Call for Images, Contexts:Understanding People in their Social Worlds V6, N4..
Call for Papers Date:
Contexts is the American Sociological Association magazine through which researchers share their research with academic and a public audiences. We are seeking images specifically for articles in the fourth Issue of Volume 6. Images can be original or archival photographs, or other graphic material such as art work, maps, diagrams, etc. We need images that capture attention and enhance the understanding of each article listed below.
For the feature article by Pamela Stone, “The Rhetoric and Reality of “Opting Out” about professional women who “choose” to leave the workforce but who may have fewer options than it seems. We seek images which challenge the myth of “choice” and reveal how high-achieving women internalized the double bind of intensive mothering and ideal worker models on which it rests.
For an article by Robert C. Bulman, “Can a “Living Legend” be Inauthentic?,” about the designation by the US Library of Congress of Ralph Stanley as a “living legend” in 2000. We seek images that convey the real and imagined essence of bluegrass and country music such as performances in various venues, and historical/archival images .
For an article by Frank Dobbin, Alexandra Kalev, and Erin Kelly, “Diversity Management in Corporate America” we seek images that address the question of whether America’s diversity-management programs work and perhaps where responsibility lies. For example; group photos, training programs, and gender or ethnically sensitive advertising.
For an article by Robert J. Brym, “The Six Lessons of Suicide Bombers,” about their motivations, the rationales of supporting organizations, their modus operandi, the precipitants of suicide attacks, and the effects of counterterrorism on insurgent behavior. We seek images that focus mainly on the Israeli/Palestinian case about these issues and the carnage wrought by suicide bombers.
For an article by Ronald Weitzer, “Prostitution: Fact and Fiction,” about how prostitution is sometimes romanticized in popular culture, but more often portrayed as intrinsically oppressive and harmful. We seek images which illustrate these deep-rooted myths which strongly influence public policy, including historical/archival work.
