In case you missed it, the Call for Proposals is open for the 2014 NWSA Annual Conference: Feminist Transgressions, which will be held November 13-16, 2014 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

San Juan, Puerto Rico.

That’s not a typo.

bell hooks is keynoting, so if an awesome location, a wonderful feminist professional development opportunity, and one of the most iconic cultural critics and authors of all time isn’t enough incentive to get a proposal or two in, well…we just don’t know.

“NWSA’s 2014 conference theme, Feminist Transgressions, endeavors to take up the histories, geographies, affective dimensions, and political stakes of various feminist insubordinations in the spaces they occupy: intellectual and institutional, local and global, public and intimate, by choice and under duress. Mobilizing the multivalent concept of transgression helps reframe interrogations and impositions into those locations where we labor, love, defy, resist, protest, play, create, and/or celebrate.

Subthemes:

  • Rethinking the Nation
  • Trans-ing Feminisms
  • Technologizing Futures
  • Creating Justice
  • Love and Labor”

So, get thee to the CFP and submit!
