Feminist Modernist Studies Join the Conversation on Feminist Modernist Art, Literature, and Culture

Now Welcoming Submissions

Feminist Modernist Studies

Build a global audience and share your latest research with the brand new journal Feminist Modernist Studies. Your contributions are important to the rich study of feminist modernist writers and producers of art/culture over the long twentieth-century.

Emphasizing modern women, gender, sexuality and feminist issues, the journal offers a much needed venue for ongoing work in the burgeoning, feminist areas from cultural, theoretical, formalist, and geographical standpoints. We invite you to make an impact, join the conversation, and submit your scholarly paper to this unique interdisciplinary journal.

Feminist Modernist Studies encompasses a wide range of topics, which could include, but are not limited to:

  • Feminist areas of cultural studies and global, transnational studies;
  • the recovery of under-explored or “lost” women writers and producers of art/culture worldwide across all races and ethnicities; 
  • and new developments in feminist critical theory--including feminist work addressing race, class, LGBTQ and disability studies, ecocriticism, transnational theory, “space” studies, anthropocene theory, “thing” theory, and post human scholarship.

All manuscripts will undergo peer review, coordinated by the Editor and supported by an international editorial board.

We thank you for your attention to the study of modern women, gender, sexuality and feminist issues, and look forward to receiving your manuscript!
