Call for Papers: Feminist Media Histories “Gender and Labor in Media Histories” (due Jan. 15, 2017)

CFP: Feminist Media Histories “Gender and Labor in Media Histories.”

Guest editor Denise McKenna

Due: January 15, 2017

“We invite proposals for a special issue of Feminist Media Histories on the topic of Gender and Labor. All media production depends on the combined effort of skilled workers whose labor is circumscribed by gender and by historical context. Recent scholarship in The Routledge Companion to Labor and Media (Maxwell, 2015) demonstrates the complex and expansive issues raised by research into media labor, from international outsourcing and labor activism to the impact of contemporary neoliberal policies. This issue will add to a growing body of scholarship by focusing on the question of how gender and labor intersect in media production. We are interested in articles that will explore this question in relation to a range of media and historical contexts, and are particularly interested in submissions from beyond North America and the UK.”
