Feminisms and Leadership: Psychology of Women and Equalities Review Special Issue

Call for papers
Psychology of Women and Equalities Review Special Issue
Feminisms and Leadership

‘Leadership’ is a highly regulative practice, and is pervasive in our personal and political realms. Under late capitalism, academic and popular discourse continues to represent leadership in gender essentialist terms, through the figure of the ‘great man’. Notions of the ‘great leader’ are rarely tied to colonial domination, which consolidated leadership as the natural and legitimate enterprise of white, ‘civilizing’ masculinity (Mohanty, 2004). This is reflected in the ongoing proliferation of leadership as a marker of individual stature, and the reproduction of white patriarchal power in global corporate and political spaces.

Feminist attention has been dedicated to understanding differential leadership experiences within this highly gendered terrain. However, a wealth of feminist literature continues to promote women’s leadership in these spaces without dismantling the spaces themselves. Moreover, unchecked histories of racism, sexism, classism, and ableism function to keep notions of ‘successful’ leadership firmly within the confines of dominant globalizing forces.

The call: “Do not become the master’s tool!” (Ahmed, 2017, p. 160), inspires the commitment that we will never use the master’s tools (Lorde, 1984) to resist these forces. Following this commitment, current feminist work in psychology calls for collective feminist leadership and resistance through ‘feminist counter-publics’ (Rúdólfsdóttir & Jóhannsdóttir, 2018). More broadly, Lewis and Pullen (2018) call for the strengthening of feminist work in organizational studies, arguing: “…we have never needed it more than we do now” (p. 108).

In the spirit of these calls to action, this special issue invites feminist work that rewrites notions of ‘successful’ leadership in psychology and related academic and non-academic disciplines. Contributions may include, but are not limited to work that considers:

*   Intersections of race and class, gender, sexuality, and/or disability, with leadership.
*   Leadership in contexts of feminist activism, movements, and political resistance.
*   Reimagining leadership in/outside of elite or corporate contexts.
*   Bad or ‘toxic’ leadership.

Contributions may include original articles (up to 3000-7000 words), observations and commentaries (up to 2500 words) or creative pieces (up to 2000 words). Submissions will be subject to the usual peer review process. The deadline for submissions is January 7th 2019. Queries can be sent to editor.powsr@gmail.com Lucy Thompson (aymorluc@msu.edu<mailto:aymorluc@msu.edu>).

Journal of New Librarianship

Strange Circulations: Affect and the Library

A Special Issue of Library Trends.

Guest Editors

Kate Adler, Metropolitan College of New York

Lisa Sloniowski, York University

 

Nature and Scope of Proposed Topic

From the unspoken emotional depth of our conversations at the reference desk, to the ambient politics of our spaces, to our engagement with public memory and knowledge production, affect fundamentally undergirds everyday life in the library. The editors of this special issue contend that the theoretical framework afforded by the “affective turn” can provide a sharp tool and generative language for naming, attending to and interrogating so much of what is alive beneath the surface in our work.

The attempt to theorize affect however, has proven a confusing project. Perhaps the first problem is that the concept itself is hard to define. In a special issue of Archival Science on the subject, Marika Cifor suggests that the affective turn

represents more than just making affects, emotions and feelings legitimate objects of scholarly inquiry. …  At their core, definitions of affect understand it as a force that creates a relationship (conscious or otherwise) between a body (individual or collective) and the world (10).

She goes on to argue that affect is a socially, culturally and historically constructed category. As a theoretical framework, affect, she says, can provide a space to think about the interrelations between the psychic, the body and the social (10). Affective forces are crucial to our sense of place in the world, and affect is key to to the ways in which power is “constituted, circulated and mobilized”(Cifor 10). 

Archives were a logical starting point for theorizing affect in the broad context of LIS. The emotional complexity of memory, of nostalgia, and history are pronounced in the archive. Libraries, however, remain under-theorized in the literature. This issue of Library Trends extends this new form of cultural criticism to libraries and library workers specifically. Working with Cifor’s definition, we might ask: how are libraries and librarians also attached to, or caught inside, affective forces?  Libraries are (often) more open and chaotic places than are archives. The web of affect in a library, therefore, has different stakes than in archives. Affect provides a lens on so much that is invisible – white supremacy, politics of gender and sexuality, complex class  dynamics, invisible labor, collective fantasies of knowledge and order – and making space to explore it can perform useful work in our field, bringing to the fore that which is sometimes obscured in our day to day practice and professional discourse.

More broadly, in “Strange Circulations: Affect and the Library,” we also hope to make a new intervention in wider interdisciplinary conversations regarding the affective register of myriad nodes of work, life and knowledge production.  

List of Potential Articles

The following is a list of possible themes that we hope might provoke writers to share their work with us. Our hope is that authors tie a clearly articulated theory of affect to a vision of librarianship, particularly one that doesn’t lose sight of the material and historical consequences of our work. This list is not meant to be exhaustive or prescriptive. Ideally we would have a range of articles across most fields and sectors of librarianship.

  • Affective encounters with students, patrons, or faculty
  • Affective networks in digital librarianship and digital libraries
  • Memory and library collections: decolonizing, indigenizing, queering
  • Censorship/Filtering debates and the affect of moral panic
  • Radical cataloging as affective labour
  • Bibliographic space and the organizing of affect
  • Affective flow and the architecture and design of libraries.
  • Creating community space
  • Intimacy and aesthetics of embodiment in the library
  • Librarianship and emotional labor
  • Affects of trauma: homeless patrons, overdosing patrons, abandoned children, library anxiety, sexual assaults in libraries
  • Public service and the ethics of care work
  • Affect in narratives of the “future of the library”
  • Affective professional attachments: library neutrality, neoliberalism, neo-utilitarianism
  • Affective fantasies of libraries: libraries as symbols, librarian stereotypes and subjectivities,  imaginary libraries
  • Affects of subversion and transgression, rebellion, revolution, resistance, reading
  • Affect, libraries, & theoretical engagements: Queer, Critical Disability Studies, Critical Race Studies, Anti-Colonialism, Feminism, Political Economy

List of Possible Formats

  • Scholarly/research articles – theoretically informed analyses, historical explorations, and/or articles based in qualitative or mixed research methods
  • Photographic essays – (black and white only)
  • Book reviews/interviews/oral histories/roundtable reports

The editors are open to considering other formats although we have a preference for those listed above. If you have an idea for another format feel free to contact the editors to discuss. Complete articles are expected to be in the 4,000-10,000 word range. More information about the stylistic guidelines can be found here: Author Instructions for the Preparation of Articles

Abstracts and proposals should be no more than 500 words. Please include a brief author biography with contact details as well.
