INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL FOR INTERSECTIONAL FEMINIST STUDIES
CALL FOR PAPERS
The International Journal for Intersectional Feminist Studies (IJFIFS) is a half-yearly peer-reviewed academic journal produced by the Project Monma research centre. It aims to publish research, reports, and literature reviews relating to intersectional feminist theory and/or relevant to issues of gender broadly (the way that gender is represented, codified, consumed, or challenged within certain contexts, for example). IJFIFS is designed to be an interdisciplinary journal, and it encourages young scholars and students within all relevant disciplines to submit their work for publication.
Accordingly we invite contributions. The call for our issue is general, so as long as articles deal with issues of gender and/or relate to intersectional feminist theory we are happy to consider them for publication. Contributions will be blind peer-reviewed, and submitted work should be original and not published or under consideration for publication elsewhere. All communication, including manuscripts and general enquiries, should be directed to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
