Lynda L. Hinkle

MP International Feminist Journal invites you to contribute to a special
themed issue on "Popular Culture". The machinations of culture take many
forms, and while the Academy has not opened up its arms to completely accept
popular culture, it is beginning to see that the study of popular culture
contributes toward an interdisciplinary understanding of our world, our
social interactions and our future as an international community. Papers on
any aspect of popular culture as they apply to feminism and feminist
discourse are welcomed: television, popular literature, music, film,
"reality" television, street culture, fashion, pop psychology (self help)
