CFP: Feminism, media and care

The journal Feminist Media Studies invites authors to send papers on the topic “Feminism, media and care”.

“The gendered dynamics of care have long been, and continue to be, a key concern for feminist scholars, particularly as responsibilities for care labor still fall disproportionately on women”, the CFP announcement states.

  • Gendered dynamics of care labor
  • Care labor and media industries
  • Care, ageing and gender
  • Gendered discourses of care
  • Media representations of care
  • Neoliberalism, gender and care
  • Implications of diverse intersectionalities including generation, race, class, sexuality, ability
