Call for submissions for Recollections of the N-Word: A Black Female


This is a call for narratives, poetry and critical essays for an anthology about Black-identified females who either want to write critical essays about the n-word (not to be confused with the other word, n*gga, that some blacks use amongst themselves) or share their experiences of the first time they were called the n-word and/or had heard/read the word for the first time even though it may not have been directed toward them. All Black-identified females are welcome to participate, regardless of age, educational background, nationality, etc.

Please send to the mailing address listed below or (preferably) send via email as a Word or Appleworks attachment. Please also attach a short bio and contact info. Submissions should be double spaced, with 1" margins, and preferably no longer than 15 pages. This anthology will hopefully be published at the end of 2006 as part of a Harvard University-Affiliated Research Project in which I hope to create a book as well as a DVD (with interviews by Black women) and website. I am a Masters Candidate in the Technologies in Education program and am exploring ways of using various technologies/media to educate people about the lives and voices of Black-identified women as well as exploring how Black girls and women navigate through racism.

Deadline: Feb. 2, 2006

Feel free to email me or call with any questions.

UCLA School of Law, Columbia Law School, University of Southern California Center for Law, History & Culture, and Georgetown University Law Center invite submissions for the fifth annual meeting of the Law & Humanities Junior Scholar Workshop to be held at USC Law School in Los Angeles, CA on June 6 & 7, 2006.

Paper competition:

The paper competition is open to untenured professors, advanced graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in law and the humanities. In addition to drawing from numerous humanistic fields, the Workshop welcomes critical, qualitative work in the social sciences. Between five and ten papers will be chosen, based on anonymous evaluation by an interdisciplinary selection committee, for presentation at the June Workshop. At the Workshop, two senior scholars will comment on each paper. Commentators and other Workshop participants will be asked to focus specifically on the strengths and weaknesses of the selected scholarly projects, with respect to subject and methodology. Moreover, the selected papers will then serve as the basis for a larger conversation among all the participants about the evolving standards by which we judge excellence and creativity in interdisciplinary scholarship, as well as about the nature of interdisciplinarity itself.

Papers should be works-in-progress between 30 and 50 double-spaced pages in length (including footnotes/endnotes). A dissertation chapter may be submitted so long as it can stand alone as a piece of work with its own integrity. A paper that has been submitted for publication is eligible as long as it will not be in galley proofs or in print at the time of the Workshop. The selected papers will appear in a special issue of the Legal Scholarship Network; there is no other publication commitment. The Workshop will pay the travel expenses of authors whose papers are selected for presentation.

Submissions will be accepted until January 9, 2006, and should be sent by e-mail to:

2006 ACTR Conference / Congrès de l'ARTC 2006

Association for Canadian Theatre Research

Association de la recherche théâtrale au Canada

The next ACTR annual conference will be held May 27-30, 2006, at York University, Toronto, as part of the Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities. ACTR welcomes papers on all topics and practices of interest to the organization, both Canadian and international.

Given the location of our 2006 conference in Canada's largest city, and in light of the intense debate over the means and methods of urban renewal currently playing out in Toronto, we especially invite proposals relating to this year's conference theme:

Performing the City

Our conference this year will explore multiple intersections between performance and the city: the city as the site of performance, the city as theatre's material, historical, and ideological context, and theatrical representations of the city. We especially encourage papers that engage with the city as an international and intercultural entity, and we welcome perspectives that trouble the local, national, and cultural frames through which performance is traditionally read.

Paper and presentation proposals:

Proposals for papers and presentations should include a 250-word abstract and a short bio. Actors, designers, directors, playwrights and educators are particularly encouraged to share their work in the form of workshops, performance pieces and demonstrations. Paper and presentation proposals are due by November 15, 2005.

Panel proposals:

We invite panels that address the Congress theme, a special research topic, or a current issue of concern to theatre scholars. Proposals for varied and innovative formats are welcome, including three-person panels, seminars, and roundtables. All panel proposals should include a 250-word rationale. If you have selected the members of your
proposed panel, you should include participants' names, affiliations, paper titles, and contact information. If you are proposing a panel that will be filled by an open call, please include the text for the call for papers. Panel proposals are due by November 1, 2005.

Please send submissions (preferably as email attachments in MS Word) to:

Sex Work Matters: Beyond Divides

A Conference in Spring 2006

The Sex Work Matters project announces the call for papers for a conference held at the City University of New York and The New School on March 29-30, 2006.

The Sex Work Matters project provides scholars, activists and analysts with a platform for multidisciplinary, cross-institutional exchange of ideas and networking. In addition to featuring high-profile leaders and scholars, the conference in March 2006 will offer a much-needed opportunity for graduate students, sex workers and activists to enter the debate, present original work and identify areas for collaboration. Additional events organized to complement the conference include the Sex Workers Soiree and other networking opportunities with local organizations and sex workers, roundtable mixers featuring established scholars and activists, and 4-6 graduate student panels including faculty and activist commentators.

The Sex Work Matters project invites submissions of abstracts of work exploring the economic, social, cultural, and political aspects of sex work. In the selection process, special attention will be paid to promoting a critical race, gender and class analysis
across topics. In addition to theoretical work, especially welcome are narratives, ethnographies, case studies and typologies, e.g. on topics which elsewhere receive less attention, such as male, gay, lesbian or transgender sex work, activists' testimonies, or the emergence of John Schools. Selected papers will be considered for publication in an edited volume following the conference. There will be limited funding for travel scholarships for eligible participants.

Possible Topics

- Feminist Issues in Sex Work

- Ethics and Morality

- Art and Sex Work

- The Role of the State and Policy Making

- Sex Workers' Rights and Activism

- Sex and Money: Sex Work and Economics

- Sex Work and Immigration

- Sex Work Careers in the Lifecycle

- Sex Work and the Family

- Issues in Male, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, and Transsexual Sex Work


Paper abstracts of no longer than 500 words, a resume and contact information should be sent no later than November 30, 2005 to the project's email address: Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam. Necesita tener JavaScript habilitado para poder verlo.
