CFP: The Ethics of Passing (12/10/06; SGES, 2/15/07-2/17/07)

The Ethics of Passing
   
  The concept of "passing" is not new to the American landscape. While racial/ethnic passing may be the most widely recognized form of passing, recent acceptance of queer and transgender studies reveals passing as more than a matter of skin color. The most general question, what are the ethics involved and undermined in participating in passing, opens the door to many other questions surrounding this issue. Does the actor always have control over her/his own ability to pass? What does it mean that someone can be passed without desiring such recognition? What kind of responsibility is involved in revealing ethnic, sexual, or gender "authenticity" if even the notion of the authentic has become problematic?

  "Queer Space" (3/1/07: ELN Special Issue)

A respected forum since 1962 for new work in English literary
studies, ELN (English
  Language Notes) has undergone a change in editorship and an extensive makeover
  as a biannual journal devoted exclusively to special topics in all
fields of literary
  and cultural studies. The new ELN is particularly determined to revive and
  reenergize its traditional commitment to featuring shorter notes,
often no more than
  3-4 pages in print, an attribute of the journal that will provide a
unique forum for
  cutting-edge scholarly debate and exchange in the humanities.
