We are considering proposals for sessions organized around a theme, special panels, and individual papers.  Sessions are scheduled in 1½ hour slots, typically with four papers or speakers per standard session.  Presentations should not exceed 15 minutes.  As always, proposals addressing any topic at the intersection of culture and queerness are welcome.

 

This year, we are especially eager to receive proposals concerning LGBTQ people and politics, queers and so-called religious freedom legislation, and the 50th anniversary of Stonewall.
