CFP: Race, Sexuality, & Television

"This issue of Spectator seeks papers that engage in current debates about race, sexuality, and television. This issue will examine the complex relationships between race and sexuality in a global, multi-channel, conglomerate TV environment. The issue seeks to incorporate papers that address industrial analysis, textual analysis, and cultural studies, including theoretical investigations of racialization, sexuality, and television. Submissions should interrogate how images of or issues concerning race, sexuality, and television are constructed, represented, and received in various contexts of contemporary culture, with particular attention to the ways in which race and sexuality are co-constituted. Academic essays, interviews, and book reviews that explore how television programming, production, audiences, and discourse shape, constrain, and open up these identity formations are all welcome."
Submission deadline: November 22, 2010.
