Frontiers, a Women Studies Journal
One of the premier publications in the field of feminist and gender studies, Frontiers has distinguished itself for its diverse and decisively interdisciplinary publication agenda that explores the critical intersections among—to name a few dimensions—gender, race, sexuality, and transnationalism. Frontiers is currently housed in the School for Cultural and Social Transformation at the University of Utah
The last two years have witnessed shifting relations between the Philippines and the United States, nations still tethered by a unique bond of transpacific colonial history. Recently, President Rodrigo Duterte’s calamitous war on drugs, as well as his designation of the Communist Party of the Philippines and New People’s Army as terrorist groups, have met with U.S. President Donald Trump’s approval and admiration. While the Obama administration sought to leverage Philippine alliance in a globalist “pivot to Asia,” it remains to be seen how the Philippine-American postcolonial relationship will be redefined in coming years.

Call for papers: The Tacky South
American Studies Association Annual Meeting
November 8-11, 2018
As a way to comment on a person’s style, the word “tacky” has distinctly southern origins. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, it first emerged around 1800 as a noun to describe “a poor white of the Southern States from Virginia to Georgia.” Although the OED does not draw connections between this origin and the origins of the adjective describing something “dowdy, shabby; in poor taste, cheap, vulgar,” these definitions suggest a clear link between national stereotypes of region, race, and class and urbane (and northern urban?) notions of taste, class, and sensibility.
The 90th annual conference of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association will take place November 2-4, 2018 at the Birmingham Sheraton in Birmingham, Alabama. This year's conference theme is Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies.

This panel seeks to find 3-4 strong proposals that would talk about the varied themes of international interest that emerge out of Visniec’s critically acclaimed plays. The political and the social are always strong points of interest as explored by the characters’ dynamic dialogues. Born in Romania, Visniec now lives in France, but his plays are performed internationally. He connects with audiences globally and that is proof of his exquisite writing. The panel also seeks to discuss how theater and performance are much needed in today’s conflicting and violent international context, and how the stage becomes an international platform where we are more than passive members, but instead are transformed by the spectacle.
Nature, the landscape and the environment have enjoyed a recurrent presence, indeed have been constant protagonists, in Irish literature and culture.This wild isolated island, originally feared or even despised by foreigners progressively became that romanticized, pre-modern Arcadia imagined by tourists from the early twentieth century onwards. The once desolated and barren landscapes of the Great Hunger were imaginatively recreated as green pastures, nostalgically conjured up by nineteenth- and twentieth-century Irish emigrants across the world.

Arguably, Western culture has been selling the concept of childhood from its inception. In the eighteenth century, figures like John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau persuaded their peers to buy the new idea that childhood constituted a distinct phase of human development.
