University of Texas at San Antonio

Black and Latina feminist scholars offer multiple ways of understanding feminist cultures that transcend ideological borders and patriarchal conventions. More recently, Black and Latina feminists have negotiated the positionality of the woman of color in the ever-changing world of Hip Hop since its inception. The Black and Brown Feminisms in Hip Hop Media Conference situates Black and Latina feminist theory in the context of Hip Hop representation to discuss ways Hip Hop music, film, and club industries fetishize, exploit, celebrate, empower and/or disempower Black and Brown women.

Game studies is quickly emerging as a popular, interdisciplinary field within the humanities and social sciences, yet medieval scholars are still only beginning to explore the relationship between recreational games and literature from a literary or cultural context. This session seeks to broaden this field of study by focusing on depictions of games and gaming in medieval literature and their relation to recreation in the Middle Ages.

CFP: Collection of Essays on Katherine Philips (12/01/10)

updated: 
Thursday, August 12, 2010 - 1:33pm
Ed. David L. Orvis and Ryan Singh Paul

Katherine Philips has experienced something of a Renaissance. Lauded in her own time as "the matchless Orinda," she was dismissed for several centuries as a minor poet. In the past twenty-five years this has begun to change, as feminist and queer scholars especially have turned to Philips to reexamine and reimagine woman's place in the cultural landscape of late-seventeenth-century England. While interest in Philips has continued to grow exponentially, helping to transform the way we do literary history and theory, there is yet to be a collection of essays that demonstrates the vast import of the author's life and works.
