Religion and Gender is the first refereed online international journal dedicated to the systematic study of gender and religion in an interdisciplinary perspective. The journal explores the relation, confrontation and intersection of gender and religion, taking into account the multiple and changing manifestations of religion in diverse social and cultural contexts. It analyses and reflects critically on gender in its interpretative and imaginative dimensions and as a fundamental principle of social ordering. It seeks to investigate gender at the intersection of feminist, sexuality, queer, masculinity and diversity studies.
As an academic journal, Religion and Gender aims to publish high level contributions from the humanities and from qualitative and conceptual studies in the social sciences. It wants to focus in particular on contemporary debates and topics of emerging interest. Albeit international in scope, the journal takes seriously that it is situated in contemporary Europe. It seeks to reflect on this position, particularly from postmodern, postcolonial, and post secular perspectives.
Religion and Gender maintains the strictest demand for highest academic quality. Quality control features at the top of the priorities for the dedicated editorial team. This commitment to academic excellence is reflected in the journal’s strict and demanding multi-round peer review, high editorial involvement and a relatively low acceptance rate. Religion and Gender seeks to attract only internationally excellent and world-leading research.
The journal appears twice a year, each issue focussing on a specific theme. Scholars are welcome to submit articles for review or propose topical issues under their guest editorship. Renowned scholars may be invited to submit keynote articles on specific topics. In particular, we welcome contributions which advance, broaden and innovate discourses, debates and paradigms by virtue of their originality, rigour and/or counter-hegemonial perspectives. All articles go through a two-phase process of rigorous peer review.
The editorial board of Religion and Gender also welcomes book reviews, comments, literature surveys, concise discussion papers, and announcements of academic events, academic networks, new publications, and relevant mailing lists.
