InterAlia is a new international electronic journal of queer studies published in Poland and peer-edited by scholars based in Poland, Germany, and the U.S. The journal is targeted at students, scholars, and activists who are interested in non-normative sexuality and have access to the web.
We believe that queer studies should be practiced with both an emphasis on local articulations of queer identities and queer politics, and a serious engagement with processes of globalization. It is our hope that this electronic journal will secure a stronger place for Eastern/Central European queer studies on the map and foster the growth of queer communities.
Among the issues we hope our contributors will address is the translatability of queer concepts across cultural and linguistic borders; the relationship between queer theory and activism; the possibility of reconciling the different positionings within the queer community that are related to such factors as gender, race, class, age, sexual practices, and geographical location; the relevance of queer studies for understanding the discourses, cultural practices, and institutions that surround us; and the potential of queer as a counterdiscourse or counterpractice. The next deadline for paper submissions is October 30, 2006.
