Cynthia Chris and David A. Gerstner are co-editing an upcoming special issue of WSQ. As part of the journal’s format, each issue contains book reviews that relate to the volume’s theme. The theme under which we are working is “Engage!” (please see our CFP for full details: http://www.feministpress.org/wsq/current-call-papers ). Book reviews are bundled with two or three books that conceptually relate to the issue’s theme. This model has the advantage of both providing reviews of several new books while ‘engaging’ a dialogue between or among authors.
With this in mind we seek book reviewers who wish to rigorously discuss topical works and contribute to the scholarly mission that underlines WSQ. While we include a list of books available for your consideration to review, we encourage you to suggest books about which you have interest in writing and have intellectual and conceptual relationship to ‘Engage!’ The deadline for reviews is: March 12, 2013.
Please contact both Cynthia and David by December 1, 2012 if you wish to take part in our project: (Cynthia.Chris@csi.cuny.edu and firstname.lastname@example.org). Please include your cv.
A list of books is included here and currently available for review from the WSQ offices.
