Call for papers for a new anthology exploring the historical, social, and cultural role of the condom in society. Issues such as the condom in art and popular culture, the discourse of safe sex after the advent of HIV and AIDS, debates about condom distribution, and international perspectives on condoms and culture will be addressed. This will be an interdisciplinary volume, and contributions are especially encouraged from scholars in the fields of history, queer studies, gender studies, sexology, and anthropology. The editor is especially receptive to work dealing with issues of race and ethnicity. Original prose essays (autobiographical, for example) will also be considered. Some original fiction and artwork may possibly be included in this anthology.
Please send a 1-page summary of essay and a current CV to the email address below.
Deadline for receipt of materials is June 30, 2002.
