Journalism and Gender Studies

Editors: Cláudia Lago (School of Communications and Arts, University of São Paulo - SBPJor) Ana Carolina Temer (Postgraduate Program in Communication, Information and Communication Department, Federal University of Goiás - Alaic); Marli dos Santos (Postgraduate Program in Social Communication, São Paulo Methodist University - Alaic) Sadia Jamil (Journalism Research and Education Section of IAMCR

Media is an unparalleled space for the construction and delivery of Gender representation, as well as practice and norms about sexuality. This centrality, all over the world, to a greater or lesser extent, is exercised in order to reinforce gender stereotypes, adopting perspectives that favor male and heteronormativity.

From this assumption, numerous initiatives at a global level have been adopted not only to identify and monitor the diversions operated by media coverage, but also to point out other possibilities and advances, such as the World Association for Christian Communication (WACC) Global Media Monitoring project, or Unesco's Global Alliance on Media and Gender (GAMAP), which aims to promote gender equality in the media

From the point of view of numerous researches, there are also the initiatives and movements that deal with gender issues in the media in general and in Journalism in particular, although it seems that most of the work starts from areas other than Communication. To stimulate and highlight this crucial issue, the Brazilian Association of Journalism Researchers (SBPJor) joins the Journalism Working Group of the Latin American Association of Communication Researchers (Journalism-Alaic WG) and the Journalism Research and Education Section of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (JRE of IAMCR) to promote the Dossier Gender Studies in Journalism.

The proposal is to welcome papers that focus on Gender issues in their complexity, with research that considers the adoption or absence of a gender perspective in journalistic content, and how this contributes to reinforcing gender, racial and ethnic stereotypes in their crisscrossing. Work that focus on how journalism frames, selects, presents, gender violence, feminicide, rape culture, homo and transphobia, as well as texts that reflect the journalism agenda and gender issues and intersectionality and aspects that make it difficult or impossible to see the discussions on gender identities and sexualities are stimulated. Work on the impacts on the underrepresentation of gender diversity in press production, or on gender and sexuality prejudices in professional practice, as well as texts dealing with everyday representations involving gender, is also expected. Finally, work that analyzes new forms of representation and journalistic positioning in the face of Gender issues, with initiatives to confront stereotypes and construct an inclusive and non-generalized journalism is stimulated.
