DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 31/09/17! Uni SA Gender, Sex, and Sexuality Studies conference: ‘Art(i)culations of Violence’ Special Issue


Writing From Below ‘Art(i)culations of Violence’ Special Issue

Call for Submissions

Presenters from the 2017 South Australian Postgraduate and ECR Gender, Sex, and Sexuality Studies conference: ‘Art(i)culations of Violence’ are invited to submit full papers for a peer-reviewed special issue of Writing From Below.

The theme, Art(i)culations of Violence: Gender, sex, sexuality and the politics of injury and revivification, aims to explore the multitude of ways that violence occurs, be it institutional, personal, epistemic, discursive, cultural, economic, symbolic, and/as physical. We invite presenters to consider ‘articulations’ not only as the acts or act of articulating, pronounciation and enunciation, but also physical formations, motions and movements, including but exceeding intellectual, political and artistic movements. Building on the theme of Dr Katrina Jaworski’s inspiring keynote speech at our 2016 conference, Intersections, we encourage presenters to engage with Stuart Hall’s theory of articulation – a means of living ‘in and with difference’ through strategic alliances that do not ‘substitute difference for its mirror opposite’ but encourage us ‘to rethink both’ (Hall 1985, p. 93) – and the ways this may relate to (or articulate with) concepts of performativity.

We invite both traditional and non-traditional submissions under the following categories:

  • Full Critical Papers based on Conference Presentations (4000-8000 words)
  • Poster / Visual art submissions (please include 250 word ERA research statement)
  • Creative Writings from ‘Art(i)culating the Body’ Workshop Attendees (up to 3000 words, plus please include 250 word ERA research statement) 

    If submitting Visual or Creative works, please see the ERA Research statement guidelines in Appendix C.  

All submissions are due on 31st September 2017.

Please register as an author to submit.

Submission for the special issue indicates your willingness to assist with peer reviewing.
