This platform provides a linkage between local and international academics and practitioners, and among institutions, society and the world. HKAECT International Conference 2019 aims to enhance the contribution of applied research and scholarship; support the development and application of new conceptual frameworks; improve the quality of contemporary practices; and encourage the continuous revisit of theories.

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>).

Feminist Pilgrimage: Journeys of Discovery

Personal essay contributions are desired for a proposed edited book: Feminist Pilgrimage: Journeys of Discovery.

Editor: Stacy Russo, Librarian/Associate Professor, Santa Ana College, Santa Ana, California, stacy@love-activism.com

How is “Feminist Pilgrimage” Being Defined?

Within this context, a feminist pilgrimage is understood as one of the following:

• a journey taken to visit an important feminist landmark, artwork, or individual.

• traveling to a destination as a means of radical self-care, discovery, and/or healing, such as returning to one’s home land; taking a solo road trip; going on a personal or group retreat; or making a journey to a place that has deep personal meaning.

• a pilgrimage taken for personal or professional reasons that is performed with a feminist vision.

How is Feminism Being Defined?

There are many definitions and understandings of feminism. One’s understanding may also evolve over time through personal and collective experiences. For the purposes of allowing for the most self-expression and freedom in the creative process, the editor is not providing an overarching definition.

Guidelines

All genders are welcome as contributors. Only non-fiction, first-person accounts are desired. Writing should be in the form of a personal essay. Text-only works and works including artwork with text will be considered. Fictional pieces and poetry will not be accepted. Original works that have not been previously published are preferred. Previously published essays will be considered, but you will need to gain permissions for re-publication and provide proof of the permission. Writing should be free of highly theoretical language and academic jargon. Footnotes and references, if any, should be minor. Tone should be for a crossover general and academic audience.

Proposals

Please submit proposals of up to 500 words by November 1, 2018. Include an author’s bio of up to 150 words. Within your proposal, please provide a clear representation of what your essay will entail. What was your pilgrimage? Where did you travel? What did you discover? Why was the pilgrimage important to you? How does it relate to your understanding of feminism? After review of your proposal, you will be contacted regarding your submission. Please do not submit completed works at this stage. Send your proposal to stacy@love-activism.com

If your proposal is accepted, your final essay must be 1,500 – 4,000 words and submitted publication-ready.

STEM Education in US Prisons

This edited volume, STEM Education in US Prisons, is a first book-length attempt to elaborate theories and models of science education in prisons. It addresses science, technology, engineering and mathematics education in for-credit and non-credit programs operating at a range of security levels within adult prisons, juvenile facilities, jails, and detention centers in the United States. The book will cover a range of science disciplines and topics, including biology, ecology, physics, astronomy, mathematics, chemistry, computer sciences, engineering, earth sciences, psychology, and more.

We are interested in two types of papers: (a) essays on the social rationales and conceptual issues of teaching science in prisons, especially in relation to science and citizenship, and (b) essays for a longer section on model science education programs in prisons, including contextualization within contemporary science pedagogy. The co-editors will be particularly interested in papers that incorporate and respond to voices of imprisoned students, with strict attention to IRB requirements (documentation mandatory). Incarcerated or formerly incarcerated contributors are especially welcome, with an emphasis on field expertise rather than witness. The volume’s emphasis lies on the United States, but we may consider international essays for comparison.

Chapter essays will be limited to 5-7,000 words, in APA style. Submit a 250-300 word abstract by January 15, 2019 (or full paper if available) together with a short bio. We will notify prospective contributors by January 30, 2019. Completed draft papers will be due by July 1, 2019. For further information contact Joe Lockard (Joe.Lockard@asu.edu) and Jannette Carey (jcarey@princeton.edu).

The volume co-editors are Jannette Carey (Princeton), Joe Lockard (Arizona State University), Jill Stockwell (Princeton), and Tsafrir Mor (Arizona State University).

This volume is under advance contract to SUNY Press
