Here is an interesting call for papers, especially for those interested in a scholarly examination of the feminist implications of dairy and egg production:
What are you eating, and what’s eating you? Women are frequently the target audience for many consumption-based industries, especially the food industry. MP Journal seeks academic papers, book reviews and other well-written inquiries on the subject of women and food. All aspects of women and food are welcome, such as women in the food industry (from fry cook to Rachel Ray, from immigrant farm workers to food chemists, from high school home economics teacher to Martha Stewart), women as family food planner and preparer, dieting, eating disorders, food as reward or punishment, social status and food, social role of food, agriculture, animal husbandry, food critics, cookbook authors, the role of mothers and mother figures in the development of eating habits (good and bad), women as the keeper of family food traditions, food and sex, and alternative food lifestyles (vegetarianism, veganism, raw diets, etc).
Submissions may be in any accepted academic format such as MLA, APA, Legal Bluebook, or Chicago Style, but must be consistent throughout and thoroughly and carefully edited. Submissions will be considered only with the attachment of a 50 word bio and CV and submitted before midnight on December 17, 2010. MP Journal is an online, feminist, international journal that is indexed by EBSCO. See our website for more details: http://www.academinist.org/mp.
