Call for Papers: Multicultural Studies in American Television

Scholarly literature on television increasingly centers on the
intersections of race, class, gender, and sexual orientation.
Nevertheless, no currently available anthology intended for use in
university and college classrooms concentrates exclusively on such

We are gathering articles for a proposed collection of intercultural
analyses of American television.  We wish to compile articles that
explore a range of televisual images and genres and examine historical
and contemporary issues.  Essays will include theoretical inquiries,
formal analyses, audience studies, and critical pieces.  We are
especially interested in new, unpublished manuscripts, but will also
consider previously published material.

The anthology will be of interest to researchers, college and university
instructors, and undergraduate and graduate students.

Possible subject areas include, but are not limited to:

Tabloid Television and the Vocabulary of Exclusion, Television and Youth
Culture, Polyglot Television, The Economics of Television in the
Classroom, American Television in the Global Market, Identifying New TV
Audiences, Race and racism in Prime-time, Queering the TV Color Line,
Television for Mature Audiences, Class Conflict in Prime-time

Submissions should consist of an abstract, a 15- to 30-page manuscript,
and a brief c.v., and should preferably follow Chicago Style format and
citation guidelines.
