2017 Calls for Papers

The Commission on the Status of Women invites welcomes papers in which gender is a main analytic focus and invite projects that use a variety of approaches and research methods, including but not limited to critical, empirical, ethnographic, historical, legal and semiotic analyses. It is expected that the research will   demonstrate a familiarity with feminist communication theory. Examples of relevant topics include: representations of women in the news; the role of gender in news- rooms or classrooms; effects of mass media on women and girls; feminist approaches to teaching and communication; women’s use of/production of media; gender equality in the profession or the academy; how gender influences or matters in health, risk, and crisis public relations campaigns, etc.

Suggested paper length is 25-pages (double-spaced, 12-point type), excluding tables, references, figures or illustrations. We especially encourage submissions by graduate students. The winner of the top student paper will be awarded $100, and the winner of the second place student paper will receive $50. Authors of the top papers will be recognized in the conference program and at the CSW business meeting  at  the conference.
