Call for Chapter Proposals : Transgender Literary Theory and Criticism

Submission Deadline: Jul 15, 2020


Chapter proposals are invited for the edited book Transgender Literary Theory and Criticism. We are seeking chapters that show how transgender theory can provide novel insights for developing literary theory and conducting literary criticism, as well as chapters that analyze specific literary works that explore transgender identity and experience from the perspectives of a variety of literary theories.

Call For Paper

Interested authors should send a 300-word abstract, 200-word biography, and sample of a previously published chapter or article to Dr. Douglas Vakoch at by July 15, 2020. Authors will be notified whether their proposals are accepted by July 30, 2020. First drafts of full chapters are due by November 1, 2020, and final versions are due January 15, 2021. Both transgender and cisgender contributors are welcome. Preference will be given to authors who have completed their doctorates. Only previously unpublished works will be considered. We seek a broadly international group of scholarly contributors.

Chapters may draw on transgender theory and/or one or more traditional schools of literary theory, including but not limited to queer theory, critical theory, feminism, psychoanalysis, cultural materialism, poststructuralism, contextualism, postmodernism, postcolonialism, posthumanism, transhumanism, transfeminism, ecocriticism, and queer ecologies. Chapters that develop original transgender literary theories are especially welcome. Proposals to write the introduction to the book are also encouraged.
