Frontiers: A Journal of Women's Studies, Call for papers on
Gender, Place, and Politics for Special Issue
Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies is calling for scholarly and creative works for a special issue on gender, place, and politics. The editors envision papers that range from the impact of place upon the gender dynamics of local politics to those that ask questions about how the growth of global politics has affected gender.
Frontiers has been pushing the boundaries of feminist scholarship since 1975. An interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary journal, it has been particularly concerned with the multicultural experience of women in the American West.
Now Frontiers is moving to Arizona State University where it will acquire new editors, Susan Gray and Gayle Gullett. In Arizona Frontiers will continue exploring topics in womenís studies and will examine new kinds of border crossings. The new Frontiers will both embrace the West and move beyond national boundaries; it will look at the relationships among place, region, and topics of longstanding concern to feminist scholarsógender, race, ethnicity, class, and sexual orientation. This special issue will inaugurate Frontierís new geographical and intellectual location.
