CFP Kink and Popular Culture Edited Collection

Amber R. Clifford's picture

Additional authors sought for an edited collection entitled "Binding and Unbinding Kink: Pain, Pleasure and Power in Theory and Practice." The volume contains chapters written by academics from multiple disciplines (Anthropology, Sociology, History, Literature, Economics, Cultural Studies) as well as by practitioners of kink, including horror-burlesque performers in Toronto, and Shibari kink witches in Brooklyn, and acclaimed BDSM photographers. The diverse chapters coalesce around the major themes of gender identity and sexual expression, and are unique in their integration of both theory and practice. The chapters in this collection have been written, reviewed, and revised, and are under supervision of a publisher. However, I seek 4-5 additional authors to add to the collection, to take the place of a few who withdrew from the project in order to complete other work. Please send abstratcs and contact information to Amber R. Clifford-Napoleone, clifford@ucmo.edu, no later than July 1 at midnight. Seeking papers that are written and ready for review, not papers that must be written. Advanced doctoral students, practitioners, artists, are all encouraged to submit abstracts.
