Journal of European Popular Culture 6.1 (late 2014)
Call for Papers on Gender and Sexuality in European Popular Culture

 The field of gender and sexuality studies in European popular culture is, unsurprisingly, vast, yet research is often focused on Anglophone culture, encompassing the UK and North America, rather than taking a more trans-European approach. In an increasingly globalised society we consider that there is a need for discussion of Anglophone and non-Anglophone European popular texts to be infiltrated into British academic work.

This special issue of the Journal of European Popular Culture, due to be published in late 2014, will provide a timely snapshot of the rigorous and exciting scholarship currently being undertaken in Europe which deals with the widely relevant and popular field of gender and sexuality.

We invite articles (max 6000 words) exploring any aspect of gender and sexuality in any form of European popular culture, including but not limited to:

  • Queerness in popular culture
  • Transgenderism in popular culture
  • Sexualisation in popular culture
  • The body in popular culture 
  • Historical approaches to popular gender and sexuality
  • Masculinity in popular culture
  • European sex media 
  • Sex education in popular culture
  • Religious approaches to gender and sexuality
  • Gender, sexuality and race/ethnicity
  • Sexuality on the internet
  • Feminism in/and popular culture
  • Gender, sexuality and language
  • Gender, sexuality and power

Please send 100-200 word abstracts to genderandsex.jpec@gmail.com by 15 December. Ensure you include your full name and affiliation (if relevant), along with a brief (100-200 word) biography. Full chapters will be due by 1 March 2014.
