Associate Professor, Mass Communication & Program in Women's, Gender,

"Reflections and Advice from the Editor of Feminist Media Studies"

Date: This Friday, December 10
Time: 10-11.30am 
Venue: The Refectory, Quadrangle Building A14, The University of Sydney

Dr. McLaughlin will discuss - and attempt to demystify for some - the
process of editing a journal, with an emphasis on the expectations that
journal editors have of authors and their submissions as well as the
responsibilities of reviewers. The talk is expected to be interactive,
with audience members welcomed to offer reflections and ask questions
regarding their own experiences with journal article publishing. As
well, Dr. McLaughlin welcomes queries from those who have not published
or who wish to have advice on work-in-progress. She also addresses some
of the experiences that characterize the process of editing a journal
with both 'feminist' and 'media studies' in its title. 

Lisa McLaughlin, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor with a joint
appointment in Media Studies and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
at Miami University-Ohio, USA. She teaches courses in feminist media
theory and practice and global media. McLaughlin has several
publications focusing on gender and the public sphere, transnational

continuing editor of the Routledge/Taylor and Francis journal Feminist
Media Studies for 10 years. She is the author of three forthcoming
