Nasty Women and Bad Hombres: Gendered Disruptions in the 2016 Presidential Election and the Ghost of Susan B. Anthony

Call for Book Chapters:

*Editors:*

Christine Kray, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Anthropology, Rochester
Institute of Technology (cakgss@rit.edu)

Hinda Mandell, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, School of Communication,
Rochester Institute of Technology

*Synopsis:*

Gendered disruptions with historical echoes played prominently into the
volatile 2016 presidential election between Hillary Clinton and Donald
Trump. The campaign featured historic elements from the beginning. It
marked the first time that a woman was nominated to lead a major political
party in the race for president of the United States. With the potential of
Clinton to crack the “highest, hardest glass ceiling,” ritual activity
reached new levels at the Rochester, NY gravesite of Susan B. Anthony, the
nineteenth-century activist who dedicated her life’s work toward women’s
suffrage. Throughout the year, visitors paid tribute and left tokens of
gratitude, and in what has become a new Election Day tradition—propelled by
social media—on the day of the New York State primary in April 2016,
visitors affixed “I Voted” stickers to her tombstone. Plans were laid for
ceremonial gatherings at her gravesite on Election Day and the day after.

Throughout the 2008 primary campaign and again in 2015, Clinton appeared
reticent to position herself as a woman candidate. And yet, events pushed
gender front and center, conjuring up memories of earlier suffragist
struggles. In April 2016, Trump accused Clinton of “playing the woman
card.” In July, when Clinton accepted the Democratic Party’s nomination,
she noted that her mother had been born on the very day that Congress
passed the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which would give women the
right to vote. Then, just weeks before the election, after audio recordings
were released in which Donald Trump boasted of committing sexual assault,
and polls revealed that women were increasingly rejecting Trump’s
candidacy, a #RepealThe19th social media hashtag was created. While Anthony
had not lived to see the 19th Amendment ratified, she and her fellow
suffragists wrote the language that would enfranchise women in 1920. And
suddenly this nineteenth-century figure and the ideals she fought for
became increasingly relevant in an election that saw a woman candidate and
women voters as key players. The website, www.iwaited96years.com, features
women who were born before the ratification of the 19th Amendment who
intended to vote for Hillary Clinton. Video “history lessons” and memes
circulated on social media as contributors aimed to teach others about the
historical advances of women, implying that the work remains unfinished.

As an interdisciplinary project, this book invites contributions from
historians, anthropologists, sociologists, political theorists,
journalists, and media and public history scholars to investigate how
public memory of Susan B. Anthony and the 19th Amendment has shaped
narratives of the 2016 presidential election, and the ways in which the
campaign has brought fresh attention to her work and life. This book
project speaks to the ways in which politics are not merely pragmatic, but
are always enveloped in personal and historical imaginations. Through our
electoral engagement, conversations, and voting practices, we reach out to
revered historical figures, engage in practices of deep symbolic
significance, and position ourselves within a grand historical
trajectory. Possible
chapter topics include:

·      Susan B. Anthony’s grave as a place of pilgrimage during the
election season

·      Intersectionality of race and gender—for example, how the
complicated friendship of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass was
invoked in the competition between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama

·      The #RepealThe19th social media hashtag

·      Suffragist fashion and Hillary Clinton’s sartorial choices

·      Bad hombres and “locker room talk”: Masculinist discourse and
spectacle

·      The role of women voters as potentially holding the balance of power
in this election

·      Efforts to disenfranchise women voters who support Clinton

·      Ways in which some women have coalesced around Clinton’s historic
nomination

·      Public memory of Susan B. Anthony, feminism and anti-feminism this
election season

·      Women who opposed the 19th Amendment and women supporters of Donald
Trump—Are there similarities in rhetoric, belief, or socio-economic
position?

·      Theorizing of feminism and misogyny in public spaces on the campaign
trail

·      Generations: Are younger women inspired by historical women’s rights
activists?

·      History lessons + social media: Positioning Clinton within a century
of women’s rights

·      “Nasty women,” “grab him by the ball-ots,” “pussy grabs back”

·      Would SBA have voted for HRC? A close reading of her writings and
speeches

·      Pronouncements from the (pro-life) Susan B. Anthony List about
Clinton’s candidacy

Introduction

Management Education is undergoing a sea of changes as management institutes across the world are encouraging their faculty members to develop innovative teaching practises that can sufficiently impact student learning. There is a recurring need expressed by corporates too, that management students should be better prepared to handle the hypercompetitive business environment and simultaneously address the challenge of technology impacting growth and survival strategies. Thus, management institutes are constantly transforming existing teaching and learning practises, besides developing more innovative ones. These practises range from traditional case studies, group projects, role plays, etc. to more evolved ones like gaming technologies, case based simulations, international virtual assignments and so on. Such techniques have resulted in improved learning for students, yet have imposed challenges in terms of assessing the actual impact, understanding the variables affecting delivery, and measuring the value added to the companies these students’ work for. Besides, there is an emergent realization that teaching, learning and pedagogies form an integrated perspective. Views on the nature of knowledge, its creation and dissemination, learners’ perspective of knowledge, assessment tasks and discourse patterns, and the roles and relationships of teachers and learners have to be understood in totality to study the overall impact on management education.

This book aims to discuss perspectives on innovations happening in teaching and learning practises across the world. The editors seek chapters exploring the evolution and the development of new techniques, operant factors, constraints faced in delivery, challenges of assessment, readiness of the students or participants, the changing role of faculty members or instructors, and educational and social repercussions.

Under the Shade of an Olive Tree: Conversations on Greek Diaspora

Edited by Litsa Chatzivasileiou and Anna Carastathis

What do contemporary Greek diasporic experiences contribute to the
broader study of diasporas, migration, and to feminist, cultural and postcolonial studies?
How do they challenge nationalistic discourses and ideologies of “home,”
citizenship, belonging, common history, roots and homogeneous cultural
identity? What theoretical models, methodologies, and approaches may
productively be used to study Greek diasporas in their complex gendered,
racialized and class dimensions in the 20th and 21st centuries? What
geographic, geopolitical, and generational differences matter? What experiences
of inclusion and exclusion condition cultural and communal belonging in the
national/diasporic imaginary? Considering the sparsity of book-length
treatments of the contemporary Greek diaspora we invite contributions to an
edited volume, which explores diverse Greek migratory experiences in an
interdisciplinary manner.

While the current crisis may be triggering a new wave of Greek emigration,
Greece itself has become “home” to recent immigrants and refugees.
Historical diasporas (Jewish–Sephardic and Roumaniote–Roma, Armenian,
Muslim, Turkish) have been constructed as the silenced Other within the
modern Greek nation-state and its ideology of cultural homogeneity.
Greece’s postcolonial history of population exchange and “repatriation” of
ethnic Greeks from Asia Minor and northern Africa reaffirms Edward Said’s
argument that unitary nations are contingent on the constant wandering of
diverse peoples, and the entangling of cultural roots/routes. Our edited
collection will examine the cross-pollination of emigrant and immigrant
communities in the crossing of national, geographic and cultural borders,
and the inhabiting of in-between spaces.

We are especially interested in contributions that explore issues of
diaspora and immigration through the prisms of gender, sexuality,
racialization, religion, nation, region, age, generation, among others. We
invite diachronic, historically-grounded contributions which examine the
connections of political and economic crises to diasporas. Hopeful that our
volume will reflect the diversity and complexity of migratory routes, we
encourage submissions from/about smaller as well as larger centres of
diaspora. We are also interested in approaches that expand our view beyond the
modern Greek nation-state as single “origin” of diaspora.

Taking an interdisciplinary approach, we invite academic articles, creative
non-fiction, literary works, and social movement texts. We welcome
contributions from people of all genders and any ethnicity, but which are
relevant to Greek diaspora from a feminist perspective. We hope to elicit
works from marginalized voices within Greek communities, including
those of women;
lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people; people with
disabilities; youth and elders; mixed roots people; people of non-Orthodox
or minoritized faiths and spiritualities, as well as atheists.

Relevant topics include (but are not limited to):

– intersectional perspectives on Greek diasporic cultures, communities,
literary and creative works, political activism, etc.;

– theoretical pieces which situate Greek diaspora(s) in the context of
feminist, cultural and postcolonial studies;

– accounts of reverse, circular, and multiple migrations and diasporic
routes/roots;

– historical accounts of diasporas in Greece (Jewish, Roma, Armenian,
Turkish, Balkan, African, Asian, etc.) in relation to contemporary Greek
emigration;

– theorizations of the relationship between nationalism, population
exchange, and diasporas;

– explorations of gendered tropes and rhetorics of nationalist discourse;

– discussions of homophobia and its effects on gay, lesbian, bisexual, and
transgender Greeks in the diaspora;

– discussions of projects and politics of belonging and deconstructions of
essentialist notions of Greek culture;

– critical perspectives on “community” (κοινότητα), “culture” (κουλτούρα),
“family” (οικογένεια), “sameness despite dispersion” (ομογένεια);

– analyses of racialization, ethnic and religious identities in “host”
societies and diasporic communities;

– explorations of intergenerational conflicts and inheritances;

– literary, creative non-fiction, autobiographical and testimonial works
about Greek diasporic experiences, hybrid cultures and hyphenated
identities (e.g., Afro-Hellenic);

– accounts of refugee populations and their displacement from the modern
Greek state;

– auto-ethnographies and creative performances of exilic, nostalgic, split,
and other subjectivities; longings and belongings;

– takes on popular representations and stereotypes of Greek culture in
media, film, advertising, television and music;

– discussions of the impact of Greek diasporic people on cultures of
relocation, indigenous societies, and multicultural and multiethnic
communities;

– analyses of interconnected phenomena of diaspora and neoliberal
globalization;

– critical responses to crisis, xenophobia and nationalist ideologies in
Greece in particular and in Europe in general;

– discussions of North/South, core/periphery politics and their
relationship to the crisis of the concept of “Europe”.
