Artisanal Deskilling, Labor, and Gender: Looking for fellow panelists: SHOT 2018 meeting

I am interested in organizing a session at SHOT for 2018 looking at changes in the acquisition of artisanal skills and the use of technology for non-professional users. The submission date for a full panel is March 31st. While the story of the deskilling labor is best known for men on the factory floor, my paper looks at home sewing as one of 20th Century American women’s most common encounters with artisanal labor and technology.

Essays on Resistance in Popular Culture

The 21st century has become inculcated with a sense of perpetual crisis, reflecting a world seemingly on the verge of catastrophe. This new age of anxiety is evident not only in the breakdown of traditional hegemonies, but also in an increasingly personal sense of fear, futility, and frustration for marginalized communities. Within this context, we invite essays for a collection that explores the topic/themes/ideas of resistance in works of myriad types of contemporary popular culture.
