Dr Lindy Orthia (Australian National University) and I are preparing a proposal for a new book entitled ‘Queering Science Communication: Representations, Theory and Practice’ and we are looking for contributors.
We invite expressions of interest from researchers to write full chapters on key topics in this area, and from practitioners to write ‘practice spotlights’ about queer-relevant science communication activities and projects.
We seek a diversity of perspectives in this volume and will explore queerness in the broadest sense, inclusive of lesbian, gay, bi+, trans, gender diverse, genderqueer, non-binary, intersex, asexual, agender, aromatic and other rainbow identities.
We strongly encourage chapter EOIs and spotlight proposals from LGBTQIA+ people, particularly members of First Nations, ethnic minority and non-Western communities, and LGBTQIA+ people from other marginalised communities and groups.
For details of what we’re looking for, see our Call For Papers here. Our deadline for expressions of interest is 28 February 2021. EOIs are 200-300 words for research chapters or 100 words for practice spotlights. Don’t forget to include a bio!
