The journal Teaching Media Quarterly is calling papers for the upcoming special issue “Teaching Intersectionality and Media”. The journal is interested in how instructors teach the concept of intersectionality as an analytical tool for understanding media images, messages, platforms, production, fandom, audiences, etc. Additionally, they are interested in the ways instructors engage critically with media to assist students’ understanding of intersectionality and their examination of their own positionality.
