Reflexive Altered Spaces in the Anthropocene

Dee Horne/PAMLA conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

Increasing disparities of wealth, inequalities, and unfairness have led to social protests, civil wars, and other forms of unrest in many parts of the world. Extreme climate changes causing droughts, forest fires, floods, hurricanes, and other disasters strain already limited and finite resources and have led to social unrest and to displacement and migration of citizens in search of basic necessities: food, water, shelter. Other forces and events have disrupted the stability of Earth’s systems throughout deep time, but the Anthropocene is the only age distinguished by at least the opportunity for human self-awareness and reflexivity regarding the agency of change.

The Art of Not Doing: An Interdisciplinary Conference on Rest, Resistance and Pleasure Activism

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 3, 2019

Conference date: 17 October 2019
Submission deadline: 3 June 2019
Conference location: Birkbeck, University of London, United Kingdom

In a culture that valorises busyness, productivity, pace and “progress”, stillness can be radical. Refusing, ignoring, omitting, not doing; sometimes the most political actions look like doing nothing at all. But who gets to not do? When and how is not doing a politicised, racialised, privileged, resistant or utopian act?

NeMLA 2020:From Hillary C to AOC: Social Media and Women’s Voices in the Public Sphere

Boosted by Barak Obama’s revolutionary usage of social media in 2008 to mobilize young voters and energize a new party base, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign also sought to make strategic use of social media platforms—as did her opponent’s, with dramatically different results. In 2019, rising political star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been acknowledged as a master of social media for her usage of Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram—platforms where her followers number in the millions. For AOC, strategic utilization of social media in a limited congressional district campaign led directly to national prominence and increased presence within traditional print and television media platforms for her policy propositions.

NeMLA 2020: I’m No Feminist!: Negotiating Rural Feminisms and Feminist Identities

Inclusive Roundtable at NeMLA 2020. According to the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, rural areas cover 97% of the land area of the U.S. and are inhabited by 60 million people—about 19% of the U.S. population (“New Census Data Show Differences Between Urban and Rural Populations,” Dec. 2016). In an age of heightened political rhetoric and deepened ideological divide, what does it mean to identify as a feminist in a rural community? What does it mean to practice feminism in a rural community? How do those of us who teach in rural communities engage with the various definitions and practices of feminism in ways that best benefit our students?
