CFP: Pregnancy and the Media; Feminist Media Studies

Call for submissions

> 19.5 PREGNANCY AND THE MEDIA
>
> The broad expansion of the post-feminist media landscape of the past couple of decades brought about an increased visibility of spectacularised and idealised ideas of pregnancy – a romanticised "new momism" (Douglas and Michaels, 2004). Alongside these romanticised discourses, though, exist numerous examples of mediated pregnancies that sit outside of such glamorised and perfect representations of pregnancy. This context has also opened up new networked spaces for people to seek and offer support online in relation to pregnancy, as well as spaces to search for or share (self-)representations of pregnancy. The editors of Commentary and Criticism invite short essays that critically consider pregnancy and contemporary media. Possible topics might include, but are not limited to:
>
> ·         Media representations of pregnancy
>
> ·         Pregnancy in the media industries
>
> ·         Online users and communities' uses of digital media related to pregnancy
>
> ·         Celebrity pregnancies
>
> ·         Mediated pregnancy in relation to diverse intersectionalities including: LGBTQ+, age, race, class, ability
>
> ·         Audiences' consumption of mediated pregnancy
>
> ·         Pregnancy in the context of health communication or health policy in the media
>
> ·         Onscreen pregnancy and genre
>
> ·         Neoliberalism, pregnancy and media
>
>
> The Commentary and Criticism section of Feminist Media Studies aims to publish brief (~1000 words), 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 mobilise 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.

>
> Please submit contributions by 26 April 2019, via email to both Melanie Kennedy (mjk29@le.ac.uk) and Safiya Noble (safiya.noble@usc.edu). We also welcome questions and expressions of interest in advance of the deadline.

> Submissions for Commentary and Criticism will not be correctly processed if submitted through via the Feminist Media Studies site, and should be emailed directly to Drs Kennedy and Noble using the email addresses above.

#CfP #Masculinity and #BodyImage in the 21st Century

Masculinity Sex and Popular Culture AHRC Network Launch

Masculinity and Body Image in the 21st Century
Birmingham City University
Friday 3rd May 2019

Call for Papers

Popular culture is saturated with images of men’s bodies that might once have been dismissed as homoerotic, pornographic or obscene.  Now commonplace, images of sexualized male bodies inform understandings of contemporary masculinities and can be felt in the ways men experience and describe their bodies and represent themselves on and off line.

This 24-month AHRC funded research network will explore the pervasiveness of sexualized masculine embodiment across contemporary popular culture, and set an ambitious agenda for subsequent research. The network steering group includes Begonya Enguix, Joao Florencio, Jamie Hakim, Mark McGlashan, Peter Rehberg and Florian Voros. Our first, free to attend event in Birmingham in May 2019 will set priorities for the network by addressing contemporary concerns about men’s physical and mental well-being within the context of a sexualised culture and will focus on male body image.

We invite individual papers, pre-constituted panels, poster presentations, video presentations or position papers on topics related to masculinity and body image in the 21st century from any field of study.

The network will engage with a range of questions including but not limited to:

How is the male body sexualized across a breadth of online and offline media?
What does sexualised masculinity mean for the social and cultural construction of masculinities?
What politics underpin sexualised masculinity?
What is the relationship between debates around health and well-being, and sexualised masculinity?
How do neoliberalism, precarity, class, race, nation and geographic region impact on manifestations of sexualised masculinity across Europe?

These questions matter for popular debate and media reportage, the work of health professionals, educators and policy makers and we are keen to involve practitioners and non-academics in our discussions and events.

Please send a 300-word abstract and short bio (max. 100 words) to Professor John Mercer john.mercer@bcu.ac.uk and Professor Clarissa Smith clarissa.smith@sunderland.ac.uk
Deadline for proposals 15th February 2019
Attendance will be free.

#CfP special Issue of of The Journal of #CriticalPsychology, #Counselling and #Psychotherapy #JCPCP to honour the many contributions of #TodSloan

Tod Sloan (1952-2018):

Special Issue of The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy

Call for contributions

A Special Issue of The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy Guest Edited by David Fryer (d.fryer@uq.edu.au) will be published in September 2019 with two objectives: first, to honour the many contributions to critique of Tod Sloan (1952-2018); second, to provide a forum where the work on the issues Tod Sloan championed can be continued and developed.

Tod Sloan championed work in so many areas it is impossible to specify them all in a call for papers but, as an indication, contributions which tackle any of the following – and related issues – with which Tod engaged, will be welcome: capitalist modernity; coloniality; crisis of the modern psyche; critical psychology; critical social theory; decolonisation; desymbolisation; globalisation; grassroots activism; hyper-individuation; ideology; intersubjective / ideological processes; Latin America (learning from and with); liberation praxis; obstacles to participation in social transformation; political and historical miseducation; poverty; progressive social movements; repressive de-sublimation; resistance; social change; social justice; social relations of domination and oppression; social responsibility; sustainability; work-related suffering.

Aims and Scope of The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy: "JCPCP is a peer-reviewed journal which values personal experience above professional boundaries and doctrinal jargon. It provides a forum for ideas, experiences and views of people working in the psychological world and those who use psychotherapy or receive psychiatric services. The journal encourages a critical, reflexive view of psychology and counselling and is a constant challenge to orthodoxy. Our contributors reflect on their work and experiences in therapy, in relationships and in institutions. The journal embraces philosophical, radical and scientific perspectives in its analysis of psychological, psychiatric and psychotherapeutic systems" (from inside the journal).

Guidelines to contributors for JCPCP: "When considering submitting a paper to The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy authors need to follow the following guidelines: Length (4000 words MAX including refs), summary (25 words MAX), brief sentence for author biog/biogs. Please check the references before submission and do not include complicated diagrams. The paper should be critical i.e., does it use a recognized perspective to critique PSY in its various guises and does it abjure medicalized descriptions of conduct e.g., ADHD, depression etc. If there is a suggestion for how to do things better, is that suggestion humane and does it avoid the pitfall of assuming that there is something wrong with people who are referred to services? Authors should avoid jargon (except when critiquing labels), sexist and racist terminology, and shouldn't cluster people (e.g. "the" elderly) when describing those who receive services. Submissions will be sent for review if these guidelines are followed. Authors should receive a response in less than six weeks"(taken from: https://www.pccs-books.co.uk/downloads/Guidelines_to_contributors_for_JCPCP_-_2016.pdf )

The deadline for contributions (for the September Special Issue) is July 1st 2019.

Please feel free to discuss potential contributions in advance with the Guest Editor, David Fryer (d.fryer@uq.edu.au) to whom submissions for review should be sent.

#CfP International #CriticalPsychology Praxis #Congress, 27-28 SEPTEMBER 2019, New Mexico College in Española

This is the real deal. Radical stuff. Call for papers now! Proposals are due by March 1, 2019. The 2019 International Critical Psychology Praxis Congress, a transdisciplinary event bringing together global scholars, activists, and practitioners who desire to imagine a worldcentric critical psychology from the perspective of the damnés, will be held at Northern New Mexico College in Española, NM on September 27-28, 2019. The theme of the Congress is psychosocial non-alignment to modernity/coloniality. Non-alignment is a reference to the Global South’s Non-Aligned Movement. The Global South is both a politico-economic and a geographical designation that refers to transmodern cultures in the continents of South America, Africa, and Asia. Furthermore, the Global South signifies ‘outsiders within’—that is, decolonial subcultures in the Global North. Papers must be written in the spirit of both praxis, which for Paulo Freire (1970/2018) means ‘reflection and action upon the world in order to transform it’ (p. 51), and what Angela Davis (2016) dubs ‘the intersectionality of struggles’ (p. 19, emphasis added). The goal of the Congress then is to bridge the North-South divide in critical psychology, a function of ethnocentrism, through solidarity and dialogue. To fulfill this goal, papers must explicitly address non-aligned theories, philosophies, histories, and/or practices from the Global South. Please email paper proposals as Word attachments, including title, 250-word abstract and brief bio to Robert K. Beshara (robert.beshara@nnmc.edu) using the following Email subject line: Submission for the 2019 ICPPC. Kindly indicate which of the 12 topic areas you are interested in. Also, state whether or not you would be interested in presenting a poster if your paper proposal is rejected. To propose a pre-constituted panel of three, please send the individual abstracts and other information in a single attachment. Notifications will be made on May 1, 2019. Early registration ($125): May 1 - June 30, 2019. Regular registration ($150): July 1 - August 31, 2019. Late registration ($175): September 1-28, 2019. The registration fee for non-NNMC attendees: $50. There is no fee for attendees from the NNMC community, but registration is still required. Any information related to the Congress will be posted to the Critical Praxis Cooperative website under 2019 ICPPC: www.criticalpsychology.org

Nr. 2 (2018): Jg. 26 (2018), Ausgabe 2: Disability Studies

Herausgegeben von Michael Zander und Günter Mey

Der Themenschwerpunkt greift Forschungsperspektiven auf Behinderung und  chronische Krankheit auf, wie sie seit etwa drei Jahrzehnten in den  Disability Studies verfolgt werden. Für die Disability Studies ist die  Unterscheidung von individueller Beeinträchtigung (impairment) und  gesellschaftlich ausgrenzender Behinderung (disability) zentral. 
Behinderung wird nicht durch die Beeinträchtigung, sondern als durch die
jeweiligen gesellschaftlichen Umstände verursacht verstanden. Aus diesem
Forschungsverständnis heraus legen die Disability Studies besonderen
Wert darauf, dass behinderte Menschen selbst forschen oder als Lai/innen
partizipativ an Forschung beteiligt werden. In dem Themenschwerpunkt
sind sieben Beiträge versammelt, um theoretische und methodo(olog)ische
Auseinandersetzungen sowie empirische Beiträge aus Psychologie und angrenzenden Disziplinen und Arbeitsfeldern vorzustellen und so jüngere 
Entwicklungen und die gegenwärtige Lage der Disablity Studies im deutschsprachigen Raum zu kartieren.

Die Print-Version dieser Ausgabe kann über den Psychosozial-Verlag bezogen werden. https://www.psychosozial-verlag.de/8248
