Nigel Joseph/NeMLA

If mainstream blockbuster films have in the past typically linked nationalism with hyper-masculinity (Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Harrison Ford as simultaneously male and American fantasy figures), what are we to make of more recent representations of gay identities in mainstream films that are also linked, sometimes quite explicitly, to nationalism?

"'Mother of everyone': The Achievement and Legacy of Muriel Rukeyser" 4/7-11/2010; 9/30/2009

William Waddell, Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA), 2010 Conference, Montreal, Quebec

"Mother of everyone," Maxine Kumin calls Muriel Rukeyser in a poem of that title from The Long Marriage (2003), and Adrienne Rich has both explicitly invoked her example in "An Atlas of the Difficult World" (1991) and extolled her talent and commitment in prose comments in her own essays and in an introduction to A Muriel Rukeyser Reader (Norton, 1994). The value and significance of Rukeyser's work is abundantly clear to these two fine poets, born half a generation later and thinking back through their mothers, as Woolf proposed that same decade.

The editors of /thirdspace: a journal of feminist theory and culture/ invite submissions for our forthcoming issue "Audacity of Hope?"

We are seeking submissions that critically engage with the notion of hope as it was used by a diverse assortment of constituents in the 2008 American presidential election. As a key theme in Barack Obama's campaign (and his book "Audacity of Hope"), the term evokes the possibility of transformational change. How does this version/vision of hope frame debates about gender and equity issues, struggles for equality and the recognition of difference? To what extent has the "hope" agenda impacted on politics, policy and popular media during Obama's presidency to date? This issue invites contributions that consider:
