Feministas Unidas Inc.

March 2019 Newsletter
   
 Hola a todos una vez más. Me disculpo por enviaros tres correos en tan
pocos días, pero así como vienen, os los envío para que podáis planear con
tiempo vuestra agenda académica y profesional.

Primero, recordaros que en solo 4 días se vence el plazo para enviar una
propuesta para el panel de Feministas Unidas en el MLA de este año 2019 en
Seattle. Aquí va la información una última vez:

1. MLA 2020 Call for Papers

Feminista Unidas Guaranteed Session:
Intervenciones feministas en la era digital
Where: Seattle
When: January 9-12, 2020

El campo de las humanidades en la era digital, revolución tecnológica,
inteligencia artificial, Big Data, entre otras, conlleva a utilizar
componentes tecnológicos con el fin de expandir el conocimiento a través
de nuevas formas de investigación, el surgimiento y desarrollo de otras
preguntas, además de intervenir con formas alternativas dentro de este
campo de estudio. Esta mesa tiene como objetivo dialogar en cómo la
incorporación de intervenciones feministas (prácticas, teorías y/o
metodologías) con la tecnología (componentes digitales) han permitido
resistir y/o desafiar sistemas patriarcales dentro y fuera de la academia
y que el feminismo permee distintas esferas de la vida a través del
proceso de análisis, creación de proyectos/plataformas, como
posteriormente en la interpretación de los resultados. Esto conlleva a
reflexionar en cómo las intervenciones feministas con el uso de la
tecnología, influyen en el presente y en el futuro de las humanidades ¿Qué
valores deben de ser esenciales en estas formas de estudios y los cuales
deben de incluirse. ¿Qué proyectos son un ejemplo de estas intervenciones?
Y ¿cómo la tecnología ha ayudado a expandir los estudios feministas?


Send a 250-word abstract (in English, Spanish, or Portuguese) to Sylvia
Fernández: sferna109@gmail.com and Tina Escaja, tina.escaja@uvm.edu by
March 15th, 2019. Must be a member of MLA and Feministas Unidas, Inc. in

1) Balancing Acts: Academia's Gendered Cost of Living
Description: This roundtable examines how women and men pay dearly for
degrees in "feminized" fields. We know about students' economic debts,
which women have more of, while earning fewer dollars for repayment. What
about the other expenses, psychological and social, of seeking degrees,
pursuing jobs, maintaining community, and supporting family? How do you
decide what load the budget can bear, negotiate spending, and the bottom
line in these venues? 250-word proposal; two-page c.v.; no title
needed.
Send proposals to: Michelle A. Massé (mmasse@lsu.edu)

2) All Too Human: Gender and Aging in Academic Workforces
Co-sponsored with the Age Studies Transdisciplinary Connections Forum
Description: This collaborative roundtable examines aging/gender in
academic life stages. We are interested in the non-linear temporal
torsions in academia's timeline entangling chronological age and career
stage. The Neverland of graduate studies/contingent labor that suggests
one is too young for adult identity, mid-career responsibilities, as well
as retirement's Promised Land, which may be unenterable, but is also yoked
to being too old to continue working, are some key examples. 250-word
proposal; two-page c.v.; no title needed.
Send proposals to: Michelle A. Massé (mmasse@lsu.edu

3) Being Online: Risks and Rewards for Women in Academe
Description: Gift or poison? Source of solidarity or star system? Means
of connection and collaboration or more uncounted work? This guaranteed
roundtable will build on the conference theme of “being human” by
addressing the risks and rewards of being online for women in academe. How
is social media used to counter and/or reinforce institutional inequities?
What unique opportunities and/or threats—professional, political,
personal—does it pose? 250-word proposal; two-page c.v.; no title needed
