We are considering proposals for sessions organized around a theme, special panels, and/or 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 queers and politics, the implications for LGBTQ people in the health care funding debate, and queer communities.
