Call for Papers

The CFP for our next issue - including our THEMED SECTION - is due AUGUST 15


We are seeking work dealing with theatre that speaks truth to power, that stands up for unheard voices, and that pushes back against tyranny and injustice. We want to celebrate theatre's power to affect the world around us and to serve as a mode of protest. For the themed section, we invite scholarly and creative work.

Submissions of both themed and general work will be considered for this issue.

Intersex in Literature, Film, and Visual Culture

Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:28pm
American Comparative Literature Association, Los Angeles, 03/29-04/01,2018
deadline for submissions:

In her 2009 introduction to Critical Intersex, Morgan Holmes posits that intersex can never be “reduced to a pure, embodied state nor to a simple, cultural render in which ‘intersex’ is whatever we want it to be.” “‘Intersex’ then,” she continues, “is hailed by specific and competing interests, and is a sign constantly under erasure, whose significance always carried the trace of an agenda from somewhere else.” This seminar seeks to address intersex in relation to these “elsewheres” in literature, film, and visual studies. We encourage submissions that critically consider intersex in a broad range of texts, time periods, and genres, as a way of promoting and fostering a burgeoning field of “intersex studies.”
