CfP: (Virtual) LGBTQ Studies at the Mid-Atlantic Popular Culture Association

The LGBTQ Studies Area of MAPACA invites proposals for the 2022 Virtual Conference, which will be held November 10-12, 2022. We seek papers or panels of relevance to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities.

Research in this area uses interdisciplinary ways of thinking to understand the development and construction of sexual identity and the diversity of sexuality in society. We welcome contemporary, critical, and/or historical perspectives.

CFP: Narratives of Wellbeing

The critical turn in wellbeing studies asks not only how wellbeing can be defined and measured, but what is created and excluded by the process of striving for and articulating wellbeing. Such perspectives move away from the focus on wellbeing indicators to ask: what we are talking about when we talk about wellbeing? And how might wellbeing be understood, experienced and mobilised differently in different contexts? 

CFP - MidAtlantic Popular and American Culture Association (MAPACA) Conference - Sexuality and Erotica

The Sexuality and Erotica area for MAPACA is seeking submissions for our November 10 - 12 conference in Princeton!

Our area, Sexuality and Erotica, allows for a wide interpretation of the topic. We are open to any papers that address any aspect of human sexual experience and erotica in any form. Scholars are welcome from all areas to explore the cultural, scientific, and artistic elements of sexuality; particularly how sexuality intersects with race, class, disability, gender, and ethnicity. 

CFP Edited Volume: Race and Racism in Divided Germany

We seek proposals for chapters for an edited volume tentatively titled “Race and Racism in Divided Germany,” which will bring together new scholarship on the history of racialization and racism in both East and West Germany during the Cold War and since unification. We are particularly interested in work about the period between the 1970s and the 1990s.
