UPDATED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 3, 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 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.
Should you or any of your colleagues be interested
in submitting a proposal or have any questions, please contact:
