The journal of sexualities, gender + justice is an independently peer-reviewed journal which aims to promote discussion of, and provide a forum for the analysis of, relations between and within sexualities, genders and law from critical and interdisciplinary perspectives.
The theme for the inaugural issue is
– a topic which seems out of place in an academic and political environment that is preoccupied with international security, economic rationalism and new pandemics. And yet a critical glance reveals that these”objective”and”rational”topics are couched in highly emotive language and often draw heavily upon generalisations about gender and sexuality.
The journal of sexualities, gender + justice invites submissions on the topic of just love, and encourages analyses across plural and different sexualities and genders, including but not limited to heterosexual, queer, intersex, transgender, masculinities and femininities and analyses that address the appearance of law in different sites, such as word and image, popular culture, cinema, policy, daily life, judgments and legislation.
In particular, submissions could address one or more of the following:
· the end/s of sexuality
· pain, pleasure and polyamory
· sex, death and terror
· protocols of engagement
· the sexual imagination of law.
Any style of submission up to 8000 words is welcome, including scholarly articles, poetry, prose, scripts and visuals. (Photographs and drawings will be published on-line.) Submissions from any relevant discipline, including law, history, sociology, politics and psychology, as well as from activists and practitioners, are encouraged. A style guide is available on the journal’s website:
Submissions due 30 June 2006
