2007 GLBTQ Studies Conference at UNC Asheville

The UNCA GLBTQ conference is dedicated to the investigation of genders and
sexualities. This year, we invite submissions on the theme of queer futures
although all GLBTQ-related proposals will be considered. Elaborations on
this theme might include:
* rethinking queer institutionalization
* global futures
* radical agendas and conservative gains
* queer representations, expressions and cultures
* transgender status in queer communities
* gender roles and identity politics
* queer activism
* intersections of race, disability, and/or class
We welcome a range of approaches and participants, including faculty,
graduate, and undergraduate students. All formats will be considered,
including paper presentations (15-20 minutes), panels, workshops,
exhibitions and performances. Panels will consist of 3 or 4 papers.
