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
firstname.lastname@example.org 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
email@example.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
