From surrealism to social networks to the "real" housewives of New Jersey, it's no secret that reality is socially constructed. "Reality"—-as a state of mind or as an embodied experience—-has historically been positioned in opposition to such realms of infinite possibility as dreams, fantasy, and imagination. In fact, far from being a state of stability and sanity, reality is often treated as that which must be escaped. But escape to what?

Attending (to) the Party: Orientations and Simulacra of Public and Private Sites

Everyone's alone — or so it seems to me.
They make noises, and think they are talking to each other;
They make faces, and think they understand each other.
And I'm sure they don't. Is that a delusion?
T.S. Eliot

20 years since the reclamation of the word 'queer' by the LGBTQ community this conference would like to take a closer look at broad themes of queer sexualities through time and space, non-normative sexual constructions and queer sexual identities from a diverse range of perspectives by scholars working in various academic disciplines. Yet our meaning of the word queer is not limited to the non-mainstream sexuality as we opt for inclusion of 'unusual' heterosexual practices into the 'queer domain' in order not to discriminate but understand, include and accept.

Papers, reports, work-in-progress and workshops are invited on issues related to the following themes:
