Call for Papers: Special issue of the Journal of Lesbian Studies: THE INFLUENCE AND LEGACY OF BARBARA GRIER
Call for Papers Date:
To reflect on the influence and legacy of Barbara Grier (1933-2011), The Journal of Lesbian Studies will be devoting a thematic journal issue to the topic.
2011 witnessed the passing of Barbara Grier, an icon in lesbian literary history and feminist publishing. From her “Lesbiana” column in Daughters of Bilitis’ magazine The Ladder, to three editions of The Lesbian in Literature (1967, 1975, 1985), to her role as publisher of the Naiad Press from 1973-2003, Barbara Grier introduced hundreds of new lesbian books to readers and kept several lesbian classics on the literary horizon.
The Journal of Lesbian Studies is an interdisciplinary journal, thus, multi and interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged. We welcome proposals on the intersections of lesbian literary history, the lesbian feminist movement, feminist presses, and/or lesbian feminist publishing, including the work of Naiad Press authors. Proposals that discuss or contextualize the significance of Grier's work or influence are especially welcome.
Please direct inquiries or submit a proposal of no more than 500 words with a brief CV to guest editor Danielle M. DeMuth at email@example.com by December 20, 2012. Please put “JLS Special Issue” in the subject line.
Authors will be contacted in early January regarding their proposals. Final essays of approximately 5000-7500 words will be due April 1, 2013.
Please share this CFP with colleagues and students know about this project and feel free to post on relevant listservs.
