We require additional essays for an edited volume on queer visual cultures contracted with Universitas Press and due to be published by the end of this year. Essays should focus on representations and portrayals of, or appropriations of the queer subject on stage, on screen or through other visual cultural mediums. The essays could discuss individual works or artists or attempt to present a study of genres or a cluster of works. At this stage we are looking for an additional 5-6 papers that deal with the queer subject on film and on stage/theatrical portrayals of the queer, queer art or the queer in art, New Queer Cinema, installation art and the queer, queering dance, and the queer in television. Essays that study the queer subject in other visual cultural mediums or from other critical perspectives are welcome as well.

Essays should be between 5000-8000 words and should follow the MLA format for citations. Endnotes should be manually entered. For any images used, the authors must ensure proper permission is obtained for publication.
