This interdisciplinary project brings together a diverse group of scholars and activists to examine the 2008 Obama/McCain campaigns through the prism of race, sexuality, ethnicity or class formations in America today. The Editor seeks essays that examine how any of the following groups/issues/concerns played out during the 2008 presidential campaigns:
**LGBTG matters
**the Jewish vote and/or Israel question
**Re-alignments and alliances across racial/ethnic lines
**Cross-dressings: the cooptation of language and signifiers
