Call for Papers: Fashion, Photography and the Erotic

Call for Papers: Fashion, Style & Popular Culture

Fashion and photography have for long in uenced how we look at sexuality. From the iconic and sexually charged advertisements of Calvin Klein and Benetton in the 1980s, to the heroin chic movement of the 1990s, the connection between fashion, photography and sexuality has been ever present.

Recently the rise in popularity of the ‘fashion lm’ as well as a growing trend for collaborations and crossovers by photographers, designers and artists have brought new dimensions to this subject matter, further blurring the lines between fashion, ne art and pornography. Whether perceived as distasteful, shocking, interesting,

or thought provoking, it has nonetheless continued to be a highly relevant and in uential re ection of the societal issues.

This special issue of Fashion, Style & Popular Culture is aimed at all aspects of fashion and photography as they relate to contemporary sexuality, as well as their intersections with lm, music videos and social media.

The call is open to written manuscripts as well as visual art that fall within the category. All topics will be double-blind peer-reviewed. 

Submission Deadline: December 1, 2018
