The LGBTQ Studies Area of MAPACA welcomes proposals of relevance to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities.
Research in this area uses interdisciplinary ways of thinking to understand the development and construction of sexual identity and the diversity of sexuality in society. We seek papers from contemporary, critical, or historical perspectives.
Topics of interest include:
• Apps and dating in the digital age
• “Bury your gays,” queerbaiting, and television representation
• Drag culture and performance
• Femininities, masculinities, intersections of gender and sexuality
• Globalization, tourism, and queer migration
• LGBTQ Cinema
