Crystal Queer

Clarity and understanding, sight and knowledge, are so intimately linked in contemporary discourse that we rarely find ourselves interrogating why this connection is made, how this invisible link works to produce crucial notions of what knowledge is, and who comes to know it.

We welcome proposals from a variety of disciplines across the humanities including, but not limited to: Literary Studies, Translation Studies, Film and Media Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Disability Studies, Cultural Studies, History and Historiography, Philosophy, Critical Race Studies, and Critical Ethnic Studies

Please send an abstract (300 words max), a title for the presentation (20 minutes max), and a short bio (50 words max) including your name, email address, degree level and institutional affiliation to: complit.iu@gmail.com (both in the body of the email and as an attachment) by January 30, 2016.
