Studies in Gender and Sexuality : An Interdisciplinary Journal - Competition for the best previously unpublished essay on gender and/or sexuality - Submissions Deadline : September 1, 2017.
Studies in Gender and Sexuality, thanks to the Alexandra and Martin Symonds Foundation, invites submissions to its annual competition for the best previously unpublished essay on gender and/or sexuality. We welcome submission from early career or established professionals.
Studies in Gender and Sexuality is one of the leading journals in the transdisciplinary field of gender and sexuality studies. Situated at the interface of psychoanalysis and social/cultural theory, it aims to further our understanding of how we live, theorize and transform genders and sexualities.
The essay may engage clinical, critical, empirical or theoretical questions that relate to gender and/or sexuality. The writer may be new or seasoned. The topic may be cutting-edge or venerable. We welcome essays that vary in form and content, including transdisciplinary work. Our only criteria is that the essay engage psychoanalytic theory in addition to other forms of critical inquiry.
Submissions will be judged by members of the Editorial Board. The winner will receive $500, and the essay will be published in SGS.
Now in its 18th year, SGS has continued to publish a wide range of critical perspectives on gender and sexuality. It has a particular (though not exclusive) interest in approaches that use psychoanalysis to complicate and deepen our conceptualizations of gender and sexualities, whilst using theories of gender and sexuality to complicate psychoanalytic theory and practice. In doing so, SGS opens debates about the tensions between subjective and affective life and social and political formations.
