Call For Abstracts: Anthology on Sex and Disability

 

           Disability and sex come together in multiple ways. In the
popular imagination, however, the terms "sex" and "disability" are, if not
antithetical, then certainly incongruous. To many, the idea of people with
disabilities as sexual or sexy remains largely unthinkable. We are
soliciting proposals for a cultural studies anthology of essays that will
challenge such conceptions, examining, revising, and extending the myriad
ways that disability and sex intersect.

Issue 15: Intimacy

In recent years, scholars from a broad range of disciplines have engaged the issue of intimacy. From these various efforts, at least one fact is clear: There is not one intimacy, but many. How do we describe these intimacies, and what complicates our descriptions? Intimacy is not simply synonymous with love, but it is different from friendship, and often quite different from sex. Or is it? Moreover, once we have discovered what intimacy is, where do we find it: in communities and nations, between or among friends, between or among lovers? How is intimacy negotiated and produced, maintained, or, often, lost?
