LGBT/Queer Studies:Toward Trans/national Scholarly and Activist Kinships

Place

Madrid, Spain

Introduction

We invite scholars and activists to join in an exploration of the methods, possibilities, challenges, and dangers of doing LGBT/queer scholarship, activism, pedagogy, and curriculum in a transnationalized and technologically mediated world. We want to address the many challenges of understanding and responding to the complexly lived lives of queer subjects, as they are shaped by local and global upheavals and opportunities. What does the ‘transnational’ mean? How are queer lives rendered visible and legible and affectively accessible? What matrices of power make some queer figures more visible than others? What new forms of scholarship and activism emerge as people, images, ideas, and capital move in rapid, uneven, and complex ways across national borders? How might practices of kinships, however tense or contingent, happen? How does, or should, the transnational turn shape our pedagogies and curricula? And how do we connect and collaborate as scholars and activists across the globe? These are messy knowledges, nuanced knowledges, framed by the local and the global in complicated and often surprising ways.

 The Edwardian Ford Madox Ford: Culture, Politics, and Gender

Place

Glasgow, United Kingdom

Introduction

Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) made a major contribution to the literature and culture of the Edwardian era as a novelist, poet, editor, and critic. While much scholarship has focused on Ford’s collaboration with Conrad, his success as a writer of historical fiction, and the founding and editing of the groundbreaking English Review during these years, there remains much exciting work to be done on this period of Ford’s life and work.

Proposals for papers are invited for an international conference focusing on Ford’s writing between 1901 and 1914, including his novels and stories, non-fictional prose, criticism, poetry, and letters. Papers comparing Ford to his Edwardian contemporaries are especially welcome, including (but not limited to) Max Beerbohm, Hilaire Belloc, Arnold Bennett, G. K. Chesterton, Arthur Conan-Doyle, Joseph Conrad, E. M. Forster, John Galsworthy, Constance Garnett, Elinor Glyn, Edmund Gosse, Violet Hunt, Henry James, Rudyard Kipling, D. H. Lawrence, Compton Mackenzie, Katherine Mansfield, George Moore, E. Nesbit, Stephen Reynolds, May Sinclair, H. G. Wells, and Israel Zangwill.

The conference aims to reflect the diversity of Ford’s work during the Edwardian years by engaging with a wide range of the themes and issues that preoccupy his writing, such as: Suffragettes; Social Change; Technology, Communication and Media; Music Hall; Fantasy; Class; Politics; Money. The main focus will be on Ford’s work written in or about the (long) Edwardian period: primarily the following books, but also including his writing for periodicals:

1st Global Conference Gender and Love

Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

The study of gender is an interdisciplinary field intertwined with feminism, queer studies, sexuality studies, postcolonial studies, and cultural studies (to name just some relevant fields).This project calls for the consideration of gender in relation to various kinds of love (with regard, for example, to self, spirit, religion, family, friendship, ethics, nation, globalisation, environment, and so on). How do the interactions of gender and love promote particular performances of gender; conceptions of individual and collective identity; formations of community; notions of the human; understandings of good and evil? These are just some of the questions that occupy this project.This conference welcomes research papers which seek to understand the interaction and interconnection between the concepts of love and gender; and whether, when, how and in what ways the two concepts conceive and construct each other.

8th Biennial Feminisms and Rhetorics Conference

Place

Mankato, MN, United States

Introduction

The 2011 Feminisms and Rhetorics conference, sponsored by the Coalition of Women Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition, will be hosted by Minnesota State University, Mankato.

The conference committee is strongly interdisciplinary and therefore our theme seeks to recognize the spaces between disciplines and communities. The conference theme is meant to acknowledge the academic and socio-discursive spaces that feminisms, and rhetorics on or about feminisms, inhabit. Major political, religious and social leaders have recently discussed feminism, including the Dalai Lama, but the discussion seems to revolve around cultural or essentialized discourses of feminism.

We seek proposals that speak to the challenges and diversities of feminist rhetoric and discourse, in public and private life, in the academy, and in the media. We welcome proposals on topics that significantly engage disciplines other than Rhetoric and Composition, and that have consequences for communities located outside of the academy.

Gendered Violence

Place

Bristol, United Kingdom

Introduction

Timed to coincide with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on the 25th November 2011, this conference is concerned with promoting cross-disciplinary and cross-sector debate about the causes and prevention of gendered violence and aims to provide a forum in which a dialogue between academics, practitioners, policy makers and grass roots organisations can develop. Violence committed to establish or maintain power relations between genders continues to be a major global public health problem. The personal, social and economic costs of gendered violence are recognised by the UN, WHO and individual governments as untenable and the need for developing and disseminating preventative and curative actions remains pressing.
