Call for Papers: WSQ (Women’s Studies Quarterly) Special Issue on Market

Guest Editors: Mara Einstein and Joe Rollins

Market is both a noun and a verb, a place where we shop and the act of selling. Market can be Wall Street or Main Street, psychological and physiological, traditional, viral or stealth. In the current period of global economic upheaval scholars from all disciplines need to interrogate the changing meanings, moods, and implications of the market. In this issue of WSQ we seek to consider consumption and markets anew, from feminist, queer, cultural, and critical perspectives. This issue will explore urgent questions related to markets. These include, but are not limited to: How might we get beyond the entrenched binaries of male/female, public/private, citizen/immigrant, producer/consumer that are central to so much thinking about markets? What does it mean to go shopping in the name of charitable giving or to purchase “green” products? How can commodities that are “locally grown” survive in the face of globalization? How does globalization compare to colonial trade? How are these changes affecting the ways we understand images, brands, icons, labels, and the meanings these transmit? How did modern consumer behavior and iconography develop? How have literary texts shaped or challenged our sense of the market? When did the commodity first appear? Is the depression getting you down?
