CFP – Disability and Girlhood: Transnational Perspectives

Special Issue of
Girlhood Studies
An Interdisciplinary Journal

For a special issue of Girlhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal,
“Disability and Girlhood: Transnational Perspectives” we invite
manuscripts (no longer than 6,500 words including the abstract,
article, bio, acknowledgements and notes (if any), and references)
that explore the critical intersections and tensions between the two contemporary fields, girlhood studies and disability studies; thus far this has been inadequately explored in both theoretical literature and empirical studies. This exploration is necessary because disability studies can actively disrupt normative notions of girlhood in transnational contexts mediated by the intersectional politics of identity and constituted through ableist social, political, and economic hierarchies that have concrete implications for developing transformative social policy.

CFP: Special Issue of *Jeunesse* on Mobility

Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures invites essay submissions for a special issue addressing mobility in relation to youth texts and culture(s). We welcome essays that consider registers of race, class, gender, and disability. Essays should be between 6,000 and 9,000 words in length and prepared for blind peer-review.

Mobility invites us to think about bodies, identities, and agency from diverse disciplinary and methodological perspectives. Im/mobility can be many things: geographic, physical, ideological, imaginative, temporal, social. What are some of the ways that we might analyze this amorphous—in fact, mobile—topic in light of young people, their texts, and their cultures?

Submissions are requested by: 30 June 2015.

Topics may include:

  • Dancing children
  • Border crossings and home(land) security systems
  • Movement as performance/choreography
  • Narratives of upward/downward mobility
  • Transformations through mobility/mobilizing transformations
  • Mobile audiences and audiences of mobility
  • Movement as affect and affect as “being moved”
  • Planes, trains, and automobiles
  • Immigration and generations
  • Ability and impairment
  • Kinesthetics or kin-aesthetics
  • Mobilizing youth polities
  • Digital movement and mobile communication
  • Play and playgrounds
  • Containment and freedom of movement

Inquiries may be directed to Larissa Wodtke, Managing Editor:
