CFP: Gender (Studies) in Exile (Intersections, East European Journal of Society and Politics)

 (IEEJSP) invites original research papers for its thematic issue on “Gender (Studies) in Exile”.

Guest Editors: Judit Takács (KWI Essen; Centre for Social Sciences); Achim Rohde (Academy in Exile, Freie Universität Berlin)

This thematic issue aims to bring together scholars with an interest in conducting gender studies research in challenging, or in some cases hostile, circumstances, especially in countries where gender studies as an academic discipline is being delegitimized by state authorities. We welcome papers that explore theoretically and/or empirically the strategies, narratives, and underlying motivations that fuel such campaigns against gender studies as well as their academic and social impact. We are equally interested in contributions that focus on responses and counter strategies developed by gender studies scholars and scholars in exile in general. We encourage the application of a broad understanding of exile, including external exile and various forms of inner exile such as a condition of voicelessness, and non-territorial exile at home.
