The Projector: A Journal on Film, Media, and Culture is developing a special (potentially double) issue on women’s labor in film, television, gaming, and other media forms. We are interested in research that contributes to the growing body of work on women’s creative labor in the various aspects of film, television, and (new) media production, distribution, and exhibition.

The special issue aims to feature research in production studies that sheds light on the gendered dimensions of labor in screen industries, and on women’s ongoing and shifting contributions to film, television, and media practice above and/or below the line.

We are interested in research that illuminates women’s participation in film/media industries in different time periods, production venues, and delivery-system formats, as well as research that illuminates women’s labor in relation to cultural context, genre (status), or intersections between gender, race, sexuality, region, and so on.

Research articles should be 20-25 pages and follow MLA guidelines for formatting and citation. The deadline for submission is December 15, 2014. Submissions should be emailed to cbaron@bgsu.edu as Word or Open Office files.

The Projector is an open access, peer reviewed journal that is published twice annually. For more information, please visit our journal at https://sites.google.com/site/projectorjournal/
