CFP: Subsidia on Microaggressions, Harassment, and Abuse--Medieval and Modern

Journal: Medieval Feminist Forum
Editors: Jennifer Edwards and Linda Mitchell
Submission deadline for abstracts: July 30, 2016
Description: »This special issue, which has come out of discussions among the Society for Medieval Feminist Scholarship Listserv, Advisory Board, and roundtable session at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo, will present articles that investigate and interrogate the ways in which predatory sexuality, misogyny, racism, and other forms of gender harassment experienced and perpetrated in the Middle Ages are also reflected today in the experiences of contemporary medieval scholars. While we aim to focus on scholarly issues rather than personal narrations, these are not limited to traditional forms of academic research; indeed, scholarly investigations of the effects of microaggression in the classroom and curricula, along with some posited solutions, would also be welcomed.«
