Short Abstract:

Queer intersectionalities is the premise that the discipline of folklore must learn to better address issues of sexuality and gender diversity throughout our scholarship. Queer theory both strengthens and is strengthened by folklore research methods and analytical frameworks.

Long Abstract

Queer intersectionalities is the premise that the discipline of folklore must learn to better address issues of sexuality and gender diversity throughout our scholarship. Likewise, it is the contention that queer theory can be strengthened and better nuanced through folklore research methods and analytical frameworks.

In order to encourage scholarship on LGBTQI+ folkloristics, we are seeking papers that address the intersections of folkloristics and queer theory, including but not limited to queer intersectionalities (race, class, gender, sexuality, disability, etc), queer geographies, queer temporalities, queer spiritualties, and queer methodologies. We likewise welcome material on two-spirited/transgender studies, marginality, post-coloniality, transnationalism, and translocality, hemispheric studies among other relevant themes within a queer folkloristics lens.

This discussion will be continued via a forthcoming special issue (2022) of the Journal of Folklore Research, likewise titled "Queer Intersectionalities in Folklore Studies"
