Queer at Camp

For an edited book volume, we seek analyses of camp as a queer time and/or place. We mean summer camp primarily but not narrowly; the temporalities and iterations of camp are many. Camp is a powerful site of bonding, romance, and/or sex, of heightened or marked relations of gender and/or sexuality. Homophobia has marked traditional forms of camping, especially those for boys, even as there are now camps for queer youth, such as Camp Aranu'tiq, founded to serve transgender youth. Submissions should be interrogative but format is open. Submissions are due by Friday, April 15, 2016. For more information or to submit a proposal, please contact the editors Kenneth Kidd & Derritt Mason at: kbkidd@ufl.edu and derritt.mason@ucalgary.ca.
