CFP: Feminist Media Histories, Special Issue on Asian Media


Feminist Media Histories, Special Issue on Asian Media

CALL FOR PAPERS – Deadline: October 1, 2017

Guest Editor: Yiman Wang

CFP: We invite proposals for a special issue of Feminist Media Histories on Asian Media. This issue probes the contested sites of practicing and theorizing feminist media in Asia. We encourage proposals that interrogate the concepts of “feminism,” “media” and “Asia” as interconnected historical categories that contribute to each other’s formation and reconfiguration. 

Potential topics include but are not limited to:        

•Female film and media practitioners working within and across Asia’s geopolitical borders in different eras

• Histories of feminist media works, ranging from film, television, video to internet media culture, social media, activist media; commercial, independent and the spectrum in between

• Female film and media historians and critics in the Asian context

• Gender in intersection with race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, national and transnational politics in varied media contexts

• Gender-conscious re-readings of female representation and performance in film and media works  

Interested contributors should contact guest editor Yiman Wang directly at: yw3@ucsc.edu

Proposals of 300 words are due no later than October 1, 2017. Contributors will be notified Oct 15, 2017. Article drafts will be due by Feb 1, 2018 and will then be sent out for anonymous peer review.
