Call for Papers: Consuming/Culture: Women and Girls in Print and Pixels
June 5/6, 2015
Oxford Brookes University

This conference follows on from those held at Kingston (2012) and Cornell (2013), themed around women and magazines, and will be held at Oxford Brookes University on 5 and 6 June 2015.  We have selected a theme that will allow for a wide range of papers and we encourage submissions from scholars at all stages of their careers. We especially welcome proposals that incorporate the following themes: food, advertising, digital platforms/presentations, celebrities, sport, marketing, memoirs, fashion, internationalisation, and all forms of identity/representational politics.  The organisers encourage collaborative efforts, in both individual paper and panel submissions.

Submit abstracts of no more than 250 words to consuming.culture.conference@gmail.com by 1 October 2014.

This conference will also incorporate a poster session that will allow participants to feature visual aspects of magazines.  Queries about this mode of presentation and abstract of 150-250 words can be directed to consuming.culture.conference@gmail.com by 1 October 2014.

The conference is jointly sponsored by Oxford Brookes University (UK), Arcadia University (US), and the University of East Anglia (UK).  For additional information and updates, please go to openbrookes.net/consumingculture/.
