DEADLINE:  NOVEMBER 16, 2020

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 queer people and politics (particularly the 2020 U.S. elections), queers and the Black Lives Matter and #MeToo movements and queer representation in media and the press.
