Conference Description


Misogyny, toxic masculinity, and heteronormativity in post-2000 popular music.

Tuesday, June 26, 2018 - 11:22am
University of Winchester
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 31, 2018

Popular music has been a well-studied area during the 20th century, but this focus waned during the early part of the 21st Century, moving instead to music on the fringes. With recent academic and press interest in gender and sexuality in contemporary popular music, we aim to bring together a collection of works related to the notions of misogyny, toxic masculinity and heteronormativity in post-2000 popular music. Specifically, the purposes of this book are to:


-          Address the themes of heteronormativity and gender stereotyping

-          Explore misogyny,  female exploitation, and the sexualisation of female artists

-          Discuss the concept of toxic masculinity

FORUM Call for Papers, Issue 27 (2018): The Gaze

Issue 27 of FORUM seeks contributions from a wide range of disciplines concerning the gaze, recognition, and identification. All aspects of culture and identity can be said to be subject to a form of the gaze - how does an art form interact with its audience? How does the presence of the gaze affect the ownership of a medium? How is the gaze redirected in subversive art? Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:


  • Visibility and readership of subjugated narratives

  • Digital humanities and contemporary audiences

  • The #metoo movement and the male gaze

Empowerings and Victim Shaming: #Me too and its ambivalent repercussions

Wednesday, June 20, 2018 - 9:32am
Gender Forum - An Internet Journal for Gender Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 15, 2018

“MeToo” was originally phrased/used as a slogan by Tarana Burke in 2006 to raise awareness against sexual violence against women. However, it wasn’t until October 15, 2017 that the slogan/phrase/hashtag became known globally. In the aftermath of the Weinstein affair Millano tweeted “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.“ In less than 24 hours tens of thousands of people replied to her tweet.
