Call for Submissions: Screen Bodies
Screen Bodies is a peer-reviewed journal focusing on the intersection of Screen Studies and Body Studies across disciplines, institutions, and media. It is a forum promoting research on various aspects of embodiment on and in front of screens through articles, reviews, and interviews. The journal considers moving and still images, whether from the entertainment industry, information technologies, or news and media outlets, including cinema, television, the internet, and gallery spaces. It investigates the private experiences of portable and personal devices and the institutional ones of medical and surveillance imaging. Screen Bodies addresses the portrayal, function, and reception of bodies on and in front of screens from the perspectives of gender and sexuality, feminism and masculinity, trans studies, queer theory, critical race theory, cyborg studies, and dis/ability studies.
The journal seeks submissions related to any of the areas and methodologies outlined above. In particular, we encourage scholars to submit work that focuses on matters of embodiment on screens outside of the arts and entertainment, such as those in medicine, surveillance, and computer vision.
Deadline: Oct. 15
