CFP: Parenting, Parenthood and Gender in Contemporary Asia
Theme: "Parenting, Parenthood and Gender in Contemporary Asia"
Journal: Intersections: Gender and Sexuality in Asia and the Pacific
Guest editors: Kristina Göransson, Assistant Professor, School of Social Work, Lund University and Lisa Eklund, Post-doctoral Research Fellow, Department of Sociology, Lund University
This edition of Intersections invites papers that address the ways in which material and emotional investments in childrearing are rendered meaningful, and its implications for family life, parenting strategies and gender relations. The aim of the special issue is twofold: (1) to contribute with a more nuanced understanding of the empirical realities of shifting norms and practices surrounding parenting and parenthood, and (2) to further develop theory which contributes to understanding the intersections between gender, sexuality and generation when it comes to parenting and parenthood. We invite papers from researchers working in relevant fields, such as anthropology, sociology, gender studies, media studies, Asian studies, history, social work, and more.

Abstracts (500 words) are due 15 February 2015 to the guest editors.
