Women and Performance: a journal of feminist theory
Special Issue: Feminist Landscapes
Call for Papers Deadline:
What would it mean to create a feminist, transfeminist, or queer landscape? This special issue of Women and Performance asks for a diverse invocation and interpretation of the ways in which the terms “feminism” and “landscape” can partner to create what we might simply call a “feminist landscape.” This might take the form of an aesthetic play on both the shape and our understanding of the land through feminist ideals, or read as a critique of the orientation of peoples within constrictive spaces; it might be a geographical or visual re-imagination of nation through social experimentation, or a return to a promised home.
Women & Performance invites critical essays or short performance texts that examine these or other questions relevant to a critical discussion of feminst, transfeminist, and queer landscapes. Essays should be no more than 10,000 words in length and adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th Edition. Abstracts are welcome for review before the final deadline. Complete essays for consideration must be submitted by January 15th, 2010.
