The editorial staff of Race/Ethnicity: Multidisciplinary Global Contexts invites submissions for the first issue of its fourth volume that will focus on “Intersections of Race and Gender.” Race/Ethnicity uses a classic piece as a point of departure for treatments of critical issues within the field of race and ethnic studies. While the classic piece establishes the thematic parameters of each issue, authors are under no obligation to actively engage the arguments posed by that work.
The first issue of Volume 4 explores the multiple points where race and gender intersect across the globe, the range of consequences that meets those intersections, and the dynamics that occur at those intersections. The issue opens with “Movimientos de rebeldi y las culturas que traicionan,” from Gloria Anzuldúa’s Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza , in which the author traces her personal experiences of being caught between two cultures and yet an alien in both, with the understanding that the work of the 21st century will be about the coming together of diverse cultures.
Our focus on race and gender recognizes that there are numerous ways in which racialized and gendered identities intersect and that their intersection is often influenced by a variety of other cultural factors. We welcome essays that explore intersections and impacts from perspectives across the world. We also welcome the viewpoints of activists, advocates, researchers, and other practitioners working in the field.
Topics of inquiry may include, but are not limited to, the following:
* How do race and gender intersect with each other to mediate access to social opportunity?
