Mothers and Motherhood in the Spanish-Speaking World

Demeter Press
is seeking submissions for an edited collection
Mothers and Motherhood in the Spanish-Speaking World

Editors: Marina Bettaglio and C�ndida Elizabeth Vivero Mar�n and Publication Date: 2015

Traditional  representations  of  motherhood  in  Spanish-speaking
countries  have  favoured  the image of the selfless, abnegated mother,
totally devoted to her children. As a woman whose entire life was at the
service of others, she was supposed to find fulfillment in caring for and
supporting her family.   Modelled after the Virgin Mary, this idealized
maternal role dominated, with regional differences, the Spanish and Latin
American imaginary for centuries.  Marianismo, the cultural expression of
this ideological position, demonstrates the pervasiveness of the Marian
cult in Latin America, where the dichotomy Virgin/Whore described by
Octavio Paz has played a key role in imposing normative maternal values.
Nonetheless, during the last two decades new maternal configurations have
emerged in literature, comics, cinema, music, and art.   This collection
seeks to examine counter-hegemonic discourses that stand in stark or
seeming opposition to traditional representations.  The editors seek
article-length contributions from scholars from a variety of disciplines,
including literature, cinema, music and popular culture in general.

Articles may examine (but are not limited to) the following topics:
Non-traditional mothers, step-mothers, lesbian mothers, immigrant mothers,
minority mothers,
professional  mothers,  writing  mothers,  artist  mothers,  new
stay-at-home  mothers, supermommies, sexually desiring mothers, celebrity
mothers, yummy mommies/mummies, deviant mothers, perverse mothers,
criminal mothers, drug-addicted mothers, or incarcerated mothers.
Submission Guidelines:
Please submit abstracts of 250 words and include your 50 word bio and

Deadline for Abstracts is February 1st, 2013. Please send submissions and
inquiries directly to: Marina Bettaglio and C�ndida Elizabeth Vivero Mar�n and

ACRL 2013 Conference Call for Poster Proposals

 Got an innovative library-based project, best practices to solve a problem, or unique research findings? Consider sharing them in a poster session! Posters should be an eye-catching visual representation of a topic, including graphics, tables, charts, text, and images. Presenters can communicate additional details via online handouts. Presenters share their ideas with colleagues as attendees circulate during one hour time blocks in the poster session area, located in the exhibits hall. Since space is limited at a poster session, a maximum of two presenters per poster at any one time is recommended. The Poster Session Committee looks for topics that will engage attendees during repeated presentations.


Potential topics can be seen in the program tags that are included on the proposal instructions page (link below). Poster topics from underrepresented categories are of particular interest.  Here are some examples:


* cataloging & technical services

* collections projects 

* preservation projects

* digitization

* data management and services 


Use the application form to sell your idea in a short, dynamic summary and provide a more complete discussion of the contents for the reviewersPlease plan to submit an electronic version of your poster so that it can be posted online with conference handouts. Submissions are due by November 9, 2012.

During the past few years, groups like the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, and Center for Education, have been placing great emphasis on the significance of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education. The curricula has been revised in many institutions and school districts across the country. Chapters sought for an anthology by practicing academic, public, school, special librarians, LIS faculty in the United States, Canada, and others sharing practical how-to chapters on: grant writing, community partnerships, outreach, research, and programming activities. Creative methods are sought that apply to various types of libraries and job positions.

Concise, how-to chapters words based on experience to help colleagues. Your nuts and bolts article should total 3000-3500 words. No previously published or simultaneously submitted material. One or two authors per chapter; complimentary copy as compensation, discount on more.

Please e-mail titles of  2-3 topics, each briefly described separately by September 30, 2012 with short biography sketch(s);  place STEM/Last Name on the subject line to:

Knowing what programs work saves time, effort, and resources for librarians.

Creative methods are needed to use in various types of libraries. Concise, how-to chapters 3,000-3,500 words using bullets, headings, based on experience. No previously published or simultaneously submitted material. One or two authors; one complimentary copy per chapter as compensation, discounts on additional copies.

collaboration with FUSE Labs of Microsoft Research, is pleased to
announce the first iConference Social Media Expo. The exposition is
designed to showcase exceptional interdisciplinary research and
development work from information school programs specializing in
social media. Students are asked to form interdisciplinary teams of
3-5 students to perform research, design, development or community
engagement exploring technological solutions to people’s real needs
around the theme of leveraging social media to foster lifelong
learning in everyday life. A representative team from each
participating school will be selected to attend and featured in a
presentation at a special session of the iConference in February of
2013. Visit the Social Media Expo webpage for more information:

dissertations. The winning nomination(s) will receive a cash prize of
$2,500.00 US. Applicants should have successfully defended the
doctoral dissertation and completed the doctoral degree (including all
final revisions, if any, and all final paper work) within the academic
year from July 1, 2011 to June 30 2012. The dissertation research can

leadership of the iCaucus and the iConference 2013 organizers have
arranged for a special full-day workshop on Information Privacy. This
will consist of a one-day presentation of high-quality research in the
area of information privacy. It will include 1) invited papers by
scholars from participating schools and 2) submitted papers. We invite
scholars to submit their recent research manuscripts related to
information privacy and its various sub-fields. The workshop does not
have proceedings, and therefore will not preclude the authors to
simultaneously submit their work to other conferences or journals.
Similarly, we will consider manuscripts that are currently under
review elsewhere.:
