For the International Congress of Asian Studies to be held in Leiden in July 2019 (11th-19th) we are looking for contributors to a panel addressing the translation and resistance to Western concepts of Feminism in China. The panel will last two hours (date to be decided within the Congress time frame by the Congress organizers). The contributions will be published online possibly in Transcultural Perspectives (E-Journal on Visual and Art History: http://www.kunsttexte.de/index.php?id=25&L=1).
The conference “Archiving Feminist Futures. Temporality and Gender in Cultural Analysis” builds on current debates around “feminist futures” and “queer temporalities”, which analyze time from an intersectional perspective. Here, time is regarded as a gendered phenomenon thus also referring to the nexus of “time and the other” (Fabian 2002). How are time and temporality being practiced, narrated, placed, and made tangible?
Suffrage at 100: Women and American Politics Since 1920
Call for 500-word Proposals: NEW DUE DATE: October 16, 2018
Shaped by different religious traditions, the apocalypse has been called upon throughout history to articulate collective anxieties, act as a warning, or a yearned-for spiritual salvation. These contradictory and competing aims behind imagining the end of the world in specific cultural moments make it a fertile ground for analysis. This conference will ask: what are the politics of picturing annihilation, from the early Christian Church to climate change today? This call for papers welcomes submissions from all historical periods and geographic regions.
The topic of this seminar is the presence of the “chicas raras” in Modern Spanish literature, also known as “queer women” in English. Queer is the perfect conceptual framework to think about how Spanish authors explore feminist themes, such as discrimination or inequality using their narratives as a tool to examine tensions in female subjectivity.
In the nearly post-human, hyper-connected twenty-first century, what does it mean to “have” a body? How does the personal body interact with, reproduce, subvert, resist, and/or reify the national body, if either of these can be said to exist?
