Call for Papers for The Gender and Sexuality of Borders and Margins
The Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies invites feminist scholars working in any discipline or interdisciplinary area in the interpretive social sciences and humanities to submit area-specific manuscripts on any topic related to the theme of The Gender and Sexuality of Borders and Margins. Manuscripts may address any historical period in any part of the region. Areas of focus may relate to refugees, domestic workers, migration or migrants, law, cartography, dispersal, violence, ethnic or religious “minorities,” queers, gender and sexual non-conformity, sex work, and so on. Manuscripts are expected to substantiate a thesis based on original scholarship grounded in primary sources (literary, visual, archival, textual, ethnographic, artistic) and engage with relevant transnational gender and sexuality scholarship. The highest quality manuscripts will be published as articles in a JMEWS themed issue in 2017. Please follow all submission guidelines for articles, including word count. Manuscripts are due on or before June 15, 2016 to our online submission system.
