Queerness and Empire, 1871-1918
CfP Panel Series: Queerness and Empire, 1871-1918
Forty-Third Annual Conference of The German Studies Association
Oct. 3-6, 2019, Portland, OR
Organizers: Ilinca Iurascu & Ervin Malakaj
The organizers invite proposals for presentations for a series of panels broadly devoted to the scholarship of queer cultures of Imperial Germany (1871-1918). We welcome contributions that examine a wide range of subjects inspired by, but not limited to, recent work on the history of sexology, early psychology, criminology, legal studies/law, and performance culture.
We hope to feature work by scholars working in or across fields such as literary studies, art history, film and visual studies, cultural history, disability studies, critical race theory, political theory, and anthropology, among others. We are particularly interested in presentations that examine the role of book and media history in the creation of knowledge about or by queer subjects and welcome transnational approaches.
Please direct questions and abstracts (350 words accompanied by a bio) to both Ilinca Iurascu & Ervin Malakaj by January 20, 2019.
