"Sexuality Out of Place"
Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference
March 31-April 01, 2006
CALL FOR PAPERS DEADLINE EXTENSION
David Halperin, English, University of Michigan
Christina Sharpe, English, Tufts University
This conference will examine the relationship of place, space, and geography with sexuality and will explore the different ways identity plays out when sexuality, sexual difference and geography are taken seriously. The conference welcomes graduate work--historical and contemporary--focused on discourse, narratives, and practices of sexuality understood through the prism of place and encourages approaches interrogating Western and colonial conceptions of sexuality and the division between Western and non-Western practices. Interdisciplinary work, proposals from all fields, as well as papers addressing pedagogy and curriculum are especially welcome.
Topics of particular interest include:
- Post-Colonial Visions of sexuality
- the Relationship of Race, Gender, and Sexuality
- Transnational and Migratory sexualities
- Urban (sub)cultures
- Sexual Economies
- "Queer Globalization"
- Visual Culture and Representation
