Intersections: Women’s and Gender Studies in Review across Disciplines is an interdisciplinary graduate student publication welcoming work from graduate students within and beyond the University of Texas. We are committed to the interdisciplinary research of women’s and gender issues and are affiliated with the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies. The journal encourages scholars in every field to contribute book reviews, scholarly essays, creative writing, and artwork relating to this issue’s theme, “(The) Future (of) Feminisms.” We hope that the theme will inspire people to think creatively about the future of feminisms locally, globally, and across disciplines.
Submissions might address but are not limited to the following topics:
- The future of feminist identity (global feminism, third wave, post-feminism, girl studies, feminist as label)
- The relationship between feminism and social forces (the state, the media, global economies, law, and technology).
- The intersection of feminism and other forms of activism (race/ethnicity, labor, gay rights, immigration, nationalist struggles, sex workers rights, eco-feminism).
- The future of women’s welfare (health, education, human rights, work/labor).
- Feminism in the academy (teaching feminism, the activism/theory divide, women in male-dominated professions and academic fields).
Submit a 200-300 word abstract to Intersections.firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1, 2006. Completed papers and artwork are due by February 1, 2007. All submissions should include author’s name and department, contact information, title of submission, and word count. Papers should conform to APA (American Psychological Association) style or to a publication style appropriate to the author’s field. Book reviews should be of recent texts (published within the last two years) and should be 750-1250 words. Scholarly essays and creative writing should be limited to 5,000 words.
