SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS: Queering Paradigms 6
Deadline extension: New deadline 30 November 2014.
After an exciting and highly productive five year journey through four continents, the Queering Paradigms conference will visit its point of origin again in its sixth incarnation. Queering Paradigms 6 is planned to be held in South England 20-25 July 2015.
Queering the academic conference format, QP6 will be hosted at two places: at the University of Winchester and at the other end of the pilgrims’ way, at QP’s birth place at Canterbury Christ Church University. QP6 part-merges with VariAbilit(ies) II (questioning the dis/abled binary), organised by Chris Mounsey (email@example.com) to form a conference continuum, variably the “same only different”. A rest/sightseeing/travel day is included in the combined schedule:
20 July 2015 VariAbilit(ies) II, University of Winchester
21 July 2015 Queering Paradigms 6 & VariAbilit(ies) II, University of Winchester
22 July 2015 REST/TRAVEL/SIGHTSEEING DAY
23 July 2015 Queering Paradigms 6 & VariAbilit(ies) II, Canterbury Christ Church University
24 July 2015 Queering Paradigms 6, Canterbury Christ Church University
25 July 2015 Queering Paradigms 6: Emerging scholar’s day, Centre for Gender, Sexuality & Writing, University of Kent at Canterbury
The combined conferences focus on the main theme of
Ethics Beyond Troubling: Towards Queer(ed) (Vari)Ability.
The QP6 conference aims to establish a multidisciplinary and bi- (or multi)- locational discourse around the possibility, challenges and potential of Intersectional Post/Queer Ethics and Practices beyond subversion and troubling. In addition, papers from all disciplines and methodologies concerned with queer life, culture and practices will add to the multi-/trans-/inter-disciplinary workshop style discourse of listening and learning, which characterizes the QP project.
We invite submissions of proposals from all angles of queering; and in particular from the area of Post/Queer(ed) Ethics (Applied or Theoretical) intersecting with, troubling and transcending (paradigms in) Health, Psychology, Special Needs Education and Disability Studies. Further intersections could include age; race/ethnicity; socio-economic status; religion/faith/irreligion.
Paper (poster) abstracts and panel proposals are invited by 30 November 2014. Please send to Prof. B. Scherer, CCCU (firstname.lastname@example.org). Paper abstracts should be around 300 words long and include an indication whether the paper is intended to be an original (unpublished and not under review) contribution to the QP6 book, to be published 2016 with Peter Lang, Oxford (containing 16-20 chapters). Full papers are expected to be submitted by 1 May 201
