CFP: Mediations of Food and Identity (The Global Media Journal – Canadian Edition)

Call for Papers
2019: Volume 11, Issue 1
Mediations of Food: Identity, Power, and Contemporary Global Imaginaries
Guest Editor:
Dr. Tina Sikka, Newcastle University, UK
In the field of transnational media studies, food and food cultures are
traditionally examined as type of media content, environmental/commodity
object, or mode of sustenance (with some cultural significance), or,
alternatively, as medium through which relations of gender, class,
sexuality, and dis/ability are made manifest. Given this bifurcated
lens, this issue seeks to bring together articles that examine the nexus
between food cultures, identity, and media representation in more
detail. Specifically, we seek submissions that use food as a lens
through which to study how its mediated representation (e.g. television,
print, film, the Internet/social media) reflects complicated histories
of colonialism, empire, neoliberalism, and inequality, but also cultural
resilience, social belonging, community, and political awareness.
Papers that draw into this discussion the complicated relationship
between food media and racialisation, gender, class, sexuality,
dis/ability, and other manifestations of identity are particularly
welcome – especially those that take an intersectional approach and
engage with the significance of changing and culturally contingent
conceptions of health and bodily comportment. Articles that examine the
use of food as a form of power and resistance, in both productive and
dangerous ways, and which reveal how larger patters oppression and
marginalization intersect with the social imagery, political economy,
public policy, and cultural survival are also desirable.
Topics for this issue might include (but are not limited to):
•Digital media representation and food culture
•Food and intersectional identities
•Food and the politics of representation
•Food and post-colonialism
•Neoliberalism and global food regimes
•Food, privilege, and mediated cultural capital
•The cultural economics of food
•Food and transnational identities
•Food and social activism
•Food, power, and bodies
•Food, power, and discourse
•Food, capitalist forms of signification, and resistance

*‘/Pope Francis and the Media/’.*
(Special Issue: Edited by
Guido Gili, Università degli studi del Molise
Carlo Nardella, Università Statale di Milano)
Religion and media are more closely intertwined than ever before. Media
play an increasingly central role in making religions publicly visible.
The “mediatization of religion”, a long-term process through which the
media have become integrated into the workings of religious
organizations, is variable and dependent on social and institutional
Under Pope Francis, the Catholic Church has developed and specified the
particular form of the religion-media relationship shaped under Pope
John Paul II. His innovation follows from an ability to construct a
simple, direct, and widely accessible message that hinges, on the one
hand, on the promotion of compassion and solidarity, and on the other,
on the recognition of problematic situations within and beyond the
Catholic Church. The Pope’s new way of communicating through and with
the media is essential, as is the fact that he derives from it his huge
popularity. It is a way of communicating that – it is important to note
– also acknowledges the existence of oppositions and criticism, related
for example to the scandals and inner conflicts that have recently
challenged the Holy See’s global image.
The interest in his persona, his popularity, and the particular
opposition he confronts, have attracted the attention of commentators
and scholars, which has produced a considerable volume of publications
on Francis’ figure and on his papacy. Nonetheless, only a small number
of these publications focus on the relationship between the Pope,
Catholic institutions, and the media. Perspective made even more
interesting by the fact that the pope’s presence and message spread
today not only on traditional media, but also on digital media.
The N. 3 2019 of “Problemi dell’informazione” provides an opportunity to
broaden and deepen this empirical and conceptual perspective and in
particular to investigate the dynamics and meanings of the relationship
between Francis and the media, by recognizing its continuities and
innovations. More specifically, this call for papers invites
contributions that address themes related to:
•    Media and issues of authority
•    Digital media strategies
•    Papal images and their meanings
•    The Church’s crisis and the media
•    News coverage of papal visits
•    Theology and philosophy of communication
•    Pope Francis’s discourse and his media representation
•    The Catholic Church and the Internet
