Call For Papers

November 15-18, 2018

San Antonio, TX


Call for abstract for preorganized panel: Men and Masculinities: Negotiating Gender, Sexuality, and Society


Please send abstracts of 300-400 words to organizers Bryan Roby (robyb@umich.edu) and Anne Marie Butler (abutler4@buffalo.edu) by Saturday, February 11th.


We invite you to submit abstracts for a panel on the theme of men and masculinities in the Middle East and its diaspora. Abstracts should present a clear, original argument and be grounded in established scholarship. Original scholarship may address any of the following questions, or may look at other related issues, intersections, and sources:


Under what framework do we understand the construction of men/manliness/masculinity within the Middle East (inclusive of the colonized and colonizer)? How can other fields inform us about potential theoretical pitfalls and shortcomings, that may emerge in the study of masculinity in the Middle East? Where do we place colonialism in our understanding of the development of Arab and/or Persian masculinity (e.g. What can homoerotic colonial encounters with the colonized tell us about popular understandings of Middle Eastern manhood?) Are any parts of the LGBTQI+ acronym useful points of departures for the study of the Middle East? Are there more productive Middle Eastern terminologies that may be translatable to other non-Anglophone communities (i.e. “mithli” being more akin to “same gender loving” framework rather than “gay”) or are some terminologies also quite damaging to local communities/used as slurs, and how is that negotiated within and without the LGBTQI+ community?
