We are very excited to help announce Academic Bi an International (English-language) Mailing List/Yahoo Group, started by a Bi-identified Israeli Academic and Activist for the Discussion of and the Exchange of Information and Ideas about Topics related to Bisexual/Pansexual Theory, Queer Theory and the Academic Study of Bisexuality, Pansexuality, Fluidity, et. al. Other things that would be appropriate to Post to the Group include but are not limited to:
o Calls for Submissions
o Requests for Participants in Studies
o RFP's (Request For Proposals)
o Announcements of Publications of Works pertaining to the subject(s)
To join click on this link: Academic Bi or send and email to academic_bi-subscribe (at) yahoogroups (dot) com
We see this List as an important "Also" rather than as an "Instead of" some of the older more established Academic LGBT Lists (such as QStudies) where it is Very Important to ALSO keep Bisexual, Fluid, Pansexual & Queer-identified Voices and we all hope that there will be MUCH Cross-pollination.
Additionally, it is hoped that many in the new group will consider attending BiReCon (Bisexual Research Conference) which will take place at the University of East London, Docklands, UK on 26th August 2010. BiReCon will be the first day of the 10th International Conference on Bisexuality (10 ICB) in 2010 and is the second one-day academic conference on research into bisexuality, pansexuality, fluidity, et. al..
Even if you find that this List is not a good fit for you personally, could we also ask all of you to Please Circulate This Information Widely to ALL LGBT & "Straight-But-Not-Narrow" venues and people who might be interested and would find this Additional Venue to be a useful tool.
