The Journal of Lesbian Studies will be devoting a special issue to the topic of LESBIANS, SEXUALITY, AND ISLAM, edited by Huma Ahmed-Ghosh, firstname.lastname@example.org.
There has been very little published work on lesbians and Islam. Possible topics and methods include, but are not limited to religion, Quran, Hadith, Sharia, personal experiences of Muslim women, ethnic and regional diversities, oral histories, feminist theory, research, fiction, and poetry. Authors may use a pseudonym if they prefer.
Please send a one-page abstract of your proposed contribution to Huma Ahmed-Ghosh at email@example.com by October 1, 2011.
Proposals will be evaluated for originality and writing style, as well as how all the contributions fit together. Potential authors will be invited to write full articles in the range of 5,000 to 7,500 words.
We hope you will consider writing about your scholarship or experiences, so that this important topic receives the attention it deserves.
