CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR A PROPOSED EDITED COLLECTION. We are seeking submissions for a collection of essays titled Beyond Equity Into Justice: Bringing Theory Into Practice at Community Colleges.

Even as the air in Delhi grows increasingly toxic and poisonous, a fearful, dreaded specter is haunting the subcontinent today, just as toxic as the poisonous air.

Climates of Violence, Coalitions of Care
April 10th, 2020
Rice University, Houston, TX
The Center for the Study of Women, Gender and Sexuality at Rice University invites panel and paper proposals for our 2020 Spring Graduate Symposium that offer analysis and critique of contemporary climates of violence. We are eager to receive submissions that imagine alternative futures and coalitions of care. Participants may consider the role violence plays in structuring climates, places, and spaces, with a particular focus on the geopolitical histories and the racial, gendered, and class- based realities of those structures.
Medieval Leavings (https://medievaleavings.hcommons.org/) is a new, Open Access, online journal that publishes editorial orphans on topics in Medieval Studies (broadly construed) and makes them available for our community to use. We hope to ameliorate some of the inequities (and maybe also indignities) of journal publishing.
Medieval Leavings will also feature a special section, Archival Darlings (https://medievaleavings.hcommons.org/our-archival-darlings/), highlighting exciting archival finds that may be useful for other scholars to know about, but that simply don’t fit our own formal publication plans.
