: Call for Submissions Nº 7 Gender and the Media

We welcome studies on films, documentaries, performances, plays, videoclips, artistic interventions, photography, sitcoms, etc, but also genres such as visual poetry, graphic novels and comics. Visual Art that uses technology as a means of activism is especially encouraged.

  • Multiple feminist representations of India;
  • The battle with censorship;
  • Fair representation in the visual art business;
  • Challenging conservative sexual mores;
  • Introducing experimentation in an industry dominated by men and often formulaic fare;
  • South Asian women filmmakers in the art house, regional cinema, from within mainstream Bollywood and globally;
