The Rocky Mountain Review, the peer-reviewed journal of the Rocky Mountain Language Association, invites articles for a special issue on the topic of "space and gender." We are seeking scholarship that addresses the question of how the theorization of space informs gender studies, and how gender concerns enrich spatial studies, particularly as they intersect with literary, cultural, film, and pedagogical research. Essays may respond to, but are not limited to, the following questions: How do women, including women of color, conceptualize space, particularly hybrid, border, and marginal spaces, against a backdrop of increasing globalization in the 21st century? In turn, in what ways might spatial studies inform postcolonial and minority women's writing and film to negotiate the gendering of space that is a legacy of colonial conquest? How can spatial studies contribute to ecofeminism in formulating environmentally sensible principles? How do theorizations of space and spatiality influence teaching practices in the 21st-century literature or film studies classroom?

Please refer to our guidelines for submission for complete details. All manuscripts should be received by January 12, 2014 to be considered for this issue.
