Call for Papers: 'Consuming Gender'

Assuming Gender
contact email: 

This special issue of Assuming Gender – an online, peer-reviewed academic journal from Cardiff University – seeks to explore the way gender is both presented and consumed through popular media and advertising. As Ann Herrmann points out in the article 'Shopping for Identities', commodities 'are characterised by their dual nature: material composition and symbolic meaning' (Herrmann 2002: 539). Consumer culture plays a significant role in constructing valid (and normative) identity categories with which consumers are encouraged to identify.

Seeking submissions that takes risks

The Sunflower Collective

The Sunflower Collective is now open for submissions. We celebrate the personal and the political - which we believe to be one and the same thing - in art.

We would like to mention at the outset that we are not interested in art that does not take risks. We do not mind if you have a degree but we are unlikely to be impressed by it. Nor do we care which journals have published your work before. All we are interested in is something that sings for itself without any props, something that grabs us by our throat and refuses to let go, something that shakes us out of our complacent stupor. Give us something hungry, not bellyful; something beat, if you get our drift.
