Call for Submissions for Perspectives on Anarcha-Feminisms

Are you an organizer or activist currently engaged in movement work?  Are you interested in taking time to reflect on the lessons and ideals of this work in order to help advance anarchist praxis? Do you have ideas, experiences, or questions that you would like to develop and share with a wider audience?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, the Perspectives on Anarchist Theory editorial collective would like to hear from you.  As the global political terrain continues to shift and tremble, it is crucial that those of us with visions of a free society share our work and ideas so that we can create a solid, common foundation on which to build a better world.
We are currently interested in reading work related to the following themes on Anarcha-Feminisms for our next issue.

Some sub-themes are:

  • Gender and Power
  • Race and Feminism
  • Queer Practices and Theory
  • Patriarchy and the State
  • Reproductive Justice
  • Indigenous Feminism
  • Sexuality
  • Sex Work
  • Class, Feminism and Gender
  • Children, Power and Oppression
  • Aging, Care and Feminism
  • Global Perspectives on all of the above

Like Anarchism, Anarcha-Feminism has many different facets and orientations. So this might be useful working definition:  Anarcha-Feminism centers gender in the struggles against, and liberation from, all forms of domination. It’s important to focus on gender oppression rather than just feminism, as it alone can leave out many of the intersecting ways that gender is oppressed, such as: heterosexism, patriarchy, homophobia, sexism, heteronormativity, transphobia, ableism, fatphobia and ageism.
Our deadline for the next print issue is November 1st, 2015
All submissions should conform to the following format requirements:

  • Please follow the Chicago Manual of Style for general format and citation guidelines.
  • Please use endnotes rather than footnotes, and keep notes to a minimum.
  • Type your endnotes directly into the text.  Please do not use the “insert note” function in Word, as it is incompatible with our layout software.
  • Do not include page numbers on your manuscript.
  • Do not indent new paragraphs, use a space instead.
  • Please keep in mind that we seek to share these ideas with a broad readership; write in accessible, clear language. Do not assume an academic audience.
  • Be sure to include your name and reliable contact information, as well as a brief (3-6 sentence) bio that you would like printed alongside your article.

Please prepare your manuscript as thoroughly as you can before sending it along for consideration.  If you have a concept for an article but are unsure how to develop and refine the ideas or language, we are happy to help you out with the writing process, particularly if you have never written for publication before.  Please contact us as soon as possible in order to ensure you are able to meet the publication deadline.
