CALL FOR BOOK PROPOSALS: New Histories of Women in the Entertainment Industry
New Histories of Women in the Entertainment Industry is a new series from Peter Lang Publishing focused on excavating, articulating, theorizing, and positioning new histories of women working ‘behind the screens’ in the entertainment industries from 1960 to the present.
We actively invite book proposals for monographs or edited collections—desired manuscript length of 250-300 pages—on women’s labor in the entertainment industries from 1960 on.
The series conceptualizes ‘entertainment industries’ broadly, and is inclusive of film, television, support industries, gaming, streaming platforms, digital content, etc. Similarly, although the series title singles out women and women-identified workers, projects that focus on trans and non-binary labor histories are very welcome.
Please be aware that the scope of the series does not include histories of laborers who work(ed) in front of the screen, nor does it include histories whose primarily chronology is pre-1960.
Please contact series editor, Dr. Alicia Kozma (akozma2(at)washcoll.edu) with questions and/or for proposal guidelines.
