Thanks for proposing this BoF Michele. The "feminists and queers" is an
interesting and provocative conjunction. Queer<y>ing Internet Research - the
olde english meaning of queer, the verb form would be a very useful
discussion. Interesting that it occupies very little <visible> airtime on
this list. I suppose, what I am saying is something close to the notion that
the centre needs to be disrupted. Count me in.
