TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly 11.3:

 Trans* Ecologies

 

Guest editors: Erin L. Durban and Megan Moore

 

Eva Hayward (2022) inquires, “Can trans mean anything to ecology? If so, what?” The guest editors of this issue of Transgender Studies Quarterly offer Hayward’s question as an invitation to artists, activists, and scholars to consider the possibilities of combining trans* analytics and undisciplined environmental and ecological thinking. The issue follows the Queer & Trans Ecologies Symposium that took place at the University of Minnesota in spring 2023.

In a recent blogpost, Bill Gates announces the beginning of the age of AI. Gates’ enthusiastic pitch for AI is not limited to it being a groundbreaking technological advancement. He sees it as a powerful tool for achieving social and environmental justice. Gates notes “achievement in math is going down across the country, especially for Black, Latino, and low-income students” and he claims that “AI can help turn that trend around.”

Global Competencies: New Methodologies in 21st Century Global and Intercultural Education

In the past decade, an increasing number of colleges and universities have added elements of intercultural and global awareness to their discipline, degree, and course outcomes. Whether titled “intercultural awareness” or “global citizenship,” “intercultural competence” or “global awareness,” these new focal points center on a more international, cross-cultural understanding of the world and its interactions. The American Association of Colleges and Universities, for example, has generated a “Global and Social Responsibility Initiative” that articulates three main outcomes for students in the 21st century:

1.) Become informed, open-minded, and responsible people who are attentive to diversity across the spectrum of differences.

The Materiality of Excess

updated: 
Friday, May 26, 2023 - 4:24am
NEMLA 2024 CFP
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

What does "too much" feel like? 

The slimy or gelatinous texture elicits a sense of disgust in some, while others experience pleasure and luxuriousness. Excess can also manifest as waste and pollution: the plastic gyre in the ocean's center; the sticky, musky sensation on one's skin amidst smog. The materiality of excess can also be defined by the marginalized, commodified bodies that become sites of extraction as their labor, organs, and corporeal bodies enter global capital circulation. This session invites papers exploring the materiality of excess – its affect, texture, aesthetics, and politics – to engage with the realm of otherness. 

Possible areas of investigation may include, but are not limited to:

Unsettling The Coloniality of Knowledge: Toward More-Than-Human Approaches to Epistemological and Environmental Justice

Most academic disciplines today remain entrenched in a lack of epistemic trust. The theories and methods through which knowledge production is validated are still determined at the centers of global academic production, while some epistemologies, counted as 'peripheral', are prevented from disseminating beyond their national borders. Non-Western epistemologies are stunted by hegemony and the pervasiveness of anthropocentric Western thought and are thus not central in the shaping of academic fields.

B. R. Ambedkar’s Annihilation of Caste (AoC) has been described by Anand Teltumbde as the Communist Manifesto of “caste India.” Unfortunately, however, there is a dearth of critical readings on this text. The upcoming special issue of All About Ambedkar: A Journal on Theory and Praxis aims to address this lacuna. The objective is to inspire renewed engagements with Ambedkar’s classic. The special issue will be co-edited by Dr Sanjiv Kondekar and Dr Mahitosh Mandal and is scheduled to be published in December 2023.
