Edited Collection. Public Affairs: The Politics of Sex Scandals
Call for Papers Deadline:
Professor Paul Apostolidis (Politics, Whitman College) and Professor Juliet Williams (Law & Society and Women's Studies, University of California at Santa Barbara) seek essays for their edited volume "Public Affairs: The Politics of Sex Scandals," to be published by Duke University Press. The collection confronts this central question: in what ways do sex scandals convey political meanings that help legitimate the American state and political culture? Most of the essays already in the collection focus on the Clinton scandal. Additional contributions are needed that would provide historical perspectives on these recent events - for example, by examining how journalists, political leaders, and the public responded to the sexual infidelities of Thomas Jefferson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, or John F. Kennedy. Please do not submit proposals for essays concentrating on the Clinton scandal.
Proposals should be 250-500 words; should include the author's title, institutional affiliation, and major publications; and should be submitted via email. Deadline: December 20, 2000.
