Welcome to this interdisciplinary blog presented by the
Centre for the Study of Women and Gender at Warwick
This primarily academic focussed blog will be run by the CSWG graduate seminar committee and aims to promote the work of scholars conducting research around topics relating to women and gender studies. It will also include posts from visiting academics and contributions from the graduate seminar presenters.
We warmly welcome submissions from academics and students working in, but not limited to, the following:
• Reflections on issues relating to the production of feminist research, including feminist theory and methodologies;
• Academics forging links with relevant contemporary activism;
• Issues from any discipline relating to a broad range of gender related topics, such as gender and education, politics, transgender and sexualities, feminism and women’s rights, masculinities and femininities, media and culture, and work, employment and the family.
• Anyone can contribute; we welcome, and actively encourage, a variety of voices.
• Though the focus of the blog remains primarily academic in nature, we are happy to accept a range of content from opinion pieces to short essays. Please note the maximum word limit of 1000 words.
• Please include references so that readers have the opportunity to carry out further reading.
• Please include a brief biography - no more than a few lines - with all submissions. Although we would prefer to avoid anonymity in order to promote transparency, we appreciate there may be instances where this would not be appropriate.
The call for submissions remains open throughout the Autumn term
