  • Calls for Papers

Women and Performance: A Journal of Feminist Theory

Special Issue: Performing Excess

Deadline: 10/15/2004

We propose in this special issue of Women and Performance: A Journal of Feminist Theory to address performances in and beyond theater (mostly beyond) that assert excessiveness as a radical alternative to overdetermined structures of social, cultural, and political meaning. We invite papers that examine how performative excessive behaviors (perhaps especially, though not necessarily, dieting, shopping, and plastic surgery) affirm the status quo and reinforce false notions of “normalcy,” rather than subvert or disrupt the concept of the “normal.”

Postcolonial Studies

Special Issue: Digital Culture

Guest Editor: Mark Poster

Deadline: 10/30/2004

Postcolonial studies is heavily affected by processes of globalization. Among these trends is the spread of networked computing and digital culture, from email and websites, from Usenet to massively multiple online games and digital art, from net news journals to blogs. Digital culture also affects the world labor market as workers around the globe are recruited into high technology jobs as diverse as assembly line production of computers, homeworked programming of software, and call centers where workers are taught the rudiments of foreign (mostly American) cultures to enable telephone support for products and services. New media, in short, are now global. This special issue inquires into the consequences of such phenomena for the postcolonial condition.

Fibreculture Journal

Special Issue: Mobility, New Social Intensities, and the Coordinates of Digital Networks

Deadline: 9/22/04

This issue of the Fibreculture Journal will be concerned with documenting, and thinking about, the new mobile intensities allowed by digital networks. We are very interested in receiving contributions dealing with mobile telephony. However, we are also interested in contributions that deal with related or other forms of digital mobility. In addition to mobile telephony, contributions might include discussions of wireless networking, the folding of the Internet into other technical networks, or the complexity of relations between older and newer social networks when both are brought into the coordinates of digital networks.
