We are seeking essays of about 5000-7000 words for a special issue of Settler Colonial Studies focused on gender.  We are interested in individual readings of settler texts through a gendered lens, in historical or cultural studies treatments ofsettlers and gender, or in more theoretical pieces that examine gender and settler colonialism.  We are especially interested in pieces that read masculinity, liminal/trans gendered states, or genders in comparison, or that analyze gender in a new way.   

Please contact Rebecca Weaver-Hightower at by October 28 to send an abstract of 250 words for consideration.  Full essays would be due by November 30.
