During the twentieth century in the United States, numerous factors, including feminism, late
capitalism, the increasing acceptance of interracial marriage and calls for legalizing gay
marriage, as well as conservative backlashes against these movements, have profoundly altered
the way we view marriage. While the range of topics affecting marriage as well as potential
authors studied are open, papers examining how changing ideas about ethnic, racial, religious,
and/or sexual identity affect the treatment of marriage in late twentieth-century and early
twenty-first-century American literature are especially welcome. Please email 250-500 word

Queer Theory and Becoming
NEMLA conference, Buffalo in April 2008
This panel will articulate what is at stake in the recent turn to time in
feminist and queer thinking, welcoming approaches through a range of
critical, theoretical, political, and cultural texts. We hope not only to
discuss representations of queer time-the deviations, divagations,
resistances, incoherencies, and perversions of normative
linear/reproductive temporality-but also to consider queer theory as itself
a theory of time and becoming. Please send 300 word abstracts and brief cv
to: Mikko Tuhkanen, East Carolina State University at email address
