The Fandom and Neomedia Studies (FANS) Association has announced a call for editors in its upcoming Gender Studies Area. The purpose of this area is to examine the definition, acceptance, rejection, and expression of gender and sexuality in fandom and media. Among the topics to be included in this area include fandom onomastics.
Anyone, committee members and non-members alike, may submit a paper for consideration for our annual journal, The Phoenix Papers, and presentation at our conference, but committee members must meet certain qualifications.
Members must have an advanced degree or equivalent experience in gender studies and/or relevant fields within philosophy, literary studies, film studies, psychology, sociology, anthropology, social work, or medicine. Persons from all nations are eligible to join the committee.
