V Queer Studies
11 April - 16 April, 2011
» NEW: Registration form 2011 (all participant categories)
The International Society for Cultural History and Cultural Studies (CHiCS), AIDSinCULTURE.org and Enkidu Magazine invite the global community to a vibrant and exciting multi-disciplinary, multi-lingual and multi-cultural Queer Studies Easter Symposium in Mexico City in April, 2011.
In 2011, the Queer Studies Easter Symposium will take place for the fifth time. The conference continues the tradition established by the previous held events in this cycle which has developed into an annual academic tradition in Mexico City, bringing together scholars from all over the world to share and exchange their research, experiences and ideas in a truly multicultural, multilingual and interdisciplinary academic environment.
In 2011, the Symposium will run parallel to the conference: “Masculinities”. The conference seeks to unite historical, cultural, feminist and Queer perspectives, and we invite scholars and students interested in both fields cordially to submit paper proposals to both events.
The Symposium 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.
The conference “Masculinities” has this year a very broad, interdisciplinary scope and papers addressing virtually all cultural, social and artistic expressions and constructions of “masculinities” from a wide range of perspectives will be considered. Wide and diverse interpretations of the conference theme ranging from the predictable to the surprising are encouraged.
More than 400 scholars from more than 35 countries have participated in previous editions of the Symposium and the conference. The event promises to be equally diverse, multi-cultural and multi-lingual in 2011.
Last year, the Symposium filled up very quickly and sadly a number of very exiting papers could not be accommodated in the program on time. Early submission is therefore suggested.
