Frontiers Journal welcomes responses for the 2012 elections
Frontiers: A Journal of Women's Studies is delighted to continue our interactive column, “Feminist Currents.” Eileen Boris, Hull Professor and chair of the Feminist Studies Program at the University of California, Santa Barbara, created this column. She will now be joined by Beth Currans, Assistant Professor of Women's and Gender Studies at Eastern Michigan University.
Below Boris and Currans pose a question to our readers and all interested feminists, whether they find this column in Frontiers or on any number of postings in cyber space. All are invited to e-mail Frontiers their answers, which Boris and Currans will edit by synthesizing and summarizing. Their intent is to cook up a gumbo out of your responses: mixing, seasoning, and throwing in their own ingredients, as they enable us to engage in feminist dialectic.
The response of Boris and Currans will appear in a future issue of Frontiers. We see this exchange as a way to strengthen and enrich our feminist community. Or, in Boris’s words, “‘Feminist Currents’ is a place for feminists to debate pressing and not so pressing (sometimes whimsical but hopefully compelling) issues of the day, to share perspectives and thoughts, develop strategies, and connect scholarship and teaching to social justice.”
What do you think the significance of the 2012 U.S. election is for women's, gender, and sexuality studies?
You can email your reflections, from 30 to 300 words, to email@example.com no later than November 25. In your subject line please type "Feminist Currents." Unless you notify us otherwise in your email, your response signifies that we may paraphrase your thoughts, quote directly from them, and use your name and affiliation.
