Call for Papers: Special edition of 'Text': 'Beyond Australia Queer'

updated: 
Monday, October 27, 2014 - 8:02pm
Jay Daniel Thompson (La Trobe University), Dallas J. Baker (Southern Cross University)

This special issue of TEXT reflects and builds on Australia Queer, a pioneering collection of queer writing. The 1990s saw the rise of queer theory and politics. Annamarie Jagose has described queer 'as an umbrella term for a coalition of culturally marginal sexual self-identifications and … a nascent theoretical model which has developed out of more traditional lesbian and gay studies' (1996: 1).

In Australia, the arrival of queer was heralded by the work of writers such as Christos Tsiolkas, Dean Kiley and Fiona McGregor; the activism of groups such as the Australian chapter of ActUp; and scholarly work which includes journals such as Critical InQueeries (1995-98) and a 1996 Special Edition of Meanjin, entitled 'Australia Queer'.

The Graduate Center-CUNY English Student Association Conference: Trance
March 5-6 2015

This conference seeks to bring together critical and imaginative forms of scholarship, workshops, performance and other creative work around ideas of trance. From the Great Awakening's irruptive glossalia to the glossed eyes of late capitalist workers, from various manifestations of trance dance to the moving spiral, trance is woven into the fabrics of spiritual, theological, political, and literary histories, texts and methodologies. Trance not only challenges Enlightenment models of knowledge production, but also forces us to navigate extra-linguistic experience, thus destabilizing language as epistemological ground.
