Call for Papers:
This special issue of Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies will explore reciprocal relationships between gender and the city. For many decades feminist scholars in numerous and diverse fields have studied the importance of gender in constituting cities and the role of urban places in constructing gender. We want to develop a vigorous cross and inter-disciplinary conversation about these relationships of gender and the city. We therefore call for papers and creative works that analyze urban political, social, economic, and cultural experiences, institutions, and representations; the urban environment, including interior and exterior spatial arrangements and architecture; and the role of women in this dynamic relationship of gender and the urban.
An inter- and multidisciplinary journal, Frontiers welcomes submissions of creative works such as artwork, fiction, and poetry, as well as scholarly papers. Works must be original, and not published or under consideration for publication elsewhere. We encourage those interested in contributing to the special issue to email the guest editors.
Submissions should be sent to Frontiers as email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org or on disc according to submission guidelines at http://www.asu.edu/clas/history/frontiers/submit.html. Author names should not appear on the manuscript; list contact information separately.
