Apologies for cross-postings, but we're trying to reach as great a

invite you to submit your work for our next 'open topic' issues: July
2007 and January 2008.

/thirdspace/ is a peer-reviewed journal, offering work in English and
French, that aims to present the best in scholarship on feminist theory
and culture.

Founded in 2000, our original mandate was to serve 'emerging feminist
scholars' publishing feminist work, broadly conceived. After six years
of successful publishing, we have expanded our mandate to include
scholars of all ranks and experience, as well as refined our focus to
attract the best scholarship in feminist theoretical studies.

Our goal remains to produce a top-quality journal that demonstrates a
wide range of applications for feminist theory and methodology. We
envision a broad definition of studies in "feminist theory and culture"
which can include, but are not limited to: development and applications
of feminist theory in any field; cultures of feminism and feminist
movement (including academia); and feminist cultural studies.

affiliation, and especially encourage submissions from emerging feminist
scholars, including graduate students.

--"It is dangerous fantasy to believe that if 'they' can be identified and labeled, and then treated or punished, the nation will be somehow purified, made safer for the rest of us.... When in fact we need to examine poverty, racism, the paucity of meaningful work at a living wage, the lack of access to day care, antifeminism, and a host of other problems, let us not be diverted by 'bad' mothers."
