Signal Boost: Call for Papers: Intersections Journal

Intersections: Women’s and Gender Studies in Review Across Disciplines is an interdisciplinary graduate student publication welcoming work from current graduate students.  We are committed to the interdisciplinary research of women’s and gender issues and are affiliated with the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies at UT Austin.  The journal encourages scholars in every field to contribute book reviews, scholarly essays, creative writing, and artwork relating to this issue’s theme, “Gender & Social Justice.” We expect that this theme will inspire submissions that put gender and sexuality in conversation with interlocking identities of race, economic class, disability, nationality, and indigeneity.

Submissions might address, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • LGBTQ activism in local and transnational contexts
  • Colonialism, occupation, displacement, and decolonization
  • Processes of and resistance to state violence
  • Legislative and policy activism
  • Movement, migration and diasporas
  • Feminist human rights advocacy
  • Border work
  • Environmental and ecological activism
  • Technology, media, and social justice
