Gender, Sexuality, and Museums, new volume


When it appeared in 2010, Gender, Sexuality and Museums offered scholars, practitioners, and students key articles, essays and case studies on those subjects. As the first reader to focus on LGBT issues and museums, and the first text in nearly 15 years to collect articles which focus on women and museums, it offered new and classic investigations about gender and sexuality – both practical and theoretical – many of which broke new ground and helped spur new practices and perspectives. The editors propose a second volume of essays on this topic, to appear for the tenth anniversary of Gender, Sexualities, and Museums.

Queer(ing) decoloniality

The upcoming February lectures conference and edited collection will explore how, in contemporary South Africa, queer lives and queer writing intersect with the narratives of colonial history, the actualities of the postcolonial now, and, specifically, the drive towards decoloniality.

We would like to invite chapter contributions that open spaces of discussion and exploration between queer theory and narrative(s) of the contemporary moment in South Africa, but also more generally in the global South, such as:

2nd Symposium on Nineteenth-Century Literature: Family Plots (December 7, 2017)

Monday, October 2, 2017 - 5:29pm
University of Lisbon School of Arts and Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 31, 2017

After a first meeting dedicated to Brazilian author Machado de Assis, the second “Symposium on Nineteenth-Century Literature” will be focusing on family as one of the most preeminent topics of nineteenth-century fiction, across different nationalities, cultures and authorial aesthetics. This broader scope will allow us to inquire into the role of family as a site of convergence and tension, where the concepts of individual and community, intimate and social, familiar and foreign are brought together both to meet and to challenge each other.

“She rolled a bit of newspaper into a tight stick about six inches long, lit it and threw it onto the bed where the kerosene-soaked Plum lay in snug delight. Quickly, as the whoosh of flames engulfed him, she shut the door and made her slow and painful journey back to the top of the house” (Morrison, Sula).
