Abstract deadline: 2/16/07

This is a call for papers that address the topic of gay masculinity. Can there be such a thing, or rather, are there many types of masculinities or is there only one masculinity? Must a gay masculinity (which is usually labeled as inadequate or excessive) always be defined against the heteronormative definition of what is masculine ? Academic pieces that consider these topics, and others of the same theme, are welcome.

CFP: Essays on Guy Maddin (4/1/07; collection)

updated: 
Sunday, January 28, 2007 - 8:00pm
David Church

  CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
    Contributors are currently sought for a collection of scholarly essays devoted to the films of Guy Maddin, one of the most distinctive, outlandish, and personal filmmakers. Though Maddin's international reputation has grown steadily over the past two decades, in-depth academic analyses of his work have been relatively few in number. This collection will attempt to redress that deficiency by bringing new material alongside several previously published essays, offering multiple perspectives on all things Maddin.
    Possible topics include:
  * postmodernism and its relatives (pastiche, irony, ambivalence, etc.)
  * themes of amnesia/incest/necrophilia
