Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2024

Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies was founded in Boulder, Colorado, in 1975 and was housed in the Women's Studies department at the University of Colorado-Boulder. Frontiers began as a volunteer-based organization to bridge academic and community-based feminist knowledge and corresponded with a local movement among students, faculty, and community members to develop a women's studies program at the University of Colorado. Using a range of informal tactics, the Frontiers editorial collective established itself as "an incorporated legal nonentity," a strategic move aimed at circumventing the heteropatriarchal administrative tactics that had hindered the formation of women's studies programs in universities across the U.S.

Eva Hayward (2022) inquires, “Can trans mean anything to ecology? If so, what?” The guest editors of this issue of Transgender Studies Quarterly offer Hayward’s question as an invitation to artists, activists, and scholars to consider the possibilities of combining trans* analytics and undisciplined environmental and ecological thinking. The issue follows the Queer & Trans Ecologies Symposium that took place at the University of Minnesota in spring 2023.

Teaching Critical Race Theory

updated: 
Friday, June 9, 2023 - 7:02am
Celia Carlson / PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2023

This panel queries the notion of “critical race theory” and how to teach racial issues whether or not one is specifically a “critical race theorist.” This topic is especially urgent during a time of right-wing “anti-‘woke’” agendas that seek to erase the very concept of race from public education and to attack as “divisive” any effort to offer a historically informed and rigorous accounting for ongoing inequality and racism in American society. Race is perversely both denied and invoked as that topic which is too disturbing to teach and yet absolutely necessary for the maintenance of normative political structures.

What does art do for us? How do we make meaningful art? How does climate change affect our art-making? How do we perform apocalypse? How do we perform care?

On August 30, 2021, the United States withdrew its military forces from Afghanistan, marking the end of the longest war in American history. During the twenty years of the Global War on Terror, between two and three million American service members engaged in post 9-11 war operations. American support for veterans and their families during this period was remarkably high. Beginning in 2010, Admiral Michael Mullen, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, referred to American public and private support for veterans as a “Sea of Goodwill.”
