UPDATE: Trans Literary Reader--Proposal Deadline Extended to 11/15/2011
We invite proposals for inclusion in an edited collection of essays that will approach literary texts (broadly conceived) from a trans-theoretical lens.
We are interested in essays that attend to the slippages, the connects and the disconnects between trans experience, trans theories, and trans readings of literary texts. We are also interested in essays that engage both the tensions and productive links between queer, trans and feminist approaches to literature, as well as the affects and rhetorics of embodied possibility within and across various generic, national, and temporal categories. We are particularly interested in essays that practice intersectional readings, looking at, for example, the confluence of ability, class, ethnicity, gender, and race.
Interested scholars should submit a current cv and 250- to 400-word abstract of the proposed essay by November 15, 2011. Scholars will be notified of the status of their proposal by December 1, 2011. Completed essays based on accepted proposals must be submitted by May 1, 2012.
Please send your MS Word compatible proposals (abstract and cv) to Rebekah Edwards, Kirsten Saxton, and Ajuan Mance (firstname.lastname@example.org).
