Call For Papers: Beyond Victims and Savages: the Complexities of Violence, Resistance, and Pleasure

KohlWe are pleased to invite submissions for the third issue of Kohl: a Journal for Body and Gender Research, slated for publication in June 2016. Young activists, independent researchers, graduate students and fresh graduates are particularly encouraged to apply. We also welcome submissions from seminal contributors in the field.

For the third issue of Kohl, we are looking for papers that problematize the concept of violence, and account for its intersection with gendered socioeconomic and institutionalized discrimination. We are also interested in understanding/historicizing pain and resistance, and liberating them from the violence paradigm, especially as they happen in non-hegemonic contexts. Often, discourses of violence mitigate issues of pleasure, self-defense, and self-care, which can also be framed as resistance beyond organized movements by occupying alternative spaces within violent environments.

The deadline for submission is January 28, 2016.
