Asexuality Studies Tumblr, AVEN CAKE, and More News

The Asexuality Studies Tumblr has recently begun and, in the author’s words, is directed mostly to the following audience: “Help! I’m in a freshman English class and I want to write about asexuality! What do I do?” Users are encouraged to submit any questions regarding “existing research, community statistics, or community history.”

Also, AVEN CAKE is having an Un-conference and after-party/AVEN Prom on Saturday, April 12, 2014, in New York City. Visit their WordPress site for more info!

Both resources have been added to the link list on right sidebar of this website for further reference.

Reminder: Paper and panel submissions for the Regulating Intimacy Graduate Symposium are due April 30, 2014. The symposium will be held October 17–19, 2014 at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Please click the above link for more information.

Lastly, Columbia law professor Elizabeth F. Emens published an academic article earlier this year regarding asexuality: “Compulsory Sexuality.” She says “Part III.E discusses jurisdictions with anti-discrimination laws covering asexuality (especially p. 362 and thereabouts), as part of Part III’s broader discussion of how U.S. law looks through the lens of asexuality.” The article PDF is free to download.
