CFP: Social Theory and Intersectionality

Emerald Studies in Media and Communications is delighted to announce two new calls with a due date of  January 15, 2018:

Theorizing the Digital: Social Theory and Power, Media, and Everyday Life: Expanding the Intersectional. 

 

Call for Theorizing the Digital: Social Theory and Digital Culture

We welcome submissions using a wide variety of data and analytic techniques, assuming they are rigorously employed.  We also welcome theoretical submissions, assuming they focus squarely on the topic of the volume. Methodological papers will be considered as long as they are grounded in theoretical concerns. The scope of the volume is wide and includes application of classical and contemporary theorists in media contexts. Any topic that engages the volume’s theme is welcome. Potential topics could include: ethics, practices, and politics of “big data”; self, identity, and community; privacy, publicity and surveillance; personal and algorithmic patterns of curation; social network formation, maintenance, and change; news and (dis)information; visual representations; memes and virality; politics; mediated embodiment, etc. 

 

Call for Power, Media, and Everyday Life: Expanding the Intersectional

We welcome submissions using a wide variety of data and analytic techniques, assuming they are rigorously employed, and theoretical or methodological submissions, assuming they focus squarely on the topic of the volume. The scope of this volume is wide, as it aims to contribute phenomenological and epistemic knowledge to the growing field of intersectionality. Submissions are welcome on any topics that speak to intersectionality as it relates to media including gender, race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, and ability. In addition, we are also especially interested in papers that expand and broaden the discourse of intersectionality vis-à-vis media to include: Parenthood, Community, Religion, Nationality, Immigration, Language, Political Association, Aging, etc.
