CFP: 2012 AHA panel on gendered imagery and language in war coverage or propaganda

"I am looking to assemble a panel that explores gendered imagery and language in media coverage of wars and/or war propaganda. My own research compares the ways in which the U.S. press used images of atrocities committed against women and children by the enemies the United States fought in the Spanish-American War, World War I, and the current war in Afghanistan as a means to vilify those enemies and offer justification for U.S. military intervention. I would like to focus on wars that the United States has fought since 1898, but I am open to shaping this panel in other ways based on responses."
Submission deadline for proposals: February 15, 2011.
