Asexualities: Feminist and Queer Perspectives

Revised and Expanded 10-Year Anniversary Edition (2024 Publication with Routledge)


Since Asexualities: Feminist and Queer Perspectives was published in 2014, we have seen exponential growth in scholarship on asexuality as well as more widespread recognition of asexuality in socio-political life, including increased asexual representation in art and media, a surge in people identifying as asexual and aromantic, and a greater presence of asexuality in the public lexicon. 


This new volume picks up where the first edition left off, bringing in new work from global perspectives, posthuman speculative imaginings, additional attention to racialization, transgender perspectives, and aro-spectrum identity and experience. This new and expanded edition asks what our broadened and deepened understandings of asexuality can teach us about race, sex, gender, citizenship, and ability, and also how our studies of these topics can expand our thinking on asexuality.


We are seeking submissions of abstracts up to 250 words for proposed full-length previously unpublished essays on asexuality or aromanticism in relation to any of the following topics:


  • Activist and intersectional approaches to community and political organizing

  • Ace/Aro-spectrum community organizing in non-American contexts

  • Aromantic perspectives on a/sexuality

  • Femininity/transfemininity

  • Masculinity/transmasculinity

  • Nonbinary, agender, trans experience and identity

  • Race and racialization

  • Sexual citizenship

  • Disability 

  • Neurodiversity

  • Histories of science 

  • Aging

  • Posthumanism

  • More-than-human worlds/worldmaking

  • Decolonial, anti-colonial, postcolonial thought

  • Demisexuality
