Women's Studies in Communication News

Dr. Claire Sisco King is forthcoming editor


ORWAC welcomes Claire Sisco King, Associate Professor at Vanderbilt University, as the forthcoming editor of Women’s Studies in Communication for 2020-2022. She is a leading scholar of media and visual culture. Her book, Washed in Blood: Male Sacrifice, Trauma, and the Cinema, was named an Outstanding Book of the Year in 2013 by Critical Cultural Studies division of the National Communication Association. In addition to her article in WSiC, King has published essays in a wide variety of journals including Feminist Media StudiesQED: A Journal in GLBTQ Worldmaking, Quarterly Journal of Speech, and Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies.

The current editor, Kristen Hoerl, and Claire Sisco King are working together to ensure a smooth transition process for all essays under review. Kristen Hoerl is accepting new submissions until January 2019 and has several issues remaining to be filled under her editorship. 

WSIC invites contributions that advance our understanding of the intersections of gender and race, ethnicity, nationality, ability, sexuality, and class, as well as the articulations between gendered performances, power, and representation in public culture. Topically and methodologically inclusive, WSIC publishes quantitative, qualitative, and critical communication scholarship drawing from a variety of areas including but not limited to interpersonal, organizational, performance, rhetoric, media, and cultural studies. The editor is committed to promoting the best work that falls within these parameters and also to encouraging the development of new voices and new projects that challenge conventions guiding communication scholarship. Feminist studies concerning queer and transgender politics, masculinity, dis/ability, labor, transnationalism, postcolonialism, and critical race theory are especially encouraged at this time.
