In 1976, Adrienne Rich broke new ground with her text Of Woman Born, in which she challenged scholars to confront their tendency to avoid discussions of motherhood, observing: "We know more about the air we breathe, the seas we travel, than about the nature and meaning of motherhood." Rich's book helped to launch the academic study of mothering in literature, as evidenced by the publication of several key texts: The Lost Tradition: Mothers and Daughters in Literature (1980), Mother Puzzles: Daughters and Mothers in Contemporary American Literature (1989), Women's Fiction Between the Wars: Mothers, Daughters, and Writing (1998), This Giving Birth: Pregnancy and Childbirth in American Women's Writing (2000), and Textual Mothers, Maternal Texts (2010).

The special focus of the 2014 conference of The Utopian Studies Society is nonviolence and its relationship to utopianism. Our politics and culture are built around violence and war. As already Ralph W. Emerson observed, "[t]hat the project of peace should appear visionary to great numbers of sensible men; should appear laughable, even, to numbers; should appear to the grave and good-natured to be embarrassed with extreme practical difficulties, —is very natural." Moreover, nonviolent ends are often justified by violent means; we "fight" for justice and peace. Even the word "nonviolence"—like utopia—is defined by a lack; and likewise charged with idealism or wishful thinking.

BACKGROUND: Okinawa occupies a pivotal - if tragic - position in the international history of biological and chemical weapons. During the US military's control of Okinawa between 1945 and 1972, the Pentagon tested biological weapons on the island and stored its largest stockpile of chemical munitions outside the continental United States. According to veterans and military documents, Agent Orange was also kept on Okinawa during the Vietnam War when the island served as a forward staging post for the conflict. In 1969, a leak of nerve gas on Okinawa sickened U.S. service members and sparked far-reaching ramifications.
Confirmed keynote speaker:
We are delighted to announce that our distinguished keynote speakers for Deviate! will be Professor Laura Mulvey (Birkbeck, University of London) and Professor Maria Pramaggiore (National University of Ireland, Maynooth).
