Queer Worldmaking

QED:
deadline for submissions:

QED: A Journal in GLBTQ Worldmaking (published 3 times/yr.) brings together scholars, activists, public intellectuals, artists, and policy and culture makers to discuss and mobilize issues and initiatives that matter to the diverse lived experience, struggle, and transformation of LGBTQ peoples and communities wherever they may be. With an emphasis on worldmaking praxis, QED welcomes theory, criticism, history, policy analysis, public argument, and creative exhibition, seeking to foster intellectual and activist work through essays, commentaries, interviews, roundtable discussions, and book and event reviews. Our use of the term “worldmaking” is much more deliberate in its derivation.

Adaptation (Oxford Journals)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 31, 2019

Adaptation, like nostalgia, is inextricably linked to the past. Both must grapple with the politics, pragmatics, and poetics of bringing the past into the present; and, in so doing, adaptation and nostalgia must also wrestle with one another.
