Feminist Media Studies Commentary & Criticism CFP

Issue 17.6: Open Call


The editors of Feminist Media Studies’ Commentary & Criticism section are seeking brief essays (~1000 words) on any topic of relevance to the field of feminist media studies. The Commentary & Criticism section features timely responses to current issues in feminist media culture, for an international readership. Submissions may pose a provocation, describe work in progress, or propose areas for future study. We will also consider book and event reviews, as well as contributions that depart from traditional academic formats. We encourage all submissions to strategically mobilize critique to also offer a productive contribution to both feminist politics and media studies. Submissions must go beyond mere description in order to be considered for publication in Commentary and Criticism. As always, we are particularly interested in submissions from beyond North America and the UK.


Please submit contributions by 17 July 2017, via email to Susan Berridge ( and Laura Portwood-Stacer ( Questions and expressions of interest can also be addressed to Drs. Berridge and Portwood-Stacer in advance of the deadline.

Email submissions directly to the editors, as submissions for Commentary and Criticism will not be correctly processed if submitted through the main Feminist Media Studies site.
