Call for Papers :
20 years since the reclamation of the word ?queer ? by the LGBTQ
community this conference would like to take a closer look at broad
themes of queer sexualities through time and space, non-normative
sexual constructions and queer sexual identities from a diverse range
of perspectives by scholars working in various academic disciplines.
Yet our meaning of the word queer is not limited to the non-mainstream
sexuality as we opt for inclusion of ?unusual ? heterosexual practices
into the ?queer domain ? in order not to discriminate but understand,
include and accept.
Papers, reports, work-in-progress and workshops are invited on issues
related to the following themes :
. the role of historical forces in shaping queer sexuality(ies)
. historiography of queer sexualities
. the politics of queer sexualities
. queertopias and the politics of gender
. queer identities/sexualities in literature and art
. queer sexualities and the body ? literary and non-literary
. representations and resistances of non-normative corporeality
. beyond queer sex and sexuality
. queerotica vs. queerporn
. queer sexualities and performativity
. queer sexualities and age
. queer sexualities and theory (queer theory, straight queer theory,
sexuality studies, disability studies, feminist perspective, fat
studies etc ;)
The Steering Group particularly welcomes the submission of pre-formed
panel proposals. Papers will also be considered on any related theme.
300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 26th November 2010.
If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper
should be submitted by Friday 1st April 2011.
300 word abstracts should be submitted simultaneously to both
Organising Chairs ; abstracts may be in Word, WordPerfect, or RTF
formats with the following information and in this order :
a) author(s), b) affiliation, c) email address, d) title of abstract,
e) body of abstract.
E-mails should be entitled : QS1 Abstract Submission.
Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using
footnotes and any special formatting, characters or emphasis (such as
bold, italics or underline). We acknowledge receipt and answer to all
paper proposals submitted. If you do not receive a reply from us in a
week you should assume we did not receive your proposal ; it might be
lost in cyberspace ! We suggest, then, to look for an alternative
electronic route or resend.
