CALL FOR CHAIRS: "The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies: Past, Present, and Future Directions"
San Diego State University, April 17-18, 2015

Conference Organizers: Breanne Fahs, Annika Mann, Sarah Stage, and Eric Swank (New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, Arizona State University)

We invite proposals for an exciting and provocative symposium on the topic of Transforming Contagion. This transdisciplinary and transhistorical symposium aims to explore contagion in its broadest sense by including perspectives about the spread, transmission, and modalities of contagion, and how contagion has been variously defined, imagined, and subjected to regulation and/or exploitation. By "contagion," we do not necessarily mean only that which occurs in the body or within the framework of embodiment, but also contagions rooted in the literary, psychological, moral, educational, or political. We thus invite papers from any historical period or methodological approach that consider the complicated topic of contagion.
