The Journal of Feminist Studies is announcing the following themed issues:
Call for Papers and Creative Work on Chicana Studies (Deadline: May 1)
Feminist Studies is planning several Special Issues over the next three to five years. The first will focus on Chicana Studies. As with all our issues, this will include articles from all disciplines, art work, poetry, fiction, memoir, interviews, and commentaries. If you are currently working in this field and are interested in submitting to us, please contact the Editorial Director, Claire Moses, to discuss your work with her.
Feminist Studies is committed to publishing an interdisciplinary body of feminist knowledge that sees intersections of gender with racial identity, sexual orientation, economic means, geographical location, and physical ability as the touchstone for our politics and our intellectual analysis. Whether work is drawn from the complex past or the shifting present, the pieces that appear in Feminist Studies address social and political issues that intimately and significantly affect women and men in the United States and around the world.
Authors should send a hard copy of their work, along with an electronic version to the Feminist Studies office. We will not process creative submissions until we receive both a hard copy and an electronic version, either by e-mail or on disk. Since creative work will not be returned, authors should retain a copy of their work. If other work is cited in the piece, please use our citation style.”
For the future, we are planning Special Issues on Transgender Studies and Popular Music Culture. We invite submissions that are not presently under consideration elsewhere.
