CfP: Gender and the Erotic

updated: 
Monday, October 20, 2014 - 8:22am
full name / name of organization: 
Gender Forum: An Internet Journal for Gender Studies

In the cultural imagination, expressions of the erotic – sex, desire, relationships – are intrinsically linked to gender. Female gender stereotypes are often based in ideas about sexual behavior, from the lustful Jezebel who preys on innocent men to the sexually passive Angel in the House who endures sexuality for the sake of procreation. Similarly, behavior in sexual encounters is often strictly scripted based on gender, with "rules" on everything from who makes the first move to who gets to be on top.

In American history, animals are everywhere. They are a ubiquitous presence in myriad historical, literary, biographical, scientific and other texts and narratives of the American past – a past that, both different from and just like the present, was characterized by a multiplicity of relations between humans and animals ranging from intimate co-existence to exploitation and outright violence. A host of quintessentially American species such as the bison and mustang of the Western plains or the grizzly, admired by California mountain man James Capen Adams as "the monarch of American beasts", continue to inhabit the discursive, imaginary and, now to a much lesser degree, the geographical spaces of the nation.
