Mitch and Cam’s gay wedding in the fifth season finale of Modern Family represents an important milestone in media representations of same-sex marriage. Accordingly, this collection of essays seeks to explore a range of representations (whether positive or negative in nature) pertaining to the topic of same-sex marriage in film and television.
Contributions may explore a single film or television offering or several. Any form (comedy, drama, documentary, news, etc.), year of release, and/or country of release is fair game for analysis. Contributors are encouraged to interpret and explore this topic broadly and innovatively.
If interested in contributing to this planned collection, please submit a 300- to 500-word abstract (including working title) of your proposed essay as well as a copy of your CV to Dr. Kylo-Patrick R. Hart (firstname.lastname@example.org) by July 1, 2014. If accepted for inclusion, completed essays (containing approximately 5,000 words) will be due by October 1, 2014. For specific inquiries prior to submitting an abstract, please contact Dr. Hart at your convenience by e-mail (email@example.com).
