Kohl is pleased to invite submissions for the fourth issue of Kohl: a Journal for Body and Gender Research, slated for publication in December 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 this issue of Kohl, we are looking for papers centered in feminist, queer, and intersectionality theories that elaborate on the complex connections between bodies and borders, both in the immediate and the symbolic senses. We are interested in understanding bodies and borders as recipients of assigned value and identitarian qualities, which makes transition, trespassing, and movement a source of threat to hegemonic contexts related to nationhood, geopolitics, neoliberalism, and patriarchy. Through understanding the construction of borders and affect, the issue will explore the ways in which bodies are produced, controlled, and commodified.
The deadline for submission is now July 18, 2016.
