The conference welcomes talks or pre-planned panels dealing with any of
the following diverse topics/questions/concerns:

*	Queer Globalization: On cultural and/or economic exchanges
*	Queer politics and theories of migrations
*	Queer translations: How to "do queer studies" in non-US contexts
*	Between Sex and Gender: On the politics and poetics of
trans/inter sexuality
*	Does queer have a race; is race queer? 
*	The future of queer activism
*	The ethical impetus of queer criticism

*         Queer embodiment: Performance, Affect, Style 

Proposals for individual papers should take the form of abstracts of not
more than 300 words; panel proposals of less than 500 words and should
include a list of both participants and paper abstracts.

Since one of the goals of the conference is to encourage the exchange of
ideas across academic generations, we invite presentations by graduate
students, undergraduate students, and faculty scholars.  Submissions
from undergraduates should be accompanied by a brief letter from a
faculty member highlighting the strengths of both the student and the
student's proposal.

 

Deadline for Proposals: June 25th 2010
