CFP: Sex and Violence

Journal: Australian Feminist Studies
Editors: Lisa Featherstone, Amanda Kaladelfos
Submission deadline for abstracts: November 17, 2012

Description:
»Recent work on sex and sexuality has much to offer the study of violence. Yet all too often, broad violence studies have not engaged with the latest scholarship on sexuality. This collection aims to refocus attention on the formative relationship between sex and violence. We ask contributors to consider how examining sexuality, in historical or contemporary perspective, changes and challenges current theories of violence. To what extent, for instance, do they take into account the many forms of gendered, sexual, and homophobic violence? Or the ways these have changed over time?
We call for papers which examine the complex and multifaceted relationship between sex and violence, one that often crosses the borders drawn by race, class, gender and sexuality. Contributors could examine the ways legal and scientific ideas about normality and perversity affirmed or renounced violent acts. Other submissions might consider the ways violence is enmeshed within, or challenged by, the social order and how violent acts changed variously across time, space and place.«
