Cripping Feminist Outrage

CFP: Cripping Feminist Outrage (9/7/12)

In an effort to continue the conversation at SEWSA 2012 about making
feminist dis/ability studies a more prominent component of Women’s and
Gender Studies in the U.S. Southeast, papers are solicited for a proposed
panel at the Southeastern Women’s Studies Association conference at
UNC-Greensboro, April 18-20, 2013. The theme of the conference is
“Outrage!: Discourses, Practices, and Politics of Protest and Social
Transformation.” This panel will consider the ways crip feminism might
contribute to such a theme. The definition of “cripping feminist outrage”
is open for interpretation, and potential panelists are invited to be
creative, playful, sassy, strident, irate, “mad,” or any combination of the
above in formulating these paper proposals. Likewise, a wide range of
genres is acceptable: creative nonfiction, critical media studies, literary
analyses, theoretical inquiries, philosophical treatises, and fierce
polemics are all welcome.

Email abstracts of approximately 100 words, along with a CV, to Merri Lisa
Johnson ( by September 7, 2012. For more details
