Registration for the "Bodies of Knowledge: Sexuality in the Archives"
conference is now open. 
This international conference, hosted by Centre for the History of
European Discourses at the University of Queensland, will be held from
April 26-28 2007 at the Queensland State Library, Brisbane. 
The turn to new theories and practices of the archive in critical
theory, cultural studies, queer theory, philosophy, sociology and
associated disciplines has had important repercussions for scholars
working on histories and philosophies of the body. This conference will
examine the impact of innovative recent work on archives and archival
practice for sexuality studies, gender studies and queer/GLBT studies.
The conference aims to interrogate how knowledge about the body is
collected and held, as well as how it is produced. Drawing together
scholars from a broad range of inter-disciplinary fields, it will
highlight scholarship about bodies, genders and sexuality that is
empirically grounded, document based, historically inflected,
theoretically informed and self-conscious of its relationship to
archival practice.
Keynote speakers include: 
Rosemarie Garland-Thomson 
Catherine Waldby 
Anjali Arondekar 
Elizabeth Kerekere 
Susan Stryker.
