Anything But Safe - Essays on Sex, Sexuality, and Gender

~~~People like sex, society eschews sexuality, and academia banters about gender theory.~~~

We invite proposals of original essays on sex, sexuality, and gender as topics that are 'Anything But Safe' in terms of both society and academia. Sex, sexuality, and gender are culture constructions, necessarily informed by cultural circumstances and manipulated according to the existing expectations of class, race, and power relations – as many critical studies have demonstrated. However, too often it seems that these 'unsafe' topics are relegated to an academic discourse that tends to reify their subject matter into a "safer" more disconnected position.

Memory matters. It is crucial to some of the fields of scholarly inquiry that have been most prominent in recent years: the study of nationalism, questions of ethnic identity and the politics of recognition, in which groups are given recognition not least for the past experience of exclusion and suffering. Moreover, there have been numerous studies of cultural memory as expressed in monuments, memorials, works of art, and school textbooks.
