CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Status of Women in the Profession Committee and Feminist Theory and Religious Reflection Group

Call for Papers: 

We are interested in feminist explorations of the work/life balance and the structures that sustain the academic industrial complex; heteronormativity; managing expectations amid diverse cultural and institutional contexts; perfectionism; power in the academy; competition and solidarity between senior and junior scholars; negotiating our current economic climate and job strain; further clarity on what “balance” means; critical reflections on paid and unpaid labor.

Within the context of feminist theory and religious reflection, we specifically solicit papers that address the following themes:

• Labor of love; labor of sorrow
• The superwoman myth: What religious ideals are driving the work ethic and the expectation that women have to do it all?
• How to theorize and open up spaces that reject the either/or conundrums that truncate our imaginations as cultural workers?
• Expenditures in the academy and cultivating refusals: feminist praxis as resistance, sustenance, and flourishing
• Ethics of care and contingency (adjunct positions within the academy)
