Why and how does the ancient world still matter to the history of sexuality?
NOTCHES: (re)marks on the history of sexuality invites submissions on histories of sexuality in the ancient world and historical responses to antiquity. We welcome blog posts (1000-1500 words); interviews with scholars, archivists, and activists; as well as submissions to our “Archives of Desire” (500-1000 words) series in which historians reflect on specific primary sources and their value in researching or teaching histories of sexuality.
Possible topics for exploration might include but are by no means limited to:
- Sexual values and practices in the ancient world (topics need not be confined to ancient Greece and Rome)
- The aesthetics of desire
- Hellenistic Greece and sexuality
- Religion and sexuality
- Geographical and temporal continuities and differences in sexualities
- Histories of marriage and other unions
- Food and sexuality
Style and image guidelines:
- Submissions should be written for a non-specialist and international audience. Therefore, avoid jargon and use hyperlinks – not footnotes – to clarify terms or concepts that may be unfamiliar to a general readership.
- Include at least one relevant image for which you have obtained permission and caption your image with clear attribution information. We welcome your use of a range of sources such as movies or sound files.
- Include a short hyperlinked author bio and photo with your submission

Send submissions to Dr. Jennifer Ingleheart (jennifer.ingleheart @ durham.ac.uk) by March 31 2016. All submissions to NOTCHES will undergo an internal peer-review process. Proposals and queries are most welcome.
