Journal of Lesbian Studies has reopened its call for submissions for
the upcoming "Lesbians and Body Image" issue with a probable pub
date of 2007-8. Deb Burgard, Ph.D., Guest Editor, is welcoming
one-page abstracts of articles addressing different aspects of the
theme. Articles may raise more questions than they answer, and may
range from research to theory, academic to personal, for example:

* Does loving a woman change your own body image?

* Are athletic lesbians more or less accepting of their bodies than
non-athletic lesbians?
