Call for Papers

The editors, Feona Attwood (Middlesex University) and Clarissa Smith
(University of Sunderland), and Routledge are pleased to announce the
launch of a new journal devoted to the study of pornography.

Porn Studies is the first dedicated, international, peer-reviewed
journal to critically explore those cultural products and services
designated as pornographic and their cultural, economic, historical,
institutional, legal and social contexts. Porn Studies will publish
innovative work examining specifically sexual and explicit media
forms, their connections to wider media landscapes and their links to
the broader spheres of (sex) work across historical periods and
national contexts.

Porn Studies is an interdisciplinary journal informed by critical
sexuality studies and work exploring the intersection of sexuality,
gender, race, class, age and ability. It focuses on developing
knowledge of pornographies past and present, in all their variations
and around the world. Because pornography studies are still in their
infancy we are also interested in discussions that focus on
theoretical approaches, methodology and research ethics. Alongside
articles, the journal includes a forum devoted to shorter
observations, developments, debates or issues in porn studies,
designed to encourage exchange and debate.

Porn Studies invites submissions for publication, commencing with its
first issue in Spring 2014. Articles should be between 5000 and 8000
words. Forum submissions should be 500-1500 words. Book reviews should
be between 800 and 1500 words. Submissions will be refereed
anonymously by at least two referees.

In the first instance submissions, queries and suggestions should be
sent to: editorspstudies at gmail.com
