grey-blue letters spelling NeMLA

The Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)‘s Women’s and Gender Studies Caucus seeks contributions for its 2022 meeting session that engage with the commodification of feminisms and intersectionality, as well as transnational feminist methods and theory as interventions in white hegemonic systems. Proposals are due by September 30, 2021.

This session seeks contributions that engage with the commodification of feminisms and transnational feminist methods and its interventions in white hegemonic systems. We are interested in identifying ways that feminism(s) have been appropriated to construct binaries that restrict the development of feminist thought, art, and organizing. Further, we are interested in literary texts including, but not limited to, various forms of literature, film, and new/social media, that participate in queering feminism(s). As a Women’s and Gender Studies Caucus-sponsored roundtable session, we invite papers that broadly engage with topics that participate in the queering of feminism(s) to analyze the commodification of intersectionality within a neoliberal context.

Papers may discuss the following questions:

  • What is the relationship between the commodification of intersectionality and neoliberalism within feminism(s)?
  • How has the queering of feminism(s) participated in resisting commodification?
  • How can literary texts contribute to dismantling binaries?

Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words.
