Call for Proposals to Edit a Special Issue of NWSA Journal
Deadline: March 1, 2007

The National Women's Studies Association Journal invites proposals from
scholars/activists who would like to edit a special issue or cluster issue for
the NWSAJ. Through these special issues, we will continue NWSAJ's tradition of
publishing multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary articles on topics that
are critical to the understanding of women's lives.

While special issues about any topic related to Women's Studies may be
submitted, we are especially looking for scholars and topics that focus on the
following areas:

• Pedagogical and Institutional Issues Related to Women's Studies
• Science, Technology, and Gender
• Gender, Place, and Culture
• Leadership and Activism
• In order to promote exploration of various aspects of women's lives,
we welcome proposals in any area if they explicitly foreground the diversity
of women's experiences. For example, these may include those related to race,
ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, national/international identification,
and ability, but also family membership, professional and community
engagement, access to social services, globalization, and participation in
political spheres.

Proposals should consist of the following information:

I. Proposed theme and rationale, especially as it relates to the topics
noted above
II. Potential outline of key topical areas
III. Proposed call for papers and publicity plan for soliciting articles
IV. Description of peer review process
V. Proposed timeline
VI. List of co-editors with curriculum vitae

Questions should be addressed to Becky Ropers-Huilman, 225-578-2892, or
