Call for Proposals - Original Edited Volume in Gender Studies

Contact Info: 

I am seeking chapter proposals for an edited reader in social studies of gender marketed to upper-division students (under contract with Cognella Academic Publishing).

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). 

Papers needed in the following areas:

Economic inequality and wage gaps

Gendered cultures in the workforce

Media representations of gender and sexuality

Sexual violence

Gender and religion

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.
