Deadline For Paper Submission: March 15, 2015
Socrates Journal invites Authors/Researchers to submit their Sponsored papers for consideration of publication in the regular Issues of the Journal.
Chapter proposals are invited for two new book projects, Ecofeminist Intersections and New Voices in Ecofeminist Activism, due by March 1, 2015. Both books explore the manifold ways that ecofeminism has been used across a range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, including but not limited to such fields as literary criticism, history, philosophy, religious studies, women's studies, anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, geography, and political science. Current doctoral students are especially encouraged to submit proposals for New Voices in Ecofeminist Activism, though all proposals will be considered for both books.

Possible topics: animal-human encounters, pastoral or colonial representations of ecologies/life words, and narratives and poetics of living in common(s). We are interested in papers that attend to the affective, everyday nature of more-than-huamn encounters and eco-spheres, as invoked/mediated in Romantic poetry and Victorian fiction. The extent to which representations of more-than-human publics in 19th-century English literature confound rather than confirm taxonomic thinking, or, more broadly, the ways in which more-than-human publics animate new relations/approaches to eco-criticism, (post-)colonial studies, body politics, posthumanism, more-than-humanism, etc., are of interest to us as well.
This year's Fabricating the Body panel is soliciting proposals for papers that explore the notion of bodies in our post-human or post-modern culture. Given this year's theme of "Arts and Sciences," this panel seeks papers that consider how scientific inquiry and philosophy has impacted our understanding of bodies in media (literature, film, comics, video games, etc.) or as consumers of media. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, theories of the post-human or post-modern body; (dis)abled, queer, global, marginalized, etc.
