Call for Papers
  Submission deadline: March 31, 2007
  We invite abstracts for papers, roundtable discussions, and presentation/lectures on any topic related to human sexuality and its representation in the works of novelist and futurist Robert A. Heinlein.
  Throughout the mid-to-late 20th century, Robert A. Heinlein stirred up controversy with his various treatments of human sexuality. From S-groups to a particular brand of free love best described as "the gates are locked and it's nobody's business," Heinlein challenged our thinking about gender and sexuality like few authors before or since.
  Suggested topics include (but are not limited to):
  --Sex vs. gender
