Working at Intersections: Women’s and Gender Studies in Review Across Disciplines
Brownbag discussion with: Vivian Shaw, Maggie Tate, Amy Lodge and Michelle Mott
Intersections: Women’s and Gender Studies in Review Across Disciplines www.intersectionsjournal.com is a University of Texas graduate student operated journal that has been in publication since 2002. While initially founded through the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies and the Department of English, for the last several years, the staff and contributor roster has included a number of students from the Department of Sociology.
In this Brownbag, four current journal staff members from the Department of Sociology students will be discussing the Fall 2011 Issue, "Gender and Social Justice," and the current Call for Papers for the Fall 2012 Issue, "Media(ting) Genders and Sexualities: Identity, Representation, and Politics in Media." In addition, they will be discussing the process of transitioning from a print journal to an entirely digital journal, which is currently underway for Intersections.
Maggie, Amy, Vivian, and Michelle would also like to invite questions and discussion from attendees on any of the above topics and/or anything pertaining to the process for submission, review, etc. that individuals may have.
