DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 1, 2006
We are considering proposals for sessions organized
around a theme, special panels, and/or individual papers.
Sessions are scheduled in 1½ hour slots, typically with four
papers or speakers per standard session.
Among the topics/themes we may highlight: the impact
of Brokeback Mountain; transgender in popular media
(e.g., TransAmerica, Kinky Boots); the state of New Queer
Cinema; the legacies of Will & Grace, The L-Word, and
Queer as Folk; indicators of a gay/post-gay culture; and critique
of queer-centered media (e.g., Logo, Curve, PlanetOut).
However, proposals addressing any topic at the intersection
of popular culture and queerness are welcome: literature,
social studies, history, etc.
Should you or any of your colleagues be interested
in submitting a proposal or have any questions, please contact:
