      AREA CALL FOR PAPERS: Mexico Meeting of the Popular Culture Association
      in conjunction with the 4th Annual Congress, UDLA
      September 29 =96 October 3, 1999.

      Searching for papers that relate to: GENDER AND TELEVISION

      Television occupies a key position in popular culture studies, as a dis-
      cursive site around which the meanings of the 'masculine' and 'feminine'
      are both contested and transformed. This panel calls for a necessarily
      broad range of papers, using both historical and contemporary examples,
      which attempt to analyse the relation of gender to television in terms of
      the concrete practices of production, signification, 'reading', and
      interpretation.

      Papers could attend to, or cut across, any of the issues listed below:

      - ways in which gender is constructed in televisual representations.
      - the impact of gender on cultural perceptions of televisual
      representations.
      - the relationship between gender and genre.
      - the presence, or absence, of gendered spaces within televisual
      programming.
      - gender and television advertising.
      - production, gender, and the television industry.
      - the 'gendered audience'.
      - television and the gendering of technology.
      - television, gender and the domestic sphere.
      - consumption, gender and television.
      - television and the construction of gendered 'subjects'.
      - television and gendered cultural competence.
