We are currently seeking 500-word abstracts for an edited collection on kink and other fringe texts (taboo literature, self-published erotica, SM narratives, fan fiction, disavowed fictions, and other marginalized texts). In this project, we define kink broadly to encompass a range of "inappropriate" texts, understanding that kink often refers to non-normative erotic fantasies and experiences. We are interested in contributions that focus primarily on contemporary written texts and do so by engaging theoretical frameworks such as psychoanalysis, queer theory, rhetoric, and feminist theory. One of the interests of this project is an exploration of the ways texts shift in and out of different canons and categories.

Call for chapter proposals for an edited volume tentatively titled Imagined Communities, Imaginary Scapes: Asian Africans in Exile. The focus will be on issues of identity and selfhood as explored through literary works, memoirs, social media and other writings. This will be a multi-disciplinary and multi-genre volume and will include literary criticism, creative pieces, and essays from the social sciences and other disciplines. Contributions can be in the form of a scholarly study or essay, a short memoir, a creative piece, or creative non-fiction.
