CFP: Special Issue of Journal of Mundane Behavior - Mundane Sex
Call for Papers Deadline:
Journal of Mundane Behavior looks to study mundane sex as the topic of its second special issue, to appear as JMB 3.1 in February 2002. We are soliciting papers dealing with the everydayness and ordinariness of sex and sexuality to be considered for inclusion in this issue.
Everyone knows that sex is not necessarily all that it’s cracked up to be. Passionate sexual relationships may eventually fade; the overuse of public representations of sex and sexuality eventually leave us blasé; and even the most extreme versions of sex and sexuality have become domesticated. We also face the creation of widely disparate notions of sex, sex roles, and genders, making it appear as though we are stuck between traditional conceptions of sex and gender and a new multiplicity of genders, gender orientations, and sexualities. Put another way, “sex,” however construed, is one of the most fundamentally mundane aspects of our existence.
The deadline for the submission of articles for our Mundane Sex issue is October 5, 2001. Papers should be sent as MS Word attachments to our Special Issue Editor, Kimberly Mahaffy (firstname.lastname@example.org) and should follow JMB submission guidelines, available on our web site (http://mundanebehavior.org).
