Group Identity and LIFE Magazine in the Post-World War II Era
Identity Politics and LIFE Magazine in the Post-World War II Era
We are seeking chapters for an edited collection focusing on the identity politics of LIFE magazine, particularly the manner in which this magazine helped construct and disseminate an "us" vs. "them" dynamic. The editors intend this work to be interdisciplinary and are interested in a variety of approaches, particularly chapters focused on LIFE's written and/or photographic treatment of:
- The Cold War
- Post-war Japan
- Civil Rights Movement
- World leaders
- World events not related to the Cold War
- Women or feminists
- The American South
This list is by no means exclusive. We welcome any and all research that is focused on LIFE magazine in the post-World War II era.
To be considered, please submit a C.V. and a 2-page chapter proposal to LIFEmagazinebook@gmail.com by Dec. 1, 2015.
