Call for Book Chapters: The Other #MeToos

Chapter proposal submission deadline: 31 March 2020

Since the inception of #MeToo, conversations have largely centered on the movement’s development in the United States. This edited collection focuses on the reception, translation, and adaptation of #MeToo in non-Western, indigenous, and/or postcolonial contexts; it aims to explore how #MeToo, a popularly Western-centric feminist movement, translates to politically, culturally, religiously, geographically, and academically Othered places and Othered genders and sexes.

This edited collection aims to explore the following ideas: (i) #MeToo has become a transnational feminist movement (ii) #MeToo works effectively through revisions rather than replication (iii) #MeToo assumes a different face in non-Western, non-White, postcolonial, transnational, and indigenous feminisms (iv) These other #MeToos require different theoretical approaches that need to be closely connected with feminist praxis and (v) #MeToo works in alliance with local progressive political forces.

We look for chapter contributions that, via eclectic, intersectional, and interdisciplinary approaches, bring together personal and academic experiences of and responses to #MeToo in diverse sociopolitical cultures and academic locations. Please submit a 250 word chapter proposal, 50-150 word long bio, and a CV at TheOtherMeToos@gmail.com by 15 March 2020.
