CFP: Queer Pop Culture and Community (9/15/06; NEMLA, 3/1/07-3/4/07)
"Post-Millennial Queer Pop Culture and the Construction of Community"
A Panel at the 2007 NEMLA Convention in Baltimore Maryland, March 1-4 2007
This panel seeks papers that explore recent queer pop culture (including tv, film, art, comics, porn, music, theater, the internet) and how this pop culture cultivates and/or constructs community. To what extent do these pop culture products make and/or perpetuate assumptions about queer community? To what extent do they reflect the evolution of a queer community? Papers may examine representations of queer life in mainstream popular culture as long as the papers focus on the depiction of queer community.
