Feminist Formations invites submissions that reflect the journal’s mission to cultivate a forum where feminists from around the world articulate research, theory, activism, teaching, and learning.
An interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal, we publish innovative work by scholars, activists, artists, poets and practitioners in feminist, gender, and sexuality studies. Our subject matter includes national, global, and transnational feminist thought and practice; the cultural and social politics of genders and sexualities; and historical and contemporary studies of gendered experience. The journal values established and emerging lines of inquiry and methods that engage the complexities of gender as implicated in forms of power such as race, ethnicity, class, nation, migration, ability, and religion.
We are particularly interested in cutting-edge feminist work in the following areas:
|Affect Theory||Critical Youth Studies||Posthuman Studies|
|Asian and Asian-American Studies||Critical Geography||Public Scholarship|
|Black Studies||Cultural Studies||Queer of Color Critique|
|Borderlands Studies||Disability Studies||Queer Theory|
|Chican@ and Latina Studies||Indigenous Studies||Rhetoric|
|Critical Ethnic Studies||Performance Studies||Trans* Studies|
|Transnational Feminisms||Visual Cultures|
