Our committee is accepting academic works from undergraduate and current graduate students, that engage critically with issues of gender/gender-under-erasure, sexuality, race, class and dis/ability.

Included below are the instructions for submission:


Sprinkle, a peer-reviewed undergraduate Feminist and Queer Studies journal originally conceived in 2007 as a collection of student works from the McGill Sexual Diversity Studies course, seeks academic submissions for the Spring 2014 edition. Papers should be no more than 3000 words in length and show critical engagement with issues of gender and sexuality from all disciplines. We encourage submissions to explore the intersection of gender and sexuality with other social identities (race, class, dis/ability, etc.), however this is not required. We may also consider a small number of creative submissions (i.e. poetry, short stories, etc.).

Please send submissions via e-mail as .docx, .doc, .pdf or .rtf attachments to sprinkle.journal@gmail.com with the subject heading: "Submission for Spring 2014 Issue." In the email please include the following information: name as you would like it to appear in the journal; email address; institution of study, and a 100 word bio. Your essays should be 'blinded' meaning that they should contain no information that would identify the author. Papers must be submitted by March 24th.

Sprinkle looks forward to diverse and innovative submissions!

What is Sprinkle?

Now housed online through a partnership with The Paulo and Nita Freire International Project for Critical Pedagogy, the editors of the 2014 edition of Sprinkle are affiliated with California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo, and seek to continue to produce a queer-positive, critical journal that works to challenge the normative experiences that are often privileged within our society. In this vein, we hope to draw attention to queer history and experience as well as other issues of gender and sexuality, subjects not often addressed within classroom curricula. This journal hopes to draw from and appeal to a wide audience, and people of numerous identities and backgrounds. Sprinkle aims to lend legitimacy to the thoughts and experiences of young people, and produce an engaging publication. For more info visit: http://freireproject.org/sprinkle
