Next special issue of CJCS will be devoted to gender studies. After discussing several options, we have decided to bet for this striking topic. The call for papers is already available (deadline 30 January 2012) and we are confident that we will receive a good set of original papers. Media and cultural studies in Catalonia have done great progressions in the field of gender studies during the last years. There are several departments, not only in the communication field but also in sociology, anthropology or linguistic studies, which have research groups and individual specialists in the topic. The focus of the issue will be ‘gender relations’ in the sense that they are not static and their representation in fictional and reality programs offers ideological positions regarding the human being. The topic also has branches on the study of violence and gender, power and language, and other interesting perspectives.
