CFP: Queer Representation Anthology from Routledge India

Calls for Submissions

Submit an abstract for a chapter in an anthology on Queer Representation in 21st Century Narratives and Popular Culture published by Routledge India. 

This edited book aims to put together the contemporary modes and sites of queer representation in the twenty-first century, which have undergone a massive shift with the emergence of streaming platforms and contemporary narratives that show a positive portrayal and positioning of queer identities. In India, contemporary scholarship, segregation and documentation of information pertaining to gender and sexual identities, is skewed more towards women’s representation, feminism and masculinities, and other allied areas. There still exist a dearth of scholarly documentation and engagement on queer sexualities through contemporary representations and narratives of change.

This proposed book aims to carefully identify and present different domains of queer representations based on specific thrust areas. Book chapters are invited from eminent academicians, activists, sociologists and researchers for the edited book. In sum, this edited book hopes to inaugurate the much needed literary and cultural debates on queer representation to strengthen the idea that queer subjects no longer function as palatable to the heteronormative gaze. Book chapters should not exceed 6000 words in APA format and explore queer identity and representation through contemporary queer narratives, popular culture, and visual culture. 

Interested contributors may send an extended abstract of not more than 500 words, with four keywords, along with a brief bio-note to the editors at [email protected] by July 25, 2021. Visit Queer Representation in 21st Century Narratives and Popular Culture for more information.
