Law, Gender, and Sexuality: Reflections on "Thinking" and "Doing" Feminist Research

  • Submission closed.

About this Research Topic

This Research Topic launches Society and Social Change, a new feminist platform for inter and trans-disciplinary scholarship in law, gender, and sexuality research.

The driving force behind Society and Social Change is its connections to the Law, Gender, and Sexuality Research Network (LEX). LEX is a collective of international scholars that brings together and champions researchers who are committed to forging new pathways and puncturing intellectual blind spots in our thinking in this area. In the spirit of social change, LEX researchers are at the forefront of social justice and social transformation in a number of key areas (e.g. violence against women, domestic violence, gender-based violence, sexual violence, equality, justice, human rights, sexual citizenship, health, etc). What makes LEX exciting is its members' commitment to achieving social change through their adherence to the civil rights principles of 'good' trouble.

In the spirit of social transformation through 'good trouble', we intend this call to motivate interdisciplinary contributions from feminist academics and researchers that can showcase the breadth of the sophisticated theoretical and empirical work in the field. We welcome all contributions that present cutting-edge and innovative scholarship at the intersections of the following disciplines:

• The arts
• Literature
• Humanities
• Science
• Climate change
• Philosophy
• Law
• Sociology
• Psychology
• Ethics
• History
• Human geography
• Migration studies
• Communication studies
• Criminology, and
• Social policy.

Papers should be approximately 9000 words, including an abstract (150-200words).

Keywords: Feminism, Intersectionality, Good trouble, Social change, Gender, Sexuality, Law

Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
