deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 30, 2023

Mind the Gap 2023 is a free hybrid conference held on Saturday the 29th and Sunday the 30th of July 2023 at King’s College London. With this interdisciplinary conference we want to provide a space to enable the building of bridges between what is written in theory and what is experienced in practice. 

Last year we addressed and explored the gaps between academic research and everyday LGBTQIA+ realities, by combining academic presentations with community speakers. This year we’re going one step further, by thinking about what it means to cross these gaps, and bring seemingly-separate dichotomies together.

CALL FOR PAPERS Identity and representation in the here and now, as far as cultural productions are concerned, have been supported and/ or undermined by visions of the future in literature, performative arts, or cinema. Authors and performers have offered to audiences their concerns, hopes, and expectations about possible futures via either utopian or dystopian narratives. In 2007, Ann Brooks was talking about a new modality of acknowledging cultural and ethnic identity from a transcultural and transnational viewpoint. In her words, “[t]hese new cultural and ethnic identities carry with them the need for new conceptions of subjectivity and require the opening-up of new subject positions and new spaces and places from which to speak” (184).
