CFP: “Comparative Approaches to Early Modern Sexualities in Literature and Culture” [UPDATE] November 15th, 2011 | cfp.english.upenn.edu
by Jessica C. Murphy
This seminar, a session to be held at ACLA 2012 Conference at Brown University, March 29h -April 1st, invites papers that present new interdisciplinary perspectives to explore “traveling” sexualities in the early modern world. Considering sexuality through various sites of “global” interactions, dialogues, circulating discourses and practices, and translations, which put pressure on traditional gender and sexual binaries and geographical boundaries, this seminar calls for papers analyzing non-heteronormative sexual interactions and/or reconfigurations of gender roles in early modern societies. Although we strongly encourage papers that address eastern and western encounters and interactions, we welcome papers analyzing other territorial interactions as well.
