deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 30, 2018

Call for submissions to a collection which critically examines programs that prominently feature children in international (i.e. non-American) television. Programs may include those targeted to children, or those programs targeted to adults but contain child characters. We invite submissions on programs from Canada, the UK, Continental Europe, Australasia, Africa, Asia, Central and South America, and the Middle East. These essays will explore how international television has been a significant conduit for the public consumption of changing ideas about children and childhood, and will connect relevant events, attitudes, or anxieties within their respective countries of origin to an analysis of children or childhood in international programs.

“Towards an Aesthetics of South Texas Women Artists” aims to recover and analyze regional artistic productions to get at a sense of what characterizes South Texas women’s art and literature in relation to the area as well as to the larger traditions of women’s regionalist writing and art. 

  • We welcome proposals that seek to analyze the artistic production of South Texas women (literary, visual arts, and music).
  • We also welcome readings or presentations of creative work by South Texas women.

Send a 250-word abstract to Dr. Susan Roberson (susan.roberson@tamuk.edu) by July 30, 2018.

This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.
