I am seeking chapter proposals for an edited reader in social studies of gender marketed to upper-division students.

Proposals should include 1. a description of the topic of the chapter; 2. an outline of how the chapter will address the existing debates, pedagogical problems, and key concepts and standards of measurement of the topic; and 3. a comment on how the chapter would push or provoke conceptual constructs in the sociology of gender (e.g., two-sex system, inequality, cultural identities). 

Topics of interest (not limited to):


Medicalization of sex and binary sexual categories

Gendered sexual identities

Economic inequality and wage gaps

Gendered cultures in the workforce

Media representations of gender and sexuality

Sexual violence

Gender and religion

Transnational feminism

Inequalities across national and political contexts

After reviewing proposals, I will contact you to discuss the chapter requirements, the accepted and peer reviewed book proposal (already under contract with a U.S. academic press), and a chapter due date.
