full name / name of organization: 
Johanna Maria Eleanor Green



eSharp is an award-winning online journal for postgraduates in the fields of arts, humanities, social sciences and education. It is peer-reviewed, based at the University of Glasgow and aims to provide a critical but supportive entry into the world of academic publishing.

The first eight issues are currently online at www.sharp.arts.gla.ac.uk and we are now looking for submissions for the ninth edition to be launched in Spring 2007. We welcome papers from postgraduates working in all areas of the social sciences, arts, humanities and education.

The theme of the ninth edition is 'Gender: Power and Authority'. Following the AHRC sponsored conference Return to Gender, held at the University of Glasgow in November 2006, this issue will look at ways in which gender has been marginalised/reversed/empowered in past, present and even future society. Have gender distinctions become obsolete in modern society? How does one gender gain power over another? Is there such a thing as a dominant gender?

Topics may include but are not limited to:

· Masculinity and Femininity
· Politics of Gender
· Sex and Power
· Androgyny/Transgender
· (Gendered) Relationships/Marriage/Partnerships
· Image, Identity and the Body
· Discrimination
· Language and Gender
· Gender and the Media
· Gender and Society

Articles of a maximum of 4,500-5,000 words must be submitted by 14th March 2007 (extended deadline). Please ensure that you accompany your submission with an abstract of 200-250 words and a list of 3-5 keywords for meta tagging. For a full list of guidelines and our style sheet please see

Please send your article (both abstract and full paper) to sharp_at_arts.gla.ac.uk. Informal inquiries in advance are welcome to the same address.
