Theresa Carilli and Jane Campbell are seeking book chapters for an edited collection that will examine intersectionality in the media. Intersectionality, or intersectionality perspectives, “share as a common thread the recognition of multiple interlocking identities that are defined in terms of relative sociocultural power and privilege and shape people’s individual and collective identities and experiences” (Shields, 2008). They are interested in global perspectives that demonstrate how specific communities who have intersecting identities have been represented in the media. This might include identities that cross gender and sexuality, ethnicity and religion, race and class, etc. The goal will be to examine how interlocking identities have affected media depictions. Please send inquiries to Theresa Carilli.
