Title: "Comparatively Queer: Crossing Time, Crossing Cultures"

This collection seeks to queer the field of comparative studies as well as
demonstrate how a comparative component might be considered central to
"queering queer studies" itself. Papers are therefore sought that take a
comparative approach to queer projects by interrogating the usual national
limits of study as well as the nexus of comparison where traditional boundaries
break down. Especially welcome will be work that crosses historical periods,
cultures, and linguistic contexts.

Deadline: Please send a one-page abstract by 15 June 2005 as an email attachment to each of the editors for the volume:
