Queer Per Verse (MLA 2018)

Two decades after the groundbreaking 1997 essay collection Novel Gazing: Queer Readings in Fiction, edited by Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, no comparable volume of theoretical engagements with poetry has appeared. This is not because of a lack of significant, queer critical accounts of poetry, then or now. Yet this relatively small body of work in queer poetics has emerged piecemeal, rather than as part of a sustained, collective effort to consolidate a line of inquiry and further a dialogue between queer and poetic theories.

Doing Sex: Men, Masculinity and Sexual Practices

updated: 
Tuesday, February 7, 2017 - 1:55pm
Chris Haywood, Newcastle University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 19, 2017

This colloquium aims to bring together the study of sexual practices and desires and critical studies of men and masculinities. We are explicitly interested in returning to some of the provocations of sexology in the twentieth century to think through men’s sexuality today. For Kinsey there is an inherent paradox in “man’s absorbing interest in sex and his astounding ignorance of it; his desire to know and his unwillingness to face the facts.” Whilst we can see some of the failings and problematics in Kinsey, Masters & Johnson, and other Sexologists, it is critical to reflect not simply as criticism of these, but also what they are suggestive and enlightening of.
