A Special Issue of /Profesional de la Información(EPI)/

Guest editor:

   Chair and Professor, Communication Studies

/University of Nevada/, Reno


/Profesional de la Información /seeks cutting-edge research studies, theoretical essays, and state-of-the-art critical review articles for a special issue dedicated to sex, gender, sexuality, and communication to be published in Volume 30, Issue 5 (September-October 2021) to be published in the journal. Articles with a pedagogical focus, especially those that elucidate specific concepts, technologies, or processes, will also be considered. This special issue will celebrate methodological and theoretical plurality, with the primary goal being to publish an excellent collection of research and theory that advances thinking about sex, genders, sexualities, and communication.

To that end, the editor will accept manuscripts featuring research using quantitative and/or qualitative social scientific methods; critique-oriented methods such as rhetorical, cultural, or media criticism; and scholarship that is highly creative, especially as it advances theory.

Manuscripts submitted for consideration must clearly advance communicative aspects of one of the following special issue areas:

/Sex/: Research or theorizing that examines sexual communication, ranging from sexual activity to talk about sex to sexual technologies to sex-oriented media studies.

/Genders/: Research or theorizing that examines social and/or cultural notions of identities as they relate to social expectations, performances, transgressions, and/or articulations of masculine and feminine identity. Work that moves beyond masculine/feminine identity is especially welcome, including work that examines transgender and/or gender non-conforming identities.

/Sexualities/: Research or theorizing related to sexual performance, capacities, and feelings. For this special issue, work focused on identity is especially welcomed – including work that adopts intersectional theorizing about sexualities.

Those submitting to the special issue should follow the directions for submission found on the journal website <>

Works will be accepted in both English and Spanish.

Those who are interested in submitting are welcome to contact the guest editor at (jimmiem /at/ <mailto:(jimmiem /at/>
