VCG call for papers by Sept 15 for volume 6, 2011 publication
Visual Culture & Gender (VCG) is an international, freely accessed, online journal available @ http://www.emitto.net/visualculturegender. The journal’s purpose is to encourage and promote an understanding of how visual culture constructs gender in context with representations of race, age, sexuality, social units, (dis)ability, and social class; and to promote international dialogue about visual culture and gender. VCG is also concerned with the learning and teaching processes and/or practices used to expose culturally learned meanings and power relations that surround the creation, consumption, valuing, and dissemination of images, and involves issues of equity and social justice in the learning, teaching, and practice of art.
Submission of Manuscripts: September 15 is the deadline for submission of articles, images, and reviews of books, video/films, performance/actions, Web sites, visual culture, and exhibitions for an annual publication each autumn since 2006. VCG will consider for publication manuscripts that address gender issues in the context of visual culture and arts education. To be considered, manuscripts should be no more than 5000 words in length with an abstract of 150 words. Images are encouraged with manuscripts and should be sent in digital format (jpg, gif, or png) with copyright permission provided. Visual research is encouraged but images must be accompanied by text. Original manuscripts should be prepared according to the APA (6th edition) style. Include in a cover letter that the manuscript is original, not previously published, and not under consideration elsewhere. Please place your name only in the accompanying cover letter and not in the manuscript to facilitate anonymous review. Send the manuscript electronically as an email attachment with .doc or .docx extension and your name to Karen Keifer-Boyd and Deborah Smith-Shank.
