This panel welcomes research on literary works that explore possibilities of other modes of relating and belonging that take on new significance based on cooperation, support and non-heterosexual/non-reproductive behaviors. While feminism and queer studies have demonstrated the normative construction and performative aspects of gender and sexuality, it is crucial to examine how these theorizations transcend North American and European contexts in which they are articulated. By questioning traditional forms of kinship, Luso-Hispanic fiction (period open) can offer new perspectives on queer kinship bonds. Papers on debates surrounding the relationship between gender, sexuality and identity are welcome. Debates regarding the following areas are also of interest: bodies and desire; constructions of femininities and masculinities; eroticism; family, queer communities, etc.
