Workshop: Reframing Intersectionality in Critical Race Theory

June 14-17th, Brownsover Hall Hotel, Rugby, UK

http://www.brownsoverhall.co.uk/


Led by Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw and Professor Devon Carbado


We are running a three day workshop that will bring together scholars
engaged in discussions of intersectionality in the field of Black
Studies and Critical Race Theory. This event will feature a range of
scholarly exploration and analysis on this topic, discussions led by
Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw and Professor Devon Carbado. The aim of
the event is to work towards creating an edited volume Reframing
Intersectionality to be part of the Blackness in Britain book series
published by Rowman and Littlefield International.


At Professor Crenshaw's request the numbers attending the event will
be strictly limited and there are only 8 places available.


Attendees will be invited to contribute to this workshop and
publication. If you want to attend you are invited to prepare a paper
of at least 1500 words on an intersectionality topic to circulate by
Monday 30th May and to deliver a presentation for discussion. However,
you are not required to submit a paper to attend. This is a unique
opportunity to work closely with colleagues on an important
intellectual project and build networks for future work.


Price: £345 inclusive of accommodation and food (lunch from 14th to
breakfast on the 17th inclusive) during the 3 day event. You can book
by following this link, whilst there are still places remaining

AQA 2016 RUTH BENEDICT BOOK PRIZE COMPETITION

AQA 2016 RUTH BENEDICT BOOK PRIZE COMPETITION (deadline June 13)

The Association for Queer Anthropology (AQA) is proud to announce the
2016 Ruth Benedict Book Prize Competition for outstanding
anthropological scholarship on a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender,
or queer topic.

The Ruth Benedict Book Prize is presented each year at the American
Anthropological Association's annual meeting to acknowledge excellence
in a scholarly book written from an anthropological perspective about
a topic that engages issues and theoretical perspectives relevant to
LGBTQ studies. The Prize is awarded in each of two separate
categories, one for a single-authored monograph and another for an
edited volume.

Submissions may be on any topic related to lesbians, gay men,
bisexuals, transgender people, or other gender/sexual formations and
categories from any world culture area. Topics may include the study
of normativity, queer theory, and the social/historical construction
of sexual and gender identities, discourses, and categories. Authors
may represent any scholarly discipline, but the material submitted
must engage anthropological theories and methods. Submissions may be
self-nominated or may be sent by a press or another person.

Books submitted for the competition must have a publication date of
2015 or 2016 and may not have been submitted previously. Page proofs
of books scheduled for 2016 publication are acceptable but must
include a letter from the publisher confirming the anticipated
publication date of 2016.

To nominate a work, please submit one copy of the book or edited
volume to each of the four committee members listed below, with the
author or editor's name, mailing address, and email address, and
telephone number printed clearly on a separate cover letter indicating
that it is a submission for the Ruth Benedict Book Prize.

All submissions must be received by Monday, June 13, 2016.

Send inquiries to Ruth Benedict Book Prize Chair, Naisargi Dave
(naisargi.dave@utoronto.ca)

2015 Ruth Benedict Book Prize Committee Members: Jara Carrington,
Noelle Stout, Naisargi Dave, and Rudolf Gaudio.
