Title: "Comparatively Queer: Crossing Time, Crossing Cultures"

This collection seeks to queer the field of comparative studies as well as
demonstrate how a comparative component might be considered central to
"queering queer studies" itself. Papers are therefore sought that take a
comparative approach to queer projects by interrogating the usual national
limits of study as well as the nexus of comparison where traditional boundaries
break down. Especially welcome will be work that crosses historical periods,
cultures, and linguistic contexts.

Issue 15: Intimacy

In recent years, scholars from a broad range of disciplines have engaged the issue of intimacy. From these various efforts, at least one fact is clear: There is not one intimacy, but many. How do we describe these intimacies, and what complicates our descriptions? Intimacy is not simply synonymous with love, but it is different from friendship, and often quite different from sex. Or is it? Moreover, once we have discovered what intimacy is, where do we find it: in communities and nations, between or among friends, between or among lovers? How is intimacy negotiated and produced, maintained, or, often, lost?

Special issue of *Social Semiotics*:

Mediated Citizenship(s)

The concept of citizenship is under attack and revision from all sides.
Scholars, politicians and pundits alike decry the decline of participation in
conventional politics. Some view mass media as the culprits of growing
disenchantment among citizens. At the same time, recent years have also seen the
rise of new social movements and forms of activism, which involve new
generations of citizens. Global flows of capital, people, and media content
present new challenges to citizenship.
