize societal norms, and capture lived experiences. Writing has also been used to respond to rhetoric that justifies bigotry or reinforces socially constructed norms. As new questions arise about freedom, identity, religion, and related matters, many writers feel compelled not only to capture the social and political issues of their time, but also to use writing to change notions about the world we live in.

- ROUNDTABLE - Teaching World Literature at the Borders

updated: 
Thursday, March 10, 2016 - 11:36pm
MMLA 2016 St. Louis, MO

In the spirit of MMLA's conference theme of "Border States," this roundtable seeks to explore new pedagogical approaches to the teaching of world literature to college undergraduates, especially those in survey courses, though others will be considered. We are particularly interested in papers that explore how we introduce students to "world literature" in new and innovative ways, models that move from traditional surveys to the borders of world literature, and ways in which world literature, broadly speaking, can be effectively included in the curricula.

[UPDATE] Call for Papers - Lit Crit from a Left Perspective - St. John's University Humanities Review

updated: 
Thursday, March 10, 2016 - 6:15pm
St. John’s University Humanities Review (Vol. Fourteen, Issue 1/Spring 2016)

Slavoj Žižek has suggested that, after the spectacular failure of party-states in the twentieth century, it is no longer time for the Left to change the world, but again to interpret it. Of course, Žižek's directive comes in the wake of popular anti-capitalist and anti-racist revolts around the world which have reinvigorated militants and scholars alike: from New York to Cairo, Kobanî to Ferguson. There is, evidently, no easy division between action and interpretation, between theory and practice, even in the absence of any major world power designating itself as Communist. And yet, Žižek's plea must be a tempting one for those scholars working in the current, increasingly globalized university system.
