CFP: Gender Justice, Intersectional Identity

Generic banner for a call for papers

Call for papers for the essay collection Gender Justice: Theoretical Practices of Intersectional Identity in the series Law, Culture and Humanities ( Email abstract submissions to Elaine Wood at Deadline is June 29, 2019. 

This essay collection examines how gender, as a category of identity, must continually be understood in relation to how structures of inequality define and shape its meaning. It asks how notions of “justice” shape gender identity and whether the legal justice system itself privileges notions of gender or is itself gendered. Shaped by politics and policy, Gender Justice seeks proposals for essays that contribute to understanding how theoretical practices of intersectionality relate to structures of inequality and relations formed as a result of their interaction.

Given its theme, the collection invites essays that examine theoretical practices of intersectional identity at the nexus of “gender and justice” that might also relate to issues of: sexuality, race, class, age, and ability.

Submissions should include: 1) an abstract of 200 words; 2) an author biography of 100 words
