Argument

The Gender and Communication Section invites submissions for its open session at next year’s IAMCR, held in Montreal, Canada, from 12-16 July 2015. The section seeks research that balances theory and practice, and explores the relationship between gender, media and communication. In recent years sessions have included papers on the Internet, television, film, journalism, magazines, violence, queer theory, media production, reception, advertising, representation, the Global Media Monitoring Project, human rights, discrimination, elections, the body, HIV/AIDS, development, pop culture, virtual identity, social change, and consumption. In keeping with our philosophy of inclusivity, we welcome contributions without regard to empirical, theoretical, disciplinary or philosophical perspectives. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 9 February 2015.

Although we welcome submissions on any topic involving gender, media and communication, we encourage and will give special consideration to papers and panel proposals that examine connections to the conference theme: Hegemony or Resistance? The Ambiguous Power of Communication. A list of possible topics has been suggested by conference organizers and can be found in the general call on the IAMCR website at http://iamcr.org/congress/montreal2015-cfp.

Submission guidelines

We encourage the submission of individual papers and complete panel proposals in any of the three official association languages (English, French, Spanish). However, English or Spanish are preferred to facilitate the international peer review process.

Panel Proposals

A complete panel proposal will include:

  1. The panel description, including, the panel title, a framing text, the names of the panellists and the titles of their papers. The framing text (maximum 350 words) should contain the overall idea and goal of the panel. A panel chair and a discussant should also be proposed.
  2. An abstract for each paper, including title and author(s).

The panel description and the individual abstracts must be submitted individually. Thus, a panel with 4 papers involves making 5 separate submissions via the Open Conference System. Abstracts can be submitted directly by the panel authors or the panel coordinator can submit them on the authors' behalf.

Abstract submissions must indicate “PANEL:” as the first word of their title and the complete title of the panel must appear in the first line of the abstract.

Individual papers

It is expected that for the most part, only 1 abstract will be submitted per person for consideration by the Conference. However, under no circumstances should there be more than 2 abstracts bearing the name of the same applicant either individually or as part of any group of authors. Please note also that the same abstract or another version with minor variations in title or content must not be submitted to other Sections or Working Groups of the Association for consideration, after an initial submission. Such submissions will be deemed to be in breach of the conference guidelines and will be automatically rejected by the Open Conference System, by the relevant Head or by the Conference Programme Reviewer. Such applicants risk being removed entirely from the conference programme.

Presenters are expected to bring fully developed work to the conference. Prior to the conference, it is expected that a completed paper will be submitted to Section, Working Group, Session Chairs, and/or Discussants.

Upon submission of an abstract, you will be asked to confirm that your submission is original and that it has not been previously published in the form presented. You will also be given an opportunity to declare if your submission is currently before another conference for consideration.

Abstracts should be between 250 and 500 words, and should:

  • Have a clear title
  • Include the name(s) of author(s) and professional title(s) (i.e. professor, postdoctoral fellow, independent researcher, graduate student, student, etc.)
  • Outline the research objectives/questions/hypothesis
  • Outline the theoretical framework and methodology if relevant
  • Make clear the main argument proposed

Bibliographies and author profiles are not required.

The Gender and Communication section encourages its members to take part in their moderation and chairing sessions so please let us know if you are interested. Furthermore, we are looking for volunteers to take part in the blind peer review system. If interested, please contact the chairs, Kaitlynn Mendes (km350[at]leicester.ac.uk) or Margaretha Geertsema-Sligh (mgeertse[at]butler.edu).

Success in organizing the conference relies on the assistance from our members.

Individual papers and panels are possible, but all proposals must be submitted through the online Open Conference System at http://iamcr-ocs.org 

from 1 December 2014 – 9 February 2015.

Early submission is strongly encouraged. There are to be no email submissions of abstracts addressed to any Section or Working Group Head

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 9 February 2015. Please note that this deadline will not be extended. The OCS system at will open on 1 December 2014, and will close on 9 February 2014.
