As queer theory continues to evolve and utopian studies dusts itself off from its relative dormancy until the late twentieth century, the two strands of thought have grabbed ahold of one another in hopes to uncover just what "The Future" might mean to those identifying as queer. This panel seeks papers wishing to join the vibrant conversation of the relationship between queerness and utopianism. Is queerness inherently utopic? Is the future inherently queer? How might queer individuals enact utopic desires? Can we find moments of the queerly utopic and utopicly queer in canonical and non-canonical literature?

We often think of the terms "globe" and "world" as synonymous because they seem to similarly name the totality of the thing on which or in which we all find ourselves living. This panel asks contributors to consider different formations of planetary or worldly experience in the long eighteenth century, if only to highlight the particular implications of considering the world as species of globe.

CFP: Works in Progress

All texts and artworks will have at one stage been a work in progress, despite the tendency to value them as cultural artefacts once they are deemed finished and made available for consumption. Redrafting and editing are processes which strive towards a "final" product, meaning their publication often results in the loss or occlusion of multiple ancillary versions. Such materials are important to our understanding of how texts and works are shaped and reshaped, and by whom.
