CALL FOR PAPERS
Gendering the Fair:
A Collection of Histories of Women and Gender at World’s Fairs
The editors of this anthology invite submissions from scholars whose work analyses the participation of women at world’s fairs (as organizers, performers, employees, fairgoers, etc.) or whose work offers gender analyses of world’s fairs. Research tracking the significance of fairs as gendered spaces or calling attention to the gendered nature of the experience of attending a world’s fair, as well as scholarship that explores eroticism and sexuality at world’s fairs or manliness/masculinity is strongly encouraged. Works that focus on world’s fairs held outside the U.S. are especially welcome, as are those that interrogate the nexus between gender, class, race, and national identity formation at world’s fairs held in the U. S. and abroad.
Send one e-copy to email@example.com , and two print copies of your manuscript (15-25 pages, doubled spaced), with end notes and complete references page formatted according to the Chicago Manual of Style to Associate Professor TJ Boisseau, 115 Salt Marsh Cove, Edgecomb, ME 04556.
