CFP: Women in Popular Culture: Of Social Justice, Sexual Politics and the Status quo

South Carolina State University, October 21-23, 2010.

"We are soliciting one- page abstracts that examine the degree to which contemporary popular culture serves as a site of containment or resistance for the agendas of women interested in promoting and advancing social justice and equality; concomitantly, this entails the ongoing critique and deconstruction of persistent ideologies, agendas, cultural vehicles, etc., which continue both implicitly and explicitly to base women's value (or lack of value) on their appearance or sex appeal."
Submission deadline for abstracts: July 15, 2010.
