We are inviting submissions for a special issue of Feminist Media Studies on Women, HIV, Globalization, and Media. This project extends the important contribution of feminist media scholars to critical perspectives on the AIDS pandemic by bringing together work concerned with the structures, inequalities, and geographies of globalization. We are seeking contributions using a range of theoretical, topical, and methodological approaches and working from a variety of perspectives on local-global relationships.
Subjects in which we are interested include, but are not limited to:
--Different forms of media and their implication in a variety of institutional and/or community settings
--The relationship between women and gender as analytic categories
--The relationship between media, activism, and public policy
--Feminist methodological and analytic frames
--Comparative approaches examining different national, regional, and/or cultural contexts
--Perspectives on migration, transnationalism, globalization, or other models for examining women, HIV, and media within and across national borders
--New technologies and issues of accessibility
--NGOs, governments, international health organizations, or other organizations concerned with AIDS policy
--Issues of production, distribution, and reception

Feminist Media Studies is a major peer-reviewed journal, published by Routledge and edited by Lisa McLaughlin (Miami University-Ohio) and Cynthia Carter (Cardiff University-Wales). The journal offers a transdisciplinary, transnational forum for researchers pursuing feminist approaches to the field of media and communication studies, with attention to the historical, philosophical, cultural, social, political, and economic dimensions and analysis of sites including print and electronic media, film and the arts, and new media technologies. Feminist Media Studies brings together scholars and professionals from around the world to engage with feminist issues and debates in media and communication. Its editorial board and contributors reflect a commitment to the facilitation of international dialogue among researchers, through attention to local, national and global contexts for critical and empirical feminist media inquiry.
