CALL FOR CHAPTERS — Women’s Caucus Lobby Activism Book
PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE: October 1, 2015
EDITORS: Karen Keifer-Boyd, Linda Hoeptner-Poling, Sheri Klein, Wanda Knight, and Adetty Pérez de Miles
ABOUT THE BOOK: The book is based on the National Art Education Association’s Women’s Caucus Lobby themes and activism since 2008.
NOTE: Authors do not need to have attended Lobby sessions to submit chapters. Beyond the NAEA Women’s Caucus sessions, meetings, and events that reside within the formal protocol of the NAEA, the Lobby Activism session serves as an informal space for personal as political discussion and action. Held the first evening of the NAEA Convention in the hotel lobby, since 2008, the one-hour open forum has evolved into a multi-modal form of engagement, including introductions, performance, artmaking, brainstorming and synthesizing ideas–as well as planning collaboratively for future action. A human microphone process used throughout the lobby amplifies our political voice in public feminist art pedagogy.
Lobby Activism book contributors might share their experiences as participants in each year’s Lobby Activism session. Contributions on lobby session influence, impact, theory, and possibilities are also encouraged. However, in each of the ten book sections we would like to extend beyond the Lobby Activism Sessions and encourage submissions that are about the themes. Therefore, authors from a range of disciplines, theoretical perspectives, and not having participated in the Women’s Caucus and Lobby Sessions are also encouraged to submit chapters.
BOOK CHAPTERS: The 10 sections of the book are formed from the annual themes of the Lobby sessions Diversity of approaches to scholarship relative to the book sections are encouraged.
See http://judychicago.arted.psu.edu/lobby-activism/ for suggestions for writing chapters or visual essays for one or more of the ten sections of the book, briefly outlined below. as well as photos and prompts/data/inspiration for the sessions and transcripts of audio recordings from each Lobby Activism session.
