full name / name of organization: 
Southern Connecticut State University
contact email:

Sex in Context

Our Spring 2014 issue will feature a selection of papers devoted to “Sex in Context.” Papers submitted to “Sex in Context” should explore the role of sex and/or sexuality in texts. Some potential questions papers may address include, but are not limited to:

• How does a character’s sexuality influence his or her development?
• How does attaining sexual gratification motivate characters or play a role in the text?
• How might sex affect the text’s reception by historical or current audiences?
• What does sexuality mean in a particular text?
• How does the text define “normal” and/or “abnormal” sex and/or sexuality?
• What does the text say about cultural definitions of “normal” and/or “abnormal” sex and/or sexuality?

As always, we welcome papers from a variety of fields, provided they relate to our theme of “Sex in Context.” Please note that papers engaging with genders studies will be considered for our “Text in Context” section.
