ELN2_at_colorado.edu

New Deadline For Submissions: April 1, 2007

Call for Papers: ELN 45.2, Fall/Winter 2007, "Queer Space"

Volume 45.2 of the new ELN (Fall/Winter 2007) seeks to make a radical
intervention in the discourses of both spatiality and sexuality studies.
Contributors will explore gay, lesbian, bisexual, and queer definitions of
space not only in relation to the built environment but in response to a range
of boundaries and sites. We invite analyses of conceptual, geographical,
discursive, virtual, and metaphoric understandings of queer space, welcoming in
particular interdisciplinary essays that move beyond extant work on the topic
that deals primarily with male experience.
