      Intercultural Communication and Creative Practice:
      Women, Performance and Civic Discourse in Global Contexts
      in the New Ablex Publishing Co. Series "Civic Discourse for the Third
      Chapter essays are solicited for Intercultural Communication and Creative
      Practice: Women, Performance and Civic Discourse in Global Contexts. This
      book will examine the challenges and successes women face as public
      performers in global contexts, particularly in developing nations. Exploring
      women's role in music, dance and theater, the book will focus on women
      performers in post-colonial and orientalist contexts, which have rendered
      them as the exotic 'Other', or in other settings where women have
      traditionally been silenced from public civic discourse.
      Drawing from feminist discourses emerging from the so-called 'Third World',
      the book problematizes the historical positions of women on public stages
      and how the past creates barriers to women's success as contemporary
      musicians, dancers and theatrical performers. The book examines
      architectural and spacial boundaries traditionally erected for women
      generally and women performers specifically. Moroccan feminist Fatima
      Mernissi argues that "the ritualized trespasses" of women in the public
      sphere equates women, on stage and on the street, as prostitutes.
      The book is will be distinguished by women's articulations from regions such
      as Africa, Asia, and Latin America who interrogate the problems women face
      in the public sphere, the objectification and exploitation of women, and the
      historicized notions of femininity and sexuality in developing nations.
      While theoretically rigorous, the book will be accessible and engaging to
      both undergraduate and graduate students as well as scholars. The book will
      present women's civic discourse in a unique way - through an examination of
      the intersections of intercultural communication and creative practice.
      Finally, the book looks to the future of intercultural and creative practice
      as civic discourse as women performers move into the Third Millennium.
      As the series addresses communication in the Third Millennium all chapters
      should have a futuristic focus. Chapter essays should utilize civic
      discourse/communication as the base (women's civic discourse intersected
      with either interpersonal, intercultural, ethnocultural, multicultural,
      international, multinational, development, organizational, media or global
      civic discourse/communication).
      Deadline for submission of one-page (250 word) abstract, preferably by
