CALL FOR PAPERS (Collection)

Entries are invited for a proposed anthology on the subject of the television series, Gilmore Girls. Now in its fourth season, the series has achieved popular success on a fledgling network. It is also the first TV series "to make it to air supported by the Family Friendly Forum's script development fund. An initiative between some of the nation's top advertisers and The WB, the program is intended to offer a greater array of compelling family programming on network television" ( However, to date, little critical attention has been paid to the series.

As a series about three generations of women, the series offers multiple opportunities for critical analysis of representations of women and women's lives in the media. We invite essays from a variety of perspectives and disciplines, and on a variety of topics:

a.. The concept of family/parenthood
b.. Intergenerational relations
c.. Concepts/constructs of femininity (Emily, Lorelai, Rory, Sookie,Paris, Lane, Mrs. Kim, Babette, Miss Patty)
d.. Concepts/constructs of masculinity (Luke, Jason, Richard, Dean, Jess, Michel, Taylor, Kirk, Jackson)
e.. Lorelai and Rory qua feminists
f.. Aesthetics
g.. Fashion and style
h.. Commodification/consumerism
i.. Intertexuality
j.. Cultural and ethnic diversity (on TV and in Stars Hollow)
k.. "Family values"
l.. Analysis of the "Family Friendly Forum" guidelines in relation to GG.

Final articles should not exceed 6,500 words. They should conform to MLA standards.

Please send abstracts and/or submissions via e-mail (as Word or WordPerfect attachments) or snail-mail (on floppy, ZIP or CD-R).

Deadline for submissions is May 7,2004.
