Encyclopedia of Sexism in American Cinema

This volume takes up the topic of sexism within American Cinema from its early days of film production to the present. Covering over 400 entries that include films, producers, directors, actresses, actors, genres, as well as conceptual and critical interpretations, the breadth and depth of this volume will generate some highly significant material for both academics and general audiences alike. The first of its kind—indeed there are no other encyclopedias that cover this topic anywhere on the market—The Encyclopedia of Sexism in American Cinema is a timely companion to the ever-growing field of critical film studies.

As we anticipate completing this project and submitting it for publication in 2018, we will be encouraging relatively quick turn-arounds. In this way, the first deadline for contributor submissions will be 1 December 2017.

If you are interested in contributing, please send an email with the subject line “Sexism in Cinema,” and we will forward the list of entries to you for your perusal. Please note that our list of entries is not a comprehensive list and we will certainly be open to further suggestions. Entries will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.

In addition to your email of interest, we are asking that you provide a brief curriculum vitae or summary of your educational background and/or writing experience. As we would like to cast the net wide in attracting authors from a variety of disciplines and professions, advanced graduate students and junior faculty are particularly welcome to contribute.
