CFP: New Antigone: Gender, Kinship, Family (9/1/05; journal issue)

New Antigone ISSN 1832-7680 vol 1 October 2005 online and print
fully refereed journal is dedicated to J Butler's study, Antigone's
Claim: Kinship Between Life and Death (2000).

"In her act, she [Antigone] transgresses both gender and kinship
norms, and though the Hegelian tradition reads her fate as a sure sign
that this transgression is necessarily failed and fatal, another
reading is possible in which she exposes the socially contingent
character of kinship, only to become the repeated occasion in the
critical literature for a rewriting of that contingency as immutable
necessity." Judith Butler

The theme of the inaugural issue is: Gender, Kinship and Family –
Crossing Cultures and the submission deadline is extended until 1
