Asian Women seeks submissions for recent gender issues such as women and welfare, women’s rights, eco-feminism, health, women and biotechnology, women and history, men’s studies and other relevant themes in gender studies.

Black Women, Gender and Families (BWGF) welcomes research and theoretical submissions in history, sociology, anthropology, psychology, education, economics, political science, and English that are framed by Black Women’s Studies perspectives and a policy or social analysis.  Interdisciplinary, comparative, and transnational studies of the African Diaspora and other women, families, and communities of color are also encouraged.

The primary mission of BWGF is to analyze, develop, and further Black Women’s Studies paradigms.  It centers the study of Black women and gender within the critical discourses of history, the social sciences, and the humanities.  Second, this journal provides an Africana/Black Studies and Women’s Studies cross-field and interdisciplinary venue for Black womanist and Black feminist theories, methodologies, and analyses.  Third, it more fully integrates gender as an analytic category, and strengthens Black Women’s Studies as a paradigm for studying black women, gender, families, and communities–especially policy-related issues within the broader disciplines of Black Studies and Women’s Studies.  Fourth, this journal provides the space for interdisciplinary, comparative/transnational studies of Global Africa/the African Diaspora and other women, families, and communities of color.

Co-editors Barbara Molony and Jennifer Nelson are looking for submissions for a book- length collection of essays that will advance our contemporary understandings of the history of feminism. We are particularly interested in essays that treat the rejection of “hegemonic” feminism by marginalized feminist groups, however hegemony itself may also be redefined and/or explored, or authors might explore internal hegemonies that have been produced within marginalized movements. We welcome papers that cover contemporary historical feminism(s) in a variety of national or transnational contexts, but particularly Asia, Latin America, or Europe.

Inquiries and abstracts may be sent to Jennifer Nelson at:

Jennifer Nelson, Ph.D.
Director, Women’s and Gender Studies Program
University of Redlands
