    Great newsletter and list, as always!

    Here’s another one for you!

    Queer Modernism(s) II Conference

    ‘Reed / slashed and torn / but doubly rich’ – H.D.

    After the resounding success of the first Queer Modernism(s) conference in 2017, we are excited to announce the CfP for Queer Modernism(s) II: Intersectional Identities, set to be held on April 12th & 13th 2018 at the University of Oxford. Queer Modernism(s) II is an interdisciplinary, international conference exploring the place of queer identity in modernist art, literature and culture, with an emphasis on intersecting identities. Panelists are invited to question, discuss and interrogate the social, sexual, romantic, artistic, affective, legal and textual relationship between queer identity and modernity.

    The CfP closes December 18th 2017. Decisions will be made in early January.
