Update on the 41st APEAA Conference at the University of Aveiro - 21-22 May 2021
First of all we would like to thank everybody for their patience and understanding when the 41st APEAA Conference at the University of Aveiro had to be cancelled due to the pandemic!
Given the ongoing uncertainty around the Covid pandemic, we have decided the best course of action is to hold the APEAA Conference entirely online, using Zoom. The new date is 21-22 May 2021, during Portuguese working hours.
This is of course disappointing, since we will be unable to see our colleagues face to face to exchange views at greater length, but circumstances dictate this format.
Representation of queer identities in twenty-first century popular television has undergone massive shifts in the last decade. Whilst queer representation has formed part of the bedrock of reality television, queer representation in scripted television has received less scholarly attention. Thus, scripted television will be the focus of this special issue of Queer Studies in Media & Popular Culture (Intellect).
