Beyond First Lady: The Political and Social Discourse of Hillary Rodham Clinton and the 2016 Election (10/6/14)
full name / name of organization:
Michele Lockhart & Kathleen Mollick
Michele Lockhart and Kathleen Mollick seek contributors for their third collection of essays considering political women and leadership. Having published two edited collections, Political Women: Language and Leadership (2013) and Global Women Leaders: Studies in Feminist Political Rhetoric (September, 2014), they are seeking to shift their focus from American and global political women and their choices of political language to focus on one U.S. political woman whose career has led to many titles, including wife of a governor, First Lady of the United States, Senator of New York, U.S. Presidential candidate, U.S. Secretary of State, and most recently, a potential candidate for President of the United States in 2016.
Their book is entitled, Beyond First Lady: The Political and Social Discourse of Hillary Rodham Clinton and the 2016 Election. The collection of essays will demonstrate the ways in which Clinton has used political rhetoric and political discourse to provide leadership, or assert her right to leadership; essays will also be considered that look to various audience reactions, which may include the media and international audiences, for example.
Complete essays of approximately 20-25 double-spaced pages or proposals of approximately 350 words must be submitted by October 6, 2014, but acceptance into the collection will be based on completed essays submitted by January 5, 2015. Include contact information and academic affiliation, if any. Please title the e-mail subject line of the proposal “Clinton Collection” when e-mailing the attachment.
CFP Released: August 13, 2014
