           ** DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS: 31 MAY 1995 **
 
(NOTE: any questions should be directed to: [log in to unmask])
 
An international colloquium aimed at mapping the state of gay and
lesbian studies in southern Africa will be held at the University of
Cape Town, South Africa, on 20 and 21 October 1995.  Keynote
addresses will be delivered by internationally acclaimed Gay and
Lesbian Studies critics.  Papers are invited under the following
proposed topics:
 
1. A white man's disease?  Homosexuality/African culture: A challenge
to anthropology in Africa.
2. South Africa's bill of rights: Does the emphasis on gender
obfuscate Gay and Lesbian diversity in human and civil rights debates?
3. Hidden, even more "hidden from history".  Elaborating methods to
retrieve and to write a social history of Gays and Lesbians in
southern Africa.
4. The queer obsession of Afrikaans literature: internalizing
oppression?
 
Two round-table discussions are envisaged.  Suggestions for topics
and round-tables are welcome.  There will be no parallel sessions.
Papers not to exceed 20 minutes, excluding question time.  The
proceedings will be published as the first volume of "African Gay and
Lesbian Studies".
