Feminist Media Studies is a major new peer-reviewed journal to be launched in March 2001. The journal will provide an international forum for leading scholarship in the intellectually vigorous, burgeoning and indispensable area of feminist studies in media and communication. A Forum for Transdisciplinary International Scholarship Feminist Media Studies will provide a transdisciplinary, transnational forum for researchers pursuing feminist approaches to the field of media and communication studies, with attention to the historical, philosophical, cultural, social, political, and economic dimensions and analysis of sites including print and electronic media, film and the arts, and new media technologies. The journal invites contributions from feminist researchers working across a range of disciplines and conceptual perspectives. Feminist Media Studies will offer a unique intellectual space bringing together scholars and professionals from around the world to engage with feminist issues and debates in media and communication. Its editorial board and contributors reflect a commitment to the facilitation of international dialogue among researchers, through attention to local, national and global contexts for critical and empirical feminist media inquiry. A Forum for Diverse Perspectives Feminist Media Studies will promote recognition that feminist studies of the media represent an open, dynamic and contested field of inquiry, thus allowing the definitions and differences among theories, levels of analysis, modes of inquiry, and practices to emerge through scholarly dialogue. The journal will represent a wealth of positions and experiences of feminist researchers who are diverse in origin and interests as regards nation, race, ethnicity, class, and sexual identities, so that these multiple perspectives may enrich analysis of the media. Feminist Media Studies will also seek to encourage and develop international dialogue between existing womenís groups and networks in the leading scholarly, professional and grassroots organizations in media, communication and journalism.
