The Research Handbook on Gender, Sexuality, and Law, published by Edward Elgar invites submissions for edited chapters. As part of Edward Elgar’s Law and Society series (edited by Austin Sarat (Amherst) and Rosemary Hunter (Queen Mary, London)), the collection seeks not only to document the prodigious debates of the present, but point the way to future socio-legal scholarship in this area.
This collection will consist of 35 chapters, creating an international narrative that seeks to investigate the intersections between law and society. Each chapter will consist of 7,000 words (including references) and will use the OSCOLA referencing style. Due to author withdrawals, we have two vacancies.
We welcome chapters presenting perspectives from Asia, particularly China, on Gender, Sexuality and Law, and are open to proposals on specific subjects.
We would also welcome proposals on language/freedom of speech/legal hate crime protections, and are open to proposals on specific projects.
If interested, please submit a 300 word abstract to alexander.maine[at]northumbria.ac.uk by the 29th September.
This collection will be included in the Thomson Reuters Social Sciences Index and Scopus. Each author will be requested to review at least one other contribution in order to ensure a rigorous system of review is in place.
The timeline for the collection is as follows :
First Draft of Chapters - March2017
Return of Chapters with Editorial Comments - May 2018
Final Chapters Submitted - June 2018
Manuscript Submission - August 2018
