Gender & The City: Call for Papers


The editors of the inter- and multidisciplinary journal Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies have recently announced a call for papers/poetry/fiction/artwork pertaining to a special issue devoted to exploring reciprocal relationships between gender and the city:

"For many decades feminist scholars in numerous and diverse fields have studied the importance of gender in constituting cities and the role of urban places in constructing gender. We want to develop a vigorous cross and inter-disciplinary conversation about these relationships of gender and the city. We therefore call for papers and creative works that analyze urban political, social, economic, and cultural experiences, institutions, and representations; the urban environment, including interior and exterior spatial arrangements and architecture; and the role of women in this dynamic relationship of gender and the urban."

Frontiers accepts submissions of creative works such as artwork, fiction, and poetry, as well as scholarly papers. To read more, click here.
