Call for Book Chapters and Book Chapter Proposals
Working Title: Documenting Gendered Violence: Representations, Collaborations, and Movements
Heather McIntosh, Ph.D.
We seek completed chapters and chapter proposals that address the intersections of gendered violence and documentary. Gendered violence includes specific subjects such as interpersonal violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, sex trafficking, forced sterilization, forced prostitution, genital mutilation, child marriage, kidnapping, child abuse, elder abuse, and murder. Gendered violence affects various people and organizations, including survivors, perpetrators, children and families, social services, advocacy groups, government organizations, and the judicial system, among others. Documentary refers to non-fiction texts produced by the mainstream media, independent media organizations, independent producers, interest groups, government groups, educational organizations, and others. Most frequently, these texts are videos and films, but documentary also refers to photography and other multi-media projects.
Some possible topics for this volume include -- but are not limited to -- the following:
-- Representations of gendered violence and the people it affects within documentary
We seek submissions from scholars working on gendered violence issues from across disciplines. Chapters may use any methodology. Submissions from scholars at all career levels are welcome.
The intended audience for this volume includes students and faculty within multiple disciplines, including communication, film and media studies, women’s studies, sociology, psychology, and other related fields. In addition, this volume would be useful for those working within social and government groups and movements, including administrators, policy makers, and organizers.
While complete chapters are preferred, we also will consider proposals, which should run about 1,000 words and include a working bibliography and title. Also attach a current copy of your C.V. Chapter proposals are due May 15, 2011.
