Editors of a book “Women in the Media: Who Creates the News?” call for book chapter proposals.
The book wants to examine the position and experience of women in the media in both respects, i.e 1) whether they are now experiencing the privilege of writing in the most important and most popular sections such as news, or are they still regulated to the place of women: health, lifestyle and food, and 2) whether they are used as sources by journalists and if so in which areas.
Proposed chapters should concentrate on the news production and aim to explore what topics women cover in respected case study, and for which stories are women used as sources. Chapters can be single studies but comparative and regional studies are particularly welcome.
Abstracts should be sent by 15 January 2018 to both editors, Martina Topic and Sydney Heifler, at the following email addresses: [email protected] and [email protected] Further information is available here.
