CFP Women & War: Feminist Approaches to War and Violence

Departments of Philosophy and Global Studies, Temple University

Submissions Due: 26 August 2022

November 11 to 12, 2022 [in person and online]

The philosophical discourse around questions of war has tended to approach war from the perspective of states, political leaders, and soldiers. These perspectives are often treated as objective, universal, or neutral points of view. However, given the reality of gender inequality in the social, political, and legal spheres, these “objective” perspectives have tended to focus our attention on the experiences and concerns of men. What has been kept hidden from view are the unique ways in which war affects women. This conference seeks to challenge the dominant frameworks of war by bringing to the fore feminist and other alternative approaches (e.g., critical race, queer theoretic, decolonial) to questions of war. Interested participants are warmly invited to submit abstracts of approximately 500 words to Lee-Ann Chae at lchae@temple.edu by August 26, 2022. Notifications will be made via email by September 9.

CFP Aesthetics and Politics. Art As Resistance? [Graduate Conference]

King’s College London, 4 November 2022

Submissions Due: 4 September 2022

The purpose of this transdisciplinary conference is to explore the particular relations of aesthetics to politics. We welcome 20 minute contributions in relation but not limited to the following questions:

  • How do we negotiate the tensions between aesthetics and politics? 
  • How can aesthetic practices resist structures of domination?
  • How do aesthetic practices act on reality and transform the ways in which we can relate to that reality? 
  • How do our aesthetic judgements impact our political choices? 
  • How can we think of the dual function that aesthetics can play in politics: as both a tool of resistance and alienation? 
  • What role does the mimetic effect of aesthetics have in this dual function? 
  • How can aesthetics enable subversion of gender norms? 
  • What tools can the study of an act of creativity provide to think about aspects of reality that could otherwise go unnoticed? 

To apply, please submit a 250 word abstract and 100 word biographical statement via the online form: 2022 Graduate Conference Aesthetics and politics. Art as resistance? (google.com).

CFP, Special Volume, Asia Shorts: Global Anti-Asian Racism

Volume Editor: Jennifer Ho (University of Colorado Boulder); Series Editor: David Kenley (Dakota State University)

Submissions Due: 1 October 2022

This special volume of Asia Shorts will focus on “Global Anti-Asian Racism,” a phenomenon, particularly in the guise of Yellow Peril, that has endured for centuries around the globe. In Europe and the Americas, Asian immigrants and refugees are and were treated as threats to national security, as well as the society/culture of American (whether U.S., Latin American, Central American, Caribbean, or Canadian) and European people. Yellow Peril and anti-Asian racism is also found in Africa, Australia, and New Zealand—wherever Asian immigrants and refugees found themselves, anti-Asian sentiments quickly followed. In the hope that this volume will be widely adopted by specialists and non-specialists alike, as well as serve as a valuable pedagogical resource for teachers, we seek shorter submissions that range in variety—traditional academic essays that have a historical or theoretical orientation or that thematically engage in cross-comparative Asian national perspectives—as well as creative and personal pieces that delve into how people have experienced or witnessed anti-Asian racism and/or Yellow Peril from different vantage points and perspectives.
