Call for Abstracts. For bell hooks (1952-2021): "White-Supremacist Capitalist Patriarchy" and "Feminism is for Everybody" in U.S. History, Politics, and Culture

2022-02-28

The next issue of USAbroad aims to acknowledge and celebrate the importance and impact of bell hooks' transgressive interdisciplinarity, which challenges the boundaries of academic disciplines and those of the cultural marketplace to present a "feminism for everybody." We invite proposals that address the myriad themes of her intellectual output: from gender to sex and sexuality, from sexism to the construction of masculinity, from racism to the representation of blackness, from the house as a site of resistance to women's labor, from the university teaching to education in general.
