Call for Papers:

Feminist Resistance

Feminists, feminist activism, and feminist theories created inroads into contemporary pop culture as revealed through an even cursory analysis of politics, social activism, news reporting, athletics, subreddit discussion forums, and comics. Current interdisciplinary scholarship about gender and popular culture emerged from the necessary early historical critiques of misogynistic representations, developing into nuanced analyses of feminism’s transformation by popular culture and, in turn, popular culture’s transformation by feminism. This reciprocity manifests itself in global feminist podcasts, websites, publication, conferences, academic journals, and university courses. The question that this special issue intends to investigate is in what ways popular culture has become a vehicle for perpetuation, subversion, and disruption of gender messaging across ideological and geographic lines.

Feminist action figures, intersectional feminist music, rallies, clothing, DIY projects, superheroes, parades, protests, and hashtags exemplify what Andi Zeisler defined as “marketplace feminism” (2017). Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie made the case for why “we should all be feminists” in her analysis of global sexual politics (2015). Dan and Eugene Levy steer the plot of their Canadian hit comedy, Schitt’s Creek away from typical portrayals of gender based violence, pain, resilience that typically characterize queer characters. Sans the heartache, the Levys disrupted dominant narratives. Roxane Gay’s “bad feminist” and critiques of racism within feminism examined privilege and liminal spaces. Hashtag activism utilized popular culture as a vehicle to promote the work that Tamara Burke began in 2008 long before the Hollywood superstars created what we recognize today at #MeToo and #TimesUp.

This special issue aims to bring together scholars from diverse geopolitical spaces to engage collectively in transnational, interdisciplinary dialogue about representations of feminist resistance within popular culture. We welcome essays that consider political, social, and cultural representations of feminist resistance and resistance to feminism through popular culture with clear argument framing the analysis of topics including but not limited to:

Consumers as producers of feminist resistance

Popular narratives and queer discourse

Symbolic embodiment of feminist resistance in cultural narratives

Gender, sport, and resistance

Feminist social action within the music industry
