Over the past several decades, scholarship in a variety of disciplines has challenged the “wave” model of feminism. Inspired by the 2020 centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment, this special issue seeks to rethink “first wave” feminisms in a heterogeneous and expansive way—by pushing geographic, chronological, and ideological boundaries and by broadening the definition of whom we usually think of as early feminists. While contributions on the Nineteenth Amendment in the United States, and the suffrage movement worldwide, are welcome, we also encourage submissions that consider early manifestations of feminism and feminist movements in broad and global terms. Scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to submit their work.

Queer (In)visibilities & the Perils of Inclusion
Digital Humanities is an emerging field of study that makes an interface between the application of the digital tools and methods to the study of humanities. It’s an interdisciplinary field which utilizes the computational methods and techniques to make significant interventions in the study and research in humanities and social sciences. In recent years, this interdisciplinary study has made remarkable changes in the tradition modes of research, and pedagogy and this has facilitated a kind of inquiry that has never been undertaken in the field of humanities.
