Race & Queer, Trans, and Reproductive Rights

 

“When we are talking about gender and sexual politics…I’m not convinced we need to invent any trans or gender-based rubrics to understand the space or to mobilize against it. The existing critical rubrics of race and empire and racial governance would already encompass and analyze perfectly well what is going on and also provide us with a different political grammar of political solidarity and history.”

Black Feminist Excesses

(MLA 2025 Proposed Working Group)

 

This working group aims to theorize excess, desire and unbridled being in Black feminist and womanist studies. How does Black feminism and womanism engage disparate, wayward, or fringe forms of identity, embodiment, materiality, affect and culture?  How can concepts like ‘indulgence’ or ‘aspiration’ be considered or troubled among current theoretical frameworks? What do you think is on the horizon for Black feminist and womanist thought in moving beyond the postfeminist moment?

In terms of temporal and geographic scope, the panel solicits contributions focusing on the late-nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries, with no geographical restrictions.

 

Call for Book Chapters on East Asian Pop Culture and Fandom Studies

Monday, April 15, 2024

East Asian pop culture has been increasingly in vogue across the globe since the 1990s, and the Hallyu wave of the early 2000s has further propelled the momentum of this movement. With the growth of this incredible cultural enterprise arose the global fandoms, paving way to the birth of novel fan cultures and traditions and, furthermore, to a global tribe of its own. This presence, which is felt internationally, calls for a space of parrhesia, of breaching certain boundaries, of destroying normative assumptions, of suggesting deviancies, of reclaiming spaces, and so on. The BTS revolution exemplifies this changing geo-cultural flux rather well.

MLA 2025 - Apertures of Access: Neoliberal Grammars of White Supremacy

Diana Molina & Sophie Ziner
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 29, 2024

This panel interrogates the formal and aesthetic evasions of Black texts and authors in response to the overt and obfuscated grammars of white supremacy. We welcome 250-word abstracts that explore the ways that Black writers enable or restrict the visibility of white supremacist and/or neoliberal grammars of language and grammars of living. Hidden in the etymology of the word grammar is “glamour,” suggesting the enchantment of an optical illusion. And yet, grammar is the architecture that unconsciously structures language and thought, creating the very conventions and norms that dictate how the world should be.

5-7 September 2024

Despite the brutal, colonial origins of Australian settlement, and the ongoing consequences for Indigenous people, an enduring connection between Britain and Australia remains. As Rolfe (2022) argues, until the 1960s, Australians incorporated a dual identity as both Australians and Britons, and although American influence has grown since then– the British/Australian relationship persists and has been widely explored in screen media.

The editors of this special issue of the Global South are seeking contributors whose work engages with questions of incarceration and movements for resistance and abolition. As many major works regarding the development of mass incarceration in the United States draw explicit links between the development of the prison and the legacies of U.S. slavery and Jim Crow practices, this issue is, rather (or also), interested in examining the development of the prison-industrial complex through a global south perspective.
