This special issue seeks to interact with and advance the continuum of Black women's studies with a special focus on Black women and politics. The editors are soliciting articles for a themed issue of the National Political Science Review (NPSR) to be published in 2014. This special edition will be devoted to (1) questions of epistemology and the politics of knowledge production; and (2) the lives and lived realities of Black women--their cultures and politics, their representations in media, their involvement in new media, and their activism. We invite research length papers on Black women in politics and Black gender politics from a wide range of disciplines including Black women's studies, political science, religion, Black Studies, sociology, Women's Studies, and philosophy among others. Papers may take any theoretical and or methodological perspective that centers Black women’s political phenomena — broadly defined.
