From the FLP mailbox, this scholarly journal announcement from co-editors Catherine Villanueva Gardner (UMass Dartmouth, Philosophy and Women’s Studies), Anna M. Klobucka (UMass Dartmouth, Portuguese), and Jeannette E. Riley (UMass Dartmouth, English and Women’s Studies):
We are pleased to announce the publication of the inaugural issue of the Journal of Feminist Scholarship, a new online peer-reviewed journal
As we note in our opening comments, the “fundamental aims of JFS are to offer an open-access academic forum for the publication of innovative, peer-reviewed feminist scholarship across the disciplines and to encourage productive debates among scholars and activists interested in examining methodological directions and political contexts and ramifications of feminist inquiry.”
Our first issue includes an opening section titled “Feminism and Feminist Scholarship Today” with comments from Amrita Basu, Jennifer Baumgardner, Debra A. Castillo, Rachel Blau DuPlessis, Agnieszka Graff, Elizabeth Grosz, Joy A. James, Michael Kimmel, Toril Moi, Karen Offen, and Amy Richards. This section is followed by four articles and a viewpoint article.
