  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 literature & 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.
