CFP: Anthology on Brokeback Mountain (5/06; collection)

Friday, March 31, 2006 - 12:08pm
Olsen-Fazi, Annette M.



Editors are looking for contributions to an anthology of essays on Brokeback Mountain

(personal reflections as well as works of a more critical nature) which address the question, "Can Brokeback Mountain validly be viewed as a gay polemic?" Contributions that examine opposing perspectives on this question will be especially welcome inasmuch as editors seek to present a lively debate.


Contributions that examine Annie Proulx's story "Brokeback Mountain" are also sought. Essays on other topics related to either the film or the short story will be considered. For all contributions, an informal writing style will be preferred over the highly academic.
