The editor of the proposed collection, called "Queer People of the Book:
Judaism and Homosexualities," seeks MLA formatted submissions of between
15-30 pps. Submissions should be well researched, engaging and, hopefully,
focus on topics and areas (i.e., medieval period) that have heretofore not
received much attention. But submissions are invited across historical
periods and disciplines, including Hebrew Scriptures and Ancient Israelite
Culture, commentaries on the laws, and the areas of Judaic, Queer, and
Women's Studies across various disciplines. Submissions can include what it
means to be queer and Jewish in pedagogical, religious, and political
contexts, as well as various engagements with Jewish texts, literatures,
histories (including the Holocaust), and testimonies.

The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2004, and initial queries should be
sent to the editor, Prof. Corinne E. Blackmer, at the addresses below:
