44th International Congress on Medieval Studies
Call for Papers: Anglo-Saxon Space: Material, Cultural, Symbolic

In recent years, space - in all its various forms - has become a vital
category for medieval studies. We welcome proposals for papers across a
range of approaches to Anglo-Saxon space, including physical, visual,
textual, geographical, spiritual, social and imaginary. In continuing this
series of sessions, which have fun with great success for the past four
years, we hope to bring together more Anglo-Saxon scholars doing such work,
and foster further connections within the "space" of such exchanges.

I'm putting together a panel on urban constructions of queer identity for the IDKE.X
(International Drag King Extravaganza) 2008 conference, "Cultural Depots & Queer Destinations,"
to be held October 16-19 in Columbus, OH. Specifically, I am thinking of the ways contemporary
queer writing about the "city" is (in)formed by gender. My own work focuses on how Eileen
Myles's Chelsea Girls works within this context. I'm interested, also, in how for writers like
Michelle Tea and the Sister Spit group, Myles has come (ironically?) to embody a kind of cultural
icon for a new generation of queer femme writers. How do recent and upcoming conferences like
