CFP: Histories of Sexuality in the Time of Crisis

A workshop at Queen’s University, Canada, Nov. 8-9, 2024

The Journal of the History of Sexuality invites proposals for a workshop to be held at Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada. Participants are encouraged to consider how their research on the history of sexuality can respond to moments of global crisis.

How will the field respond to a world increasingly scarred by climate change, the rise of the global right, the erosion of gender, trans and queer rights, healthcare inequalities, migrant crises, wealth gaps, racial discrimination, caste violence, political misinformation, and war? Can our methodologies and tools be deployed to reimagine calamities, obstructions, and setbacks as sites of resistance and opportunity?  

Participants will be able to discuss their submissions as well as the publication process with the editors and to have their work considered for publication in the JHS. The workshop will be held on Nov. 8-9, 2024 at Queen’s University, Canada.  300-word abstracts and a one-page C.V. to jhseditor@queensu.ca with the subject “Sexuality History Workshop” by March 10, 2024.

Queen’s University is located on the traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee territory. We acknowledge this territory’s significance for the Indigenous Peoples who lived and live upon it and whose practices are tied to the land.
