UPDATE: Queer Television (9/23/05; NEMLA, 3/2/06-3/5/06)

full name / name of organization: 
Scott F. Stoddart
contact email: 
stoddarts@mville.edu

Deadline extended:

NEMLA Convention: 2-5 March in Philadelphia.

I am currently seeking papers for the folowing panel:

Queer Eyes: Reading the "Must See" Queer Television Phenomenon. Sponsored by the NEMLA Gay and Lesbian Caucus. This roundtable seeks papers that read with a critical queer eye the phenomenon of the queer image on television: Why is Queer as Folk a favorite of straight women? Do the antics of the "Fab Four" promote gay stereotypes rather than break them down? Are the continuing sagas of The "L" Word lesbians simply a queered version of Desperate Housewives? Are the family dynamics of Six Feet Under really representative of the LGBT community? Is Will & Grace revolutionary, or a creative remake of I Love Lucy? Papers that examine these issues and others are welcome from all critical perspectives. Send proposals as Word attachments to Scott F. Stoddart at sstoddarts_at_mville.edu> by 23 September 2005.
