CFP: Lesbians and Bisexual Women on Television (1/15/06; anthology)

Friday, September 16, 2005 - 3:13pm
rebecca beirne

In recent years, several academic texts have been published on queer representation on television including Steven Capsuto's Alternate Channels, Larry Gross' Up From Invisibility and Stephen Tropiano's The Prime Time Closet. Many of these studies focus largely, or at times exclusively, on gay men, and almost all focus solely on American examples. With the ongoing expansion in terms of both the volume and quality of representation of lesbian and bisexual women on television, the time has now come for an academic anthology that focuses on the representation of queer women on television internationally.


Potential thematics could include but are not limited to an analysis of:
