Queer Sinophone Cultures 2

Following the publication of Queer Sinophone Cultures (2013), both queer studies and Sinophone studies have envisioned a more globally expansive and culturally diverse research agenda. An increasing number of scholars—young and established—have begun to situate their work in dialogue with the intersections of these two rapidly growing fields. We seek to bring together and showcase this new vibrant wave of scholarship, with the aim of consolidating queer Sinophone studies as an inclusive protocol to further transnational inquiries into the pressing status of non-conforming genders, sexualities, and bodies. 

While the first volume aimed to stake new controversial debates and interdisciplinary horizons, Queer Sinophone Cultures 2 envisages an even more definitive collection of original essays that are theoretically ambitious, empirically grounded, and cross-disciplinary in nature. We are soliciting analytical essays that either extend or challenge the major issues raised in the original volume, present new angles on ongoing lacunae in disciplinary-specific work, chart the significance of previously silenced or marginalized topics, or, more generally, explore the intersections of queer theory and Sinophone cultures. Submissions by scholars working in the fields of literature, film, communication, critical race and ethnic studies, history, anthropology, sociology, politics, and science studies are particularly welcome.

Please send an abstract of no more than 500 words, including references to major sources for the research, to Howard Chiang (hhchiang@ucdavis.edu) and Alvin K. Wong (alvinwong@yonsei.ac.kr) by January 1, 2018, along with a one-page CV. Authors will be notified via e-mail by January 15, 2018, of the editors’ decision to include their work. Essays (of no more than 8,000 words) will be due on June 1, 2018.


Editors: Howard Chiang (University of California, Davis) and Alvin K. Wong (Yonsei University)
