/thirdspace: a journal of feminist theory and culture/ invites contributions for its forthcoming issue on ‘The Future Landscape of Sexualities.’ Recognizing the central role which discussions of sexuality, identity, and culture have played in recent feminist scholarship, this issue will consider how sexuality informs gendered identities, as well as nodes of power including, race, class, ability, age, culture, nation, and religion. What does the future hold for human sexualities and sexual identities? How might current practices, assumptions, power relations, and identities shape these future sexualities? What new forms might sexualities evolve into in the future? How might these future sexualities transcend/reproduce current definitions of, and ideologies concerning, sexuality and sexual identity? Possible topics include:
· future utopic and dystopic sexualities
· role(s) of technologies (reproductive, virtual, synthetic) in the evolution and expression of sexuality
· the evolution of sex work
· queer sexualities
· inversions and convergences of sexuality and identity (including female masculinities and male femininities)
· the future of ‘normative’ masculinities and femininities
· sexualities and colour, sexualities and dis/ability, sexualities and age
· depictions of future sexualities in fiction, film, music, and art
Papers that ground speculation about the future with historical analyses of past transitions in sexualities are also welcome.
