NEW Demeter Press Call for Papers - Book on Queer Parenting..PLEASE

Attached and below is a New CFP from Demeter Press - Queer Parenting
(edited by Rachel Epstein)..PLEASE CIRCULATE WIDELY

                            CALL FOR PAPERS

    Demeter Press is seeking submissions for an edited collection on

                            QUEER PARENTING

                      Publication Date: Fall, 2008
                         Editor: Rachel Epstein

    We are excited to be seeking submissions for a new book on queer
   parenting. We want the book to reflect current thinking, research,
 debates, issues, experiences and concerns related to LGBTT2IQ (lesbian,
 gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, 2-spirit, intersex and queer)
    parenting/raising children. We welcome submissions from parents,
 children, students, activists, scholars, artists and others interested
                             in this area.

                            We are seeking:
                            *academic papers
            * reports on community-based and other research
           * personal stories and reflections that incorporate
                  social/historical/political context
                                * poetry
                               *art work

We hope the book can begin to reflect the enormous diversity that exists
  across queer parenting experiences and raise interesting and possibly
 provocative questions about the implications of queer-identified people
  raising children. We particularly welcome submissions from those who
              are marginalized within "queer" communities.

  We want to move from the defensive position we have historically been
  placed in (i.e. "proving" that our children are okay) to embrace the
      broad complexity of issues that concern us and our children.

      Abstracts/Proposals (250-300 words) due: January 1, 2007

          Acceptances will be made by: February 28, 2007

              Accepted submissions due: July 1, 2007

           Please send inquiries and abstracts/proposals to:
