About the Journal

Queer Studies in Media & Popular Culture is a refereed academic journal devoted to the study of representations and expressions of queerness in its various forms. It aims to publish cutting-edge, peer-reviewed scholarship on noteworthy topics at the intersection of media/popular culture and queerness in gender/sexuality. Its contents are international in scope and represent a wide variety of disciplines, with a particular emphasis on perspectives and approaches from the humanities, social sciences, and the arts.
Each issue includes articles pertaining to queerness in media offerings of various kinds and/or in other forms of popular culture.
Many of the journal’s media-based research articles pertain to noteworthy media representations of gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, and/or trans individuals in films, television programs, and/or emerging media forms. However, any topic of relevance to the field of queer theory, as well as any relevant representation that appears in any media form (e.g., comic books, magazines, musical recordings, newspapers, novels, video games, etc.), is appropriate for submission and strongly encouraged.
