We require additional essays for an edited volume on queer visual cultures contracted with Universitas Press and due to be published by the end of this year. Essays should focus on representations and portrayals of, or appropriations of the queer subject on stage, on screen or through other visual cultural mediums. The essays could discuss individual works or artists or attempt to present a study of genres or a cluster of works. At this stage we are looking for an additional 5-6 papers that deal with the queer subject on film and on stage/theatrical portrayals of the queer, queer art or the queer in art, New Queer Cinema, installation art and the queer, queering dance, and the queer in television.

This panel considers the centrality of the space of the sea in the contemporary global migrant/refugee crisis. We invite papers that explore the complexities of the current crisis by addressing issues such as global capitalism, national violence and religious persecution, race and gender, sexual trafficking, precarious labor, and migratory law. Papers may address current and historical crossings, and they may consider various bodies of water, such as the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Ocean, and the Caribbean Sea, etc. Papers that take a cross-disciplinary or interdisciplinary approach are welcome.
