Library Juice Press seeks book proposals and manuscripts for a new series, Gender and Sexuality in Librarianship, edited by Emily Drabinski. This series will publish works from both practical and theoretical perspectives that critically engage issues in the LIS field related to gender and sexual difference. Potential subjects include:
- Queer and feminist approaches to traditional library topics including classification, pedagogy, collection development
- Works that address gender and sexuality issues in conjunction with other articulations of difference including race, class, nationality, etc.
- Practical approaches to developing community-based GLBTQ collections
- Materials addressing library needs of specific populations, e.g., GLBTQ youth, elders, etc.
- Workplace issues, e.g., ‘coming out’ at work
- Historical perspectives on GLBTQ and women’s issues in the library
- Works that bring library issues into conversation with contemporary theoretical debates in feminist, queer, and gender studies
Please submit queries, proposals, and manuscripts to Emily Drabinski, firstname.lastname@example.org.
