Media and Misogyny: CALL FOR CHAPTERS

Media stories have proliferated and have been amplified by social media in the United States in the case of the Ford-Kavanaugh allegations and the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Trumpism and the sexual harassment allegations against incumbent President Donald J.

This call for chapters to be included in a proposed book on Media and Misogyny is to examine misogyny and to capture media representations of misogyny. The deadline for chapters will be June 30, 2019. See complete call.

Special Issue Paper Call – Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media
Digital Media & Politics: Effects of The Great Information and Communication Divides
Public discourse about socio-cultural, economic and political issues has catalyzed a drastic shift in tone and tactics since the 2016 presidential election campaign cycle. Through the constant output of news and information presented by cable news networks, broadcast networks, social media and the Internet, an unprecedented array of tailored communication strategies have emerged to target and influence the diverse constituents and voters across different socio-economic, ethnic and racial subgroups. In this early stage of the Web 3.0 environment, disrupted technologies – such as big data analytics and social bots – have the capacity to energize public opinion and exacerbate on-going information and communication divides in society. All manuscripts should be received by December 1, 2018. See complete call.
