"Asexual: a person who does not experience sexual attraction." This definition is provided on the homepage of the Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN), a web community of nearly 30,000 members worldwide that is generally considered the mouthpiece of the asexual community. AVEN's political platform calls for the depathologization of asexuality and the recognition of asexuality as a legitimate sexual orientation, with AVEN working toward these goals through an engagement with a variety of media – their website, blogs and discussion boards, guest appearances on television talk shows, documentary film, and participation in public events like Pride parades and public sex workshops.

The Diasporic Body and Its Discontents

The co-conveners of the Diaporic Imagination Research Group invite participants to submit work-in-progress for a working session of the 2010 conference of the American Society for Theatre Research in Seattle, WA, November 18-21, 2010.

Participants are invited to consider how power is embodied in diasporic identities, cultural practices, and performances. Our session emphasizes the spatial and temporal aspects of the "corporeal power" at the conceptual heart of CORD/ASTR 2010. By paying attention to diaspora's "discontents," we will also focus on the material and political effects of diasporic performance and the exercises of corporeal power.

With the publication of Lost Girls and 25,000 Years of Erotic Freedom, the centrality of love and sex in Alan Moore's work has become indisputable. Thus far, however, little scholarly attention has been paid to this facet of his work. This collection, provisionally titled *Lost Loves: Why Men and Women Make It (or Don't) in the Work of Alan Moore*, aims to remedy that situation.

Is architecture a cult of the externalised object? It would seem so: of 46 images of prize winning entries on the 2009 World Architecture Festival website, for example, only four show interiors.[2] So efficiently are interior and exterior sealed off from each other that they are frequently treated as discrete professional domains. However, inside and outside are always ready to be reversed and today's spaces may seem even more involuted, fragile and unsettled than those of the past.

DEADLINE: 31 May 2010

More than one commentator has mentioned that science fiction as a form is where theological narrative went after Paradise Lost, and this is undoubtedly true…The form is often used as a way of acting out the consequences of a theological doctrine….Extraterrestrials have taken the place of angels, demons, fairies and saints, though it must be said that this last group is now making a comeback.
