Feminist Media Studies


Acquiring Editor: Dawn Durante
Series Editor: Carol Stabile

This series will bring together cutting-edge scholarship from a range of disciplinary perspectives in feminist media studies. By "feminist," this series understands gender as being constantly in relationship with other elements of identity, including race, class, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, and ability. The series will commission and encourage original monographs and anthologies within the broad and vibrant field of feminist media studies, in areas that include media history, media criticism, new media and technology, games, production studies, comic studies, feminist science fiction, and digital and visual culture. By defining media expansively and inclusively, this series will not focus on a single medium as many series have in the past, but will more effectively reflect the realities of a convergent media landscape.
