>? uncover some of the blind spots within feminist and/or queer
>theory and practice?
>? help us reach a more nuanced understanding of the dynamics of
>gender, sex, race, ethnicity and class?
>We welcome _BOTH_ proposals that theorize these questions _AND_
>proposals that demonstrate practically (for example by means of
>textual analysis) how the exploration of pre-20th-century issues
>contributes to feminist and/or queer knowledge production today.
