Gender and Communication Section
The mission of the Gender and Communication Section is to foster and encourage any and all aspects of scholarship relating to the nexus of gender and communication. This Section aims to encourage the conduct and dissemination of research that uses gender as a primary thematic in work around media, culture and communication; to encourage and nurture younger scholars and those from developing countries interested in aspects of gender-media to participate in the academic community via attendance at conferences.
This Section's members are concerned to transcend the often artificial boundaries that give rise to divisions in the conduct of social science. They are committed to avoiding racial, ethnic, national, gender, ideological or philosophical descriptions. Because this Section is centrally concerned with how gender considerations and identities are reproduced and consumed through media production and consumption, members’ papers yield new insights into the way similarity and difference are experienced in the everyday lives of audiences.
