Call for papers: Women and the Nation at War

The Women’s Studies Journal of Aotearoa/New Zealand seeks contributions for a forthcoming special issue on Women and the Nation at War.

The issue aims to provide balance to the current fervour surrounding the centennial of World War One by inviting feminist critique of war. To these ends articles are invited which provide feminist reflection, contemporary critique, or historical (re)assessment of women and war. Of particular interest are submissions which provide theoretical, philosophical, or empirical critique of warfare and its contemporary impact on women, particularly within Aotearoa/New Zealand and the Pacific, also submissions which engage in historical critique of women’s experiences of World War One and World War Two.

The due date for submissions for this special issue is 30 June 2015. The special issue will be released June 2016 (issue 30.1). Submissions should be approximately 8000 words in length. Should significant overlap between submissions occur, the editor reserves the right to decline articles as necessary to achieve a breadth of content.

Manuscripts should be emailed directly to the editor for this issue:
