GENDER RESISTANCE
 =

Guest Editors:  Evgenia Sifaki & Angeliki Spiropoulou.
 =

Socio-historical developments that have characterised the turn of the prese=
nt century, such as increasing globalisation, migration and transnationalis=
m, new technologies, the growth of the beauty industry and the medicalisati=
on of the body, as well as various initiatives in equality and human rights=
 legislation, have ushered in new conditions of experiencing and thinking s=
ubjectivity. This issue seeks to interrogate the new experiences and concep=
tualisations of gender and sexualities that have been part of these transfo=
rmations. Specifically, notwithstanding the assimilation of traditional fem=
inist demands in official cultural discourses, what new forms of resistance=
 to conventional gender discourses, categories and practices, and inversely=
, what novel manifestations of resilient gender asymmetries have emerged in=
 this allegedly =91post-feminist=92 era?
 =

We invite contributions that address the modes in which contemporary Anglop=
hone literary, visual and popular culture refract and respond to the questi=
on of gender and sexualities today. Themes that could be addressed include,=
 but are not restricted to:
  =


novel gender formations and experiences in contemporary Anglophone literatu=
re and culture
gender and genre
the response of contemporary women writers to the gender conditions of the =
21st century
gender and racial, ethnic and religious minorities, transnational communiti=
es and diasporas
new ways of performing gender =

gender, sexualities and the law
reproduction and new reproductive technologies
reconfigurations of gendered private and public spaces
developments in theories of gender and sexuality
 =

 short bio  (300 words) as well as all inquiries regarding this issue, shou=
ld be sent to both guest editors: Evgenia Sifaki  at <evsifaki at gmail.com > =
and Angeliki Spiropoulou at <aspirop at uop.gr> or angelikispiropoulou at hotmail=
