CFP Journal EPI - Sex, gender, sexuality, & communication


Profesional de la Información /seeks cutting-edge research studies,

theoretical essays, and state-of-the-art critical review articles for a

special issue dedicated to sex, gender, sexuality, and communication to

be published in Volume 30, Issue 5 (September-October 2021) to be

published in the journal. Articles with a pedagogical focus, especially

those that elucidate specific concepts, technologies, or processes, will

also be considered. This special issue will celebrate methodological and

theoretical plurality, with the primary goal being to publish an

excellent collection of research and theory that advances thinking about

sex, genders, sexualities, and communication.


To that end, the editor will accept manuscripts featuring research using

quantitative and/or qualitative social scientific methods;

critique-oriented methods such as rhetorical, cultural, or media

criticism; and scholarship that is highly creative, especially as it

advances theory.


Manuscripts submitted for consideration must clearly advance

communicative aspects of one of the following special issue areas:

/Sex/: Research or theorizing that examines sexual communication,

ranging from sexual activity to talk about sex to sexual technologies to

sex-oriented media studies.

/Genders/: Research or theorizing that examines social and/or cultural

notions of identities as they relate to social expectations,

performances, transgressions, and/or articulations of masculine and

feminine identity. Work that moves beyond masculine/feminine identity is

especially welcome, including work that examines transgender and/or

gender non-conforming identities.


/Sexualities/: Research or theorizing related to sexual performance,

capacities, and feelings. For this special issue, work focused on

identity is especially welcomed – including work that adopts

intersectional theorizing about sexualities.


Those submitting to the special issue should follow the directions for

submission found on the journal website

http://www.elprofesionaldelainformacion.com/authors.html

Works will be accepted in both English and Spanish.

Those who are interested in submitting are welcome to contact the guest
