Perspectives on Music Production: Gender in Music Production

 

===============================================

Call for Contributions

===============================================

 

Deadline for proposals: 9th April 2018

The music production industry has, for many years, been viewed as male dominated. Despite many examples of diversification and acknowledgement of the issues (such as the Audio Engineering Society’s ‘He For She’ campaign), gender representation within music production is considered limited. The editors welcome abstracts for chapters in a forthcoming Routledge edited volume entitled Gender in Music Production. The scope for contributions are listed below.

In December 2012, a young woman named Jyoti Singh was raped in New Delhi while returning home after watching a film with her friend. The incident quickly became a sensational news story in both national and international media, leading to an unprecedented amount of popular protests in New Delhi and other Indian cities. To be precise, the Jyoti Singh Rape Case proved to be a watershed moment in the history of the contemporary gendered mobilizations in India, which unleashed a series of questions for the Indian women’s movement.

Call for Essay Proposals on the Writings of Jesmyn Ward

Special Issue of the Xavier Revew

 

In August 2017, Ron Charles, editor of Book World wrote in the The Washington Post:

          Six years ago, a young, relatively unknown writer from Mississippi published Salvage the Bones. In lush prose that felt determined to sprout off the page, the novel described a            poor African American family struck by Hurricane Katrina. From its modest beginnings, Salvage the Bones went on to win the 2011 National Book Award for Fiction and to                    establish its author, Jesmyn Ward, as one of the most powerfully poetic writers in the country.
