Call for Papers: Consuming/Culture: Women and Girls in Print and Pixels

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
