For writers and artists such as David Hockney, Christopher Isherwood, John Rechy, Paul Monette and Gore Vidal, Los Angeles provided the literary backdrop for gay communion and protest. As part of the upcoming EBAAS conference in April 2018, we are recruiting papers for a panel session exploring how and why Los Angeles has represented such a crucial stage for dissent for homosexual writers over the course of the twentieth century.
We welcome submissions for 20-minute papers relating to twentieth century homosexual literature and the following topics:
Queer, Gender and Feminist Theory
Space, Place and Architecture
Ecocriticism and Environmentalism
Race and Immigration studies
Please send a 250-word abstract of your proposed paper and a short biography to Eleri Watson (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 25th September.
