 Girls Interrupted: Disruptions of/by the Sex/Gender System

Girls Interrupted will investigate the use of interruptionâ€"
linguistically, narratively, politically, and sociallyâ€"in both fiction
and non-fiction as a medium through which writers register protest,
discontent, resentment, and/or other forms of resistance to the
sex/gender system in whatever its form, i.e., marriage, sexuality,
desire, gender identity, transgendered identity, ‘perversion’, feminism,
and so on. We invite essays that consider interruption in a variety of
sociological and literary contextsâ€"in essays, novels, short stories,
autobiographies, film, television, drama, essays and other forms of
popular culture. We also welcome new definitions of interruption from the
traditional ‘but’ of linguistic stoppage to other figurations. We are
interested in submissions from all national, racial and/or cultural
contexts as well as any narrative discipline.

Please send a C.V. and abstracts of no more than 500 words and/or papers
of no more than 20 pages in compatible Word or Rich Text Format to
