CALL FOR PAPERS

Special Issue of Gender & Society on "Transnational Analyses of Gender, Sexuality, and State/Nation."

Guest Editors: Jyoti Puri (Simmons College), Hyun Sook Kim (Wheaton College), Paola Bacchetta (University of California-Berkeley)

Length of manuscript submissions: 25-30 pages

In the past decade, feminist scholars have been at the forefront of drawing attention to the gendered and sexual ramifications of globalization. Indeed, feminist scholars have encouraged others to move away from a domestic, insular focus toward locating analyses of gender and sexuality within a more global context. But in many cases, analyses that place gender and sexuality in global contexts are theoretically and conceptually limited. Learn more >> (pdf)
