CFP: “Feminism Online,” FiR’s Open Call for Thematic Blog Submissions!
Don’t forget: we want to hear your responses to @ the Table: “Feminism Online”!
Having explored what it means to be undone by the feminist other (Xochitl Alvizo), why we engage in public writing and theology (Grace Ji-Sun Kim), what constitutes feminist and academic blogging (Mary E. Hunt), and finally why we engage in the intersections between feminism and religion on a platform like FiR (Joseph Marchal), now we need you.
We invite you, our readers, to reflect on aspects of the conversation and your own experiences on this topic in the form of a blog submission. The due date for submissions is (now extended) 1 October 2015 and pieces must adhere to our submissions guidelines.
Have any questions? Contact us at [email protected]
We look forward to hearing from you!
What counts as feminism on the internet? What happens when religion is brought into the conversation? And most importantly for the Feminism In Religion Forum (FiR), what does it mean to engage in this process with an academic lens?
@ the Table and our partnered open-call consider the stakes and challenges that arise when “feminism” and “religion” come together in online blogging as a process of critique. Using Xochitl Alvizo’s “Being Undone by the Other” to begin the discussion, this conversation considers in what ways an expanded definition of critique can and cannot allow us to be undone by feminist others.
Using this as a launchpad, the partnered open-call seeks submissions that incorporate aspects of @ the Table’s analysis in their own blog pieces on what it means to engage in feminist conversations about religion on the internet.
