I had hoped that in this transition period between school and employment, I could be fabulously productive, academically speaking, and apply to all sorts of conferences and submit lots of things for publication. In reality, lying flat on my back after moving is a lot of fun. I’m bummed that I can’t submit an essay to the New Directions in Feminism and Human Rights issue of the International Journal of Feminist Politics (I think that’s the journal name, don’t quote me) but it’s due Saturday and I’m going to be in NC. I thought I could manage 8000 words on human rights approaches to homosexuality in the developing world but alas, no cigar. If you have an idea you can crank out by this weekend, or something 8000 words or less already written, you should submit! They’re looking for a really broad range of perspectives and I think it’ll be an amazing issue. Also coming up, deadline for Emory’s gender violence conference (proposals due, not full papers).
