Assuming Gender: New Issue & Call for Papers

Assuming Gender Special Issue - 'Queer and There'

From Assuming Gender:

Assuming Gender would like to invite submissions to our forthcoming special issue: ‘Queer and There’. In this issue we aim to explore contemporary queer theory and its practical and theoretical horizons. We welcome submissions which engage with ‘queer texts’, but also those which apply perspectives gained from queer theory to perhaps unexpected texts, objects or fields. We would also welcome more theoretically-focussed articles, including those which posit challenges to aspects of the field.

In respect to the title, ‘Queer and There’, we particularly welcome submissions that take queer approaches to, or locate the queer in new and unexpected places.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Bodies
  • Ecologies
  • Futures
  • Heteronormativity
  • Intersections
  • Kinship
  • Nature/the Natural
  • Normativities
  • Paraphilia/Fetish
  • Perversion
  • Science/Technology
  • Sexual Identities/Orientations
  • Sexual Practices
  • Sociality
  • Space/Spatiality
  • Time/Temporality
  • The ‘End’ of Queer Theory
Proposals are welcome from any academic discipline, and can cover any historical period. We particularly welcome inter- and multi-disciplinary approaches.

We welcome contributions from academics and graduate students. Submissions should follow the Assuming Gender submission guidelines. Deadline: Monday, 2 September 2013.

Submissions and enquiries should be sent to issue co-editors David Andrew Griffiths and Kat Deerfield at gender@cardiff.ac.uk. [Read More]
