Edited Volume - Revising Gender and Sexuality as Signs in French History (provisional)
Call for Papers Deadline:
Revising Gender and Sexuality as Signs in French History.
The idea of this volume is to collate a set of papers on gender and sexuality in their use as metaphors or signs for nation, republic, enemies, traitors, ideologies, power, heresy or other forms of political cause or identity across the long history of France, and to frame this collection as a new attempt to understand why such a strong pattern of this kind of metaphoric usage has recurred across such a long history. Papers will particularly focus on the instrumentalisation of gender and sexuality in politics of various kinds – the ‘sexualisation’ and ‘engendering’ of political phenomena, rather than the history of gender and sexuality in and of themselves. The volume will include papers by Fabrice Virgili, Christine Bard,
Richard Sonn, Marie-Paule Ha and Alison Moore, with further contributions now being sought.
Papers should be between 5000-7000 words.
Deadline for Abstracts: September 15th 2008
Deadline for Papers: November 1st 2008
