Presentation of the Journal
Gender in series: cinema, television and the media is an online Scientific Journal based on both an international scientific committee and a double-blind peer review policy. It is sustained by the French Maison des Sciences de l'Homme d'Aquitaine and it focuses on gender in media cultures. Gender Studies were born in the UK in the 1950s and 1960s. They developed extensively in the USA and the English-speaking world. They contributed to the renewal of approaches and corpuses. The Journal Gender in series: cinema, television and the media can be considered as a pioneer in the French context as it articulates Gender and Media Studies. The Journal's goals can be encapsulated into two key points. First, it contributes to the late appropriation by the French Media and Film Studies' fields of theories and methods. Secondly, the increasing importance of the media in social life, as a specific resource for the making of identities and gender relationships, entails us to analyze collectively the power relationships, social structures and norms at work in media cultures.
Issues are released on a semi-annual basis. They provide articles to a large academic public (students, teachers and researchers), hence facilitating the spreading and teaching of these approaches in the French-speaking world.
