Call for Papers: Gender, Identity, Sex and Sexuality
The Gender, Identity, Sex and Sexuality Area Chair of the Northeast Popular/American Culture Association (NEPCA) seeks individual-paper proposals for presentation at NEPCA’s annual meeting, which will be held at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth October 31-November 1, 2008.
Submissions pertaining to any aspect of gender studies, LGBT studies, and/or sexuality studies are desired from scholars, educators, and students at all levels. Of particular interest are contributions that explore the representation and/or social construction of masculinity, femininity, gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders, and others in various media offerings (e.g., intriguing films, television programs, Internet sites, comic books, etc.) as well as reception studies pertaining to such media offerings. Additional topics of interest include, but are certainly not limited to, advertising images and appeals, coming-of-age narratives, HIV/AIDS, romantic and sexual relationships, and queer theory in its various applications. Individual presentations will be limited to approximately 20 minutes in length.
Interested individuals are asked to submit (1) a one-page abstract (including presentation title) and (2) a two- to three-sentence description of yourself, your background, and your qualifications by June 15, 2008. Decisions pertaining to the status of such proposals will be communicated within two weeks of receipt.
Please mail or e-mail abstracts to Kylo-Patrick Hart, Department of Communication and Media Studies, Plymouth State University, 17 High Street, MSC 60, Plymouth, NH 03264; firstname.lastname@example.org
NEPCA prides itself on holding conferences that emphasize sharing ideas in a non-competitive and supportive environment involving graduate students, junior faculty, and senior scholars.
