    Call for Papers | “Body and Sexuality: Beyond Cultural Binaries”, Special Issue of Language, Literature, and Interdisciplinary Studies | Call ends February 15, 2023

    The heteronormative paradigms of sexuality oversimplify the lived experiences of body and overlook the pitfalls of essentialism, biologism and naturalism. So, the questions germane to this area are: How does the focus on material body and its sexuality make it a site of socio-political inscription? How does the “pharmaco-pornographic regimes,” to use Paul Preciado’s phrase, reformulate the bodily identity in twenty-first century? How does politics of difference negotiate and overcome the so-called discursivation of gendered bodies?

    Call for Papers | “Painful Pleasure, Pleasurable Pain”, Special Issue of Journal for the Study of British Cultures | Call ends July 1, 2020

    Pain and pleasure are operative in the negotiation of the limits of the normative and the transgressive, but they are also intertwined within realms that are considered to be part of everyday culture and, as such, challenge the traditional dichotomy associated with both concepts – from the mother giving birth, to the marathon runner pushing his/her body to the limit, to the pleasures arising from modifiable flesh (e.g., tattoos, piercings etc.).

    Call for Abstracts | The Speculative Body: Race, Gender and Sexuality in the Televisual Imagination | Call ends October 15, 2018

    We understand “body” in a broad sense, both encompassing but also expanding outside of the (presumed) domains of gender, race, and sexuality to question and destabilize the boundaries of both the human and the national “body”. All disciplines are welcome, but writers must anchor their analysis in a televisual story accessible to US audiences.

    Call for Papers | Endangered bodies: Representing and Policing the Body in Western Popular Culture | International Conference, October 8–9, 2018, University of Lisbon, Portugal. Call ends July 31,...

    The notion of ‘endangered bodies’, or bodies in danger, arises from our concern with current Western political and socio-economic tendencies and practices against the discriminated or disenfranchised Other, whose body is physically, materially and symbolically subjected to internal pressures towards normalization and homogenization.

    Call for Papers | Uniformly discussed: Sportswomen’s apparel | Anthology, edited by Linda K. Fuller. Call ends June 15, 2018

    Titillating or tortuous, appealing or atrocious, skimpy or serious, the uniforms that sportswomen wear have long been under scrutiny.

    Public defence of doctoral thesis | Sexual Relationships between Athletes and Coaches: Love, Sexual Consent, and Abuse by Susanne Johansson

    Coach-athlete sexual relationships (CASR) and sexual harassment and abuse (SHA) in sport can profoundly impact athletes’ welfare and performance. Yet, it is often ignored due to sensitivity, secrecy, and lack of knowledge. This is the first thorough study of SHA in sport and legal, consensual, same-sex CASR in Sweden.
