Queer Studies Easter Symposium 2007

Deadline: December 15, 2006

CALL FOR PAPER PROPOSALS

Queer Studies Easter Symposium 2007

8th of April - 14th of April, 2007
Mexico City

Deadline for Abstract Submission: 15. December 2006

The Enkidu International Society for Cultural History and Cultural Studies
(CHiCS) in Mexico City invites the global community to a vibrant and
exciting multi- disciplinary, multi-lingual and multi-cultural Queer Studies
Easter Symposium in Mexico City in April 2007. The conference aims at
exploring recent developments in  theory and method in Queer studies as well
as the broad themes of sexual diversities through time and space, gender
constructions, sex-gender subjectivities, and  sexual identity constructions
from a wide and diverse range of perspectives.

In 2007 the program for the Queer Studies Easter Symposium will be organised
in a large number of special thematic sessions and sub-conferences covering
a  highly diverse series of topics extending from for example a special
session on „Sexual Diversities in the Islamic World" to "The History of GLBT
Activism", "Sexual  Diversities and Disabilities", "Traditional sexualities
and western sexual identity constructions" and "Ethnographic studies of
eroticism & fetishism".

Papers are welcomed on virtually all related topics and themes,
independently of time, period and geographical focus. Also papers of
comparative phenomena will be  considered. Interdisciplinary perspectives
are especially appreciated since all these topics in themselves stretch
across several disciplines: history, cultural studies,  literary studies,
linguistics, psychology, political sciences, pedagogy, ethnology,
anthropology, sociology...

Interpretations of the conference themes ranging from the predictable to the
surprising are encouraged.

The conference aims at bringing together academics working in all relevant
disciplines as well as activists, artists and other professionals, and
promoting innovative  multidisciplinary and multicultural exchange and
dialogue.

Graduate and postgraduate students are encouraged to attend and present
papers.

CHICS' academic conferences are characterized by traditional paper
presentations in panel sessions with three speakers each, followed by lively
exchange,  dialogue and interaction between speakers and audience in many
small groups, workshops and seminars rather than by formal plenary sessions.
Our conferences  provide a forum for diverse voices from all over the world,
to come together and make connections across linguistic, cultural and
academic barriers.

The conference sessions will be conducted in Spanish and English. Some
sessions will be bilingual and conducted in both languages with
interpreters. Other  sessions will have simultaneous translations. Many
sessions will be conducted with interpreters for sign language (on request).

* Paper and panel proposals

500 word abstracts should be submitted to the organising committee in
English, Castilian, German or French by 15. December 2006. The conference
languages will  be English and Castilian.

Papers should be of approximately 20 - 30 minutes duration (circa 8 - 10
pages). Other forms of presentation, for instance workshops, panel debates
and poster  sessions will be considered on request. Typically, a panel of
academic papers includes 3 (maximum 4) speakers and 1 moderator (session
chair). Each session will  last for 2 hours allowing for 30 minutes for each
speaker and a further 30 minutes for questions and discussion.

* Proposals for panel sessions

Proposers should submit:

(1)       Session title and a session intro (ca 100 words),

(2)       Paper titles,

(3)       Abstracts for each paper (500 words),

(4)       Short biography for each participant and the panel chair (ca

(5)       Institutional affiliation and address for each participant,

(6)       Audio-visual and other technical requirements.

If you would like to propose a panel session, and want assistance in finding
speakers and/or a session chair, we can publish a call for papers for your
panel session  on the conference web site and distribute it in our
newsletter. If you have an idea for a thematic panel session and would like
