Show at Another Bookstore: Jennifer Spector [05 May 2006|09:50pm]

Jennifer Spector is playing at Another Bookstore on Saturday, May 6th at 7pm.
Tickets are on sale now for $7 in advance and $10 at the door. RSVP not required.

Another Bookstore is Michiana's Premier GLBT Cafe, Bookstore, and Resource Center!

"With her beautiful voice, singer/ songwriter Jennifer Spector is a pleasure to listen to. That her songs are also first-rate makes "Ahead of the Game" appropriately titled. The songs here are mellow, and Spector's acoustic guitar playing is augmented by diverse instrumentation including flute, oboe, banjo, trumpet and a terrific xylophone on "Humor." Lyrically, she turns nice philosophical phrases such as "A grain of salt goes a very long way in life's smorgasbord." This album is one "game" worth playing over and over again."

Blurr #3 - Call for Submissions [17 Jan 2006|10:18am]

Hello everyone,

The staff of Blurr has begun planning their third issue for January/February. The
theme for this issue is "generational gender" which will hopefully be an inclusive
way to talk about gender and its intersections with both childhood and aging.
So, we are currently requesting any submissions (poetry, fiction, essays, art)
which are related to:

  • gender and aging

  • gender and childhood

  • gender stratification found in products for older or younger people

  • gender issues specific to older or younger people

    As usual, we are also accepting submissions on a variety of gender topics not
    relating to our focus.

    The deadline for these submissions is January 25th. Submissions can be sent to
    this e-mail address (blurr@iusb.edu).

    Thank you for your time! We greatly look forward to receiving your submissions
    for Blurr #3.

    Blurr Zine: the next issue... on gender [25 Oct 2005|11:04am]

    Zine: Call for submissions... on gender.


    The Gender Project is well underway at Indiana University of South Bend. We are a new, student organized, gender advocacy group on campus.

    Last month we distributed our first issue of Blurr, a new zine with a focus on gender. It was a great success here at IUSB and soon we hope to be able to share the zine with a much larger audience by making the publication available online.

    In the meantime, we are currently compiling works for the second issue. We hope to begin printing in just a few short weeks.

    This zine is a focus on all aspects of gender and how it crosses lines of socioeconomic status, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, and more.

    A call for submissions... more info.Collapse )
