The Journal of Diversity and Gender Studies (DiGeSt) is a bi-annual, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the intersection of diversity and gender studies. For its 9th issue (vol. 5, issue 1) it welcomes contributions on current research that problematizes gender or/and focuses on issues dealing with diversity in all its manifestations. Submissions may include research from a broad array of disciplines in the arts and humanities, social sciences, psychology and educational sciences. DiGeSt seeks original contributions written in English that present the results of new research, reflect on methodological challenges, engage with new theories or work across disciplines. We are especially interested in contributions that deal with the failure of modern societies to be the ‘open’ and just society they claim or want to be. Societal openness is defined as the condition in which individual life chances or the formation of social boundaries are not determined by social categories such as sex, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, ’race’, social origin, class, age, disability, (chronic) illness ...
In addition to full essays (approximately 6,000 words), DiGeSt is interested in round table contributions, consisting of shorter notes (2,000-4,000 words) by different scholars addressing a topical issue, and book reports linked to ongoing research (What Are You Reading, 300-500 words). (Deadline: 15 September 2017)
All submissions should be sent to Birgit Van Puymbroeck, editor-in-chief, Ghent University, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. See instructions for authors for more details. DiGeSt also welcomes suggestions for guest-edited special issues and invites potential guest editors to send their proposal, with suggested contributors, to the editor-in-chief. All manuscripts are subject to anonymous peer review by knowledgeable scholars and professional practitioners, and if accepted may be subject to revision.
