Call For Papers

Protean Desires:

Queering the Body, Transforming the Text

April 22nd 2016
Singleton Abbey, University of Swansea

Keynote Speaker: Professor Stephen Guy-Bray (University of British Columbia) 'The Location of Queerness'

We are inviting proposals for 20-minute papers exploring Gender Fluidity and Queer Theory across disciplines and historical periods. We welcome proposals from postgraduate and early career researchers as well as established scholars. Papers on the theme of fluidity of identity – within textual self-performance, or in the transmission of ideas between periods and disciplines, for example – will be especially welcome. But we encourage submissions on any topic, which may include the following:
The Relationship between Bodies and Texts
Queer Theoretical Approaches to the Body
The Articulation of Desire, both Historicised and De-Historicised
Transgender and Intersex Identity
Queerness and the Transmission & Consumption of Texts
Gender Identity & Modernity/Postmodernity

Please send abstracts of no more than 300 words to Jack Orchard (837501@swansea.ac.uk) and Maria Zygogianni (gencas.conferences@gmail.com) by 15th March 2016.
