Exit 9: Call for Papers

Jagged Edges: Rethinking the Canon(s) Through Gendered Lenses

Exit 9 sends a call for papers that focuses on the issue of censorship in
various literatures, texts, and theories. Whether implicit or explicit,
censorship is a common theme in literature and theory; we ask participants
to consider the intersections of an idea such as censorship with regards
to current trends in the interdiscipline of Women's and Gender Studies.
Submissions may consider the topic from one or a combination of the
following approaches:*

• Class
• Gender
• Globalization
• Identity Politics
• Masculinity/Masculinities
• Queer Theory
• Race
• Sexual Difference
• Sexuality
• Transnationalism

* Submissions are required to be in English, but we encourage submissions
focusing on non-English as well as English texts.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, January 16, 2006.

Submissions should follow MLA format (endnotes and complete bibliography)
and should include two hard copies, an electronic copy, and a short
biography (50 words). Please mail submissions to:
