Open Call for papers for special issue of
Society & Social Change
‘Law, Gender and Sexuality: Reflections on “Thinking” and “Doing” Feminist Research’
Editors Dr Anna Carline and Dr Sharron A. FitzGerald
This special issue launches Society & Social Change a new feminist platform for inter and trans disciplinary scholarship in law, gender and sexuality research.
The driving force behind Society & Social Change is its connections to the Law, Gender and Sexuality Research Network (LEX). LEX is a collective of international scholars that brings together and champions researchers who are committed to forging new pathways and puncturing conceptual blind spots in our thinking in this area. In the spirit of social change, LEX Researchers are at the forefront of social justice and social transformation in a number of key areas (e.g. violence against women, domestic violence, gender-based violence, sexual violence, equality, justice human rights, sexual citizenship, health etc). What makes LEX exciting is its members’ commitment to achieving social change through their adherence to the civil rights principles of ‘good’ trouble.
In the spirit of social transformation through ‘good trouble’, we intend this call to motivate interdisciplinary contributions from feminist academics and researchers that can showcase the breath of the sophisticated theoretical and empirical work in the field. We welcome all contributions that present cutting-edge and innovative scholarship at the intersections of the following disciplines:
- The arts
- Climate change
- Human geography
- Migration studies
- Communications studies
- Criminology and
- Social policy.
Papers should be approximately 9,000 words, including an abstract (150-200 words)
