Journal of Feminist Scholarship: New Issue and CFP

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

The second issue of the interdisciplinary Journal of Feminist Scholarship is available here.  The editors’ note provides a preview:

The articles we have chosen for the main section of our second issue build upon the breadth of contemporary feminist inquiry demonstrated by the first issue of JFS . The second issue has at its core three insightful and in-depth analyses ranging from an examination of the 1972 feminist text Novas Cartas Portuguesas and its intersections with French and Anglo-American theorizing to a challenge to US Women’s Studies curricular models for study abroad and global perspectives on women and gender to an article that asks readers to not only better understand intersexed identities but also reconceptualize how we approach difference. Each article is firmly grounded in feminist theory and invites readers to rethink ongoing issues in our culture.

Also, the journal is seeking contributions for the next issue:

At this time, we are actively accepting submissions for issue three, which is due out in November 2012. The Journal of Feminist Scholarship is committed to encouraging a discussion of feminist thought and feminist scholarship for the twenty-first century, their directions today and their relationship to 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 contemporary feminism 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.
