Call For Papers - CFP

Gendered identities and realities are constituted through, among other things, media and performance. Paradoxically, however, the representations that substantiate these gender categories are often deployed for radically different purposes. For instance, they might be brought into play for the mobilization of dominant ideologies, on the one hand, and feminist disruptions, on the other. With attention to the diverse forums through which artistic and popular texts reach the public, this conference aims to address the inconsistencies, the absurdities, and irregularities of gender constitution in historical and contemporary local, national and global contexts. We seek to encourage theoretical, political, historical, and generally critical engagement with a variety of texts, ranging from television shows, advertisements, journalism, social media, film, literature, graphic fiction, photography, and live performance and to promote active discussion of them at the conference itself. To accomplish these goals, we invite short (8-12 minute) papers that might include but are not limited to analyses of the following themes and topics:

• The redeployment of mythological figures.

• Cultures of censorship.

• The value and limits of performative theories.

• Gender, genre and form in a digital age

• Representations of minorities, marginalised, indigenous and others

• The politics of comedy and humour

• New understandings of sexualities

• Uses and abuses of traditions, rituals, and beliefs

• Feminist resistance and empowerment

• Intersectionality, resistance and media
