UCLA’s 13th Annual Queer Studies Conference
October 14-15, 2011
Call for Papers
Deadline May 13, 2011
UCLA’s LGBTS Program is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for its upcoming Queer Studies Conference featuring presentations by graduate students as well as faculty and advanced undergraduates.
This year’s conference will explore and exploit issues of fashion, queerly construed. We wish to invite a wide range of questions and panels on subject topics as drag, female masculinities, male femininities, queer making and self-fashioning, cloning and styling, and, of course, the culture and politics of the fashion industry itself. Questions of class, economics, history, ethnicity, race, (im)migration, geography, exploitation, and sublimation are at the forefront of our query. We seek to know what might be a new analytic or interdisciplinary methodology through which to attend to multiple registers of fashion.
Jack Halberstam, Monica Miller, Mignon R. Moore,
Karen Tongson, and Deborah R. Vargas
“Queerture: A night of rocket science and fashion design”
with artistic director Tania Hammidi
Proposals for individual papers should take the form of abstracts; panel proposals should also include both a list of participants and paper abstracts. CVs must accompany all abstracts. 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 abstracts and CVs: May 13, 2011
