CFP (General): NINETEENTH-CENTURY GENDER STUDIES (online journal issue)

The editors of Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies welcome submissions for the Spring 2006 issue of this peer-reviewed, online journal.

Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies is committed to publishing insightful and innovative scholarship on gender studies and nineteenth-century British literature, art and culture. The journal is a collaborative effort that brings together advanced graduate students and scholars from a variety of universities to create a unique voice in the field. We endorse a broad definition of gender studies and welcome submissions that consider gender and sexuality in conjunction with race, class, place and nationality.

The journal is published twice a year (April/ November) and accepts both scholarly articles and book reviews year-round. We welcome articles of 4,000-8,000 words on gender studies and British literature, art and culture during the long nineteenth century. Submissions should be in MLA format and must include a brief biographical note which will be posted if accepted for publication. Please send an electronic version of your submission in Word to: Stacey Floyd ([email protected]) and Melissa Purdue ([email protected]). To facilitate the peer review process, please send two files—one with your article absent of all identifying information and another with your brief biographical note.

Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:

Gender informed (Feminist/Queer Theory/Masculinity Studies/etc.) readings of literature, authors/artists or works of art Gender and empire Gender and class Gender and medicine Gender and law Gender and race Gender and sexuality Gender and humor Gender and science The body Gendered spaces or locations “New Woman” writers The canon Gender and migration/immigration/emigration Gender and travel Transatlantic connections Intersections between written and visual arts British literature/art in European context Domestic violence Gender and popular fiction

Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies also plans to publish a diverse range of book reviews including short reviews of single works, multiple book reviews, short review essays (devoted to 2 or more recent books on a single topic), and full-length review essays (assessing recent developments in established or emerging areas of nineteenth-century studies). Scholars interested in reviewing recent publications should contact the Reviews Editor, Lauren Goodlad, at [email protected]

To be considered for our Spring 2006 issue, submissions must be received by March 1st.
