"Domestic Frontiers," A Special Issue of FRONTIERS: A JOURNAL OF WOMEN STUDIES
Call for Papers Date:
In this special issue of Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies, guest editors Victoria Haskins and Margaret Jacobs consider ‘the home’ as both site and archive of colonization. In domestic and intimate borderlands – the worlds of the everyday and indeed the mundane that so often are overlooked in the highly charged and male-oriented debates in the histories of colonization – we look for the myriad ways in which women experience, create and engage with the conditions of colonization. We are interested in the private and personal experiences of colonialization and the ways in which the broader colonial processes of subjugation, accommodation and resistance intersect and are encapsulated in the ‘peculiar intimacy’ (as Sara Suleri calls it) of domestic lives.
As Frontiers is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary journal, we welcome submissions of creative works such as artwork, fiction and poetry, as well as scholarly papers, addressing women’s domestic lives in colonization. Works must be original, and not published or under consideration for publication elsewhere. We encourage those interested in contributing to contact either or both of the guest editors at their email address.
