Call for Papers:
The Journal of Feminist Scholarship is a new twice-yearly, peer-reviewed, open-access journal published online and aimed at promoting feminist scholarship across the disciplines, as well as expanding the reach and definitions of feminist research.
We believe it is time to explore the state of feminist scholarship at the turn of the new century, and we see the endeavor as part of a larger question of where feminism itself is heading. For example, we ask whether it still makes sense to talk of the “waves” of feminism. If so, what is the status of the third wave? Is there a post-third wave? We wish to encourage a discussion of feminist thought for the twenty-first century. What are its directions today, and what relationship does it sustain with the foundations laid down by twentieth-century feminist inquiry and action? We aim to publish work that explores the multiple theoretical paradigms and political agendas of current feminist scholarship and the potential intersections and tensions between these paradigms and agendas. We are especially interested in examining productive controversies and divergences between local and global contexts of feminism. We also welcome submissions that focus on feminist pedagogies and activism.
