“About Gender” Journal Calls for Articles on Current State of Masculinities Studies

1 Jul

AG About Gender, International Journal of Gender Studies, has announced a call for articles for its eleventh issue entitled Masculinities:Trans/forming Men: Changes, Resiliences and Reconfigurations, edited by Krizia Nardini (Universitat Obierta de Catalunya) and Stefano Ciccone (Genoa University). This issue of AboutGender wants to inquire into the current state of affairs in masculinities research: its theoretical specificities (if any), its relations with different currents in gender studies and with different political/activist stands, especially considering the intersections of masculinity research, queer perspectives and LGBTQ studies.

AG About Gender, International Journal of Gender Studies is a peer-reviewed international journal which aims to represent a reference point for scholars, academics and non-academics engaged in research and reflection on gender, with an interdisciplinary view. AG intends to enhance the dialogue between interpretative approaches and different analytical perspectives. AG is published every six months in Italian and English and proposes either theoretical and empirical original articles, essays and papers.

Papers should be between 5000 and 8000 words (excluding bibliography). Please follow the instructions gathered in the Author Guidelines. Contributions should be accompanied by: a brief abstract (maximum length: 150 words); some keywords (from a minimum of 3 to a maximum of 5). Abstract and keywords should be in English. All texts will be transmitted in a format compatible with Windows (.doc or .rtf), following the instructions provided by the Peer Review Process. Please see the Journal’s Authors guidelines.

Contributions must be sent by 15th October 2016.
