  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:
