CFP: Documenting gendered violence

Book: Documenting gendered violence: representations, collaborations, and movements
Editors: Lisa Cuklanz and Heather McIntosh
Submission deadline for proposals: May 15, 2011

Description: »We seek completed chapters and chapter proposals that address the intersections of gendered violence and documentary. Gendered violence includes specific subjects such as interpersonal violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, sex trafficking, forced sterilization, forced prostitution, genital mutilation, child marriage, kidnapping, child abuse, elder abuse, and murder. Gendered violence affects various people and organizations, including survivors, perpetrators, children and families, social services, advocacy groups, government organizations, and the judicial system, among others. Documentary refers to non-fiction texts produced by the mainstream media, independent media organizations, independent producers, interest groups, government groups, educational organizations, and others. Most frequently, these texts are videos and films, but documentary also refers to photography and other multi-media projects.«
