FLOWTV: CALL FOR PAPERS
Hockey Mom or Sarah Barracuda? Addressing the Media Coverage of Sarah Palin
In light of the overwhelming surge of discourse following John
McCain's selection of Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin as his
vice-presidential running mate, the editors of FlowTV invite
submissions dealing with the media treatment, reaction, and handling
of Gov. Palin as a politician, a woman, a "Hockey Mom," a wife, an
Alaskan, and a Conservative. We hope the following quotes serve as a
jumping off point - what we view as some of the most poignant
examples of the recent media treatment - but we encourage submissions
to look to viral video, spoofs, celebrations, editorials, Facebook
status updates, blog entries, and myriad other sources of coverage.
Submissions should be between 1000-1500 words. Because of the
topicality of the particular subject, we welcome submissions as soon
as possible, and no later thanSeptember 30th. While we seek neither
diary entries nor diatribes, submissions need not be overly formal or
academic, and we encourage the incorporation of images and video.
Additionally, we encourage alternative perspectives from students,
non-Americans, bloggers, etc.
Please send submissions and inquiries to Anne Petersen
