Special Issue "Gender’s Influence on Genealogy Narratives"
A special issue of Genealogy (ISSN 2313-5778).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 May 2017)
This Special Issue of Genealogy invites essays on the topic, “Gender’s Influence on Genealogy Narratives”. The goal of the issue is to examine the impact of gender on family, immigration, or genealogy narratives. Highlighting the contributions that these narratives can make to an interdisciplinary array of research interests is at the forefront of this issue. Contributors are asked to explain how and/or where gender and genealogy intersect and the impact it might have upon the genealogy narrative families create and sustain about their experiences. The editorial team hopes to provide a wide spectrum with regard to discipline or sub-discipline and invites contributions that strengthen and broaden the framework for genealogy studies. Some potential areas of focus may include the following, although are submissions are welcome and encouraged:
Impact of gender roles/norms throughout historical documentation.
Role of gender within family narratives as they intersect with genealogy collection and preservation.
Reclamation of women’s stories via theoretical/epistemological framework of Genealogy Studies.
Family/gender roles privileged or marginalized within immigration narratives.
The impact of gender upon genealogical narratives and the social construction of family lineage.
Exploring the intersections of gender, genealogy, and narrative theory (including, but not limited to: the disciplines of anthropology, literary studies, media studies, communication, psychology, and sociology).
