Call for Reviews
*Submit your Review* We always welcome reviews on recent releases in Gender Studies! Submitted reviews should conform to current MLA Style (8th edition), have numbered paragraphs, and should be between 750 and 1,000 words in length. Please note that the reviewed releases ought to be no older than 24 months. In most cases, we are able to secure a review copy for contributors. Gender Forum's ongoing review section also invites critical reviews (750-1000 words) of films (from narrative feature to short films to documentaries), TV and web series, music videos, or any kind of (audio-)visual media with a strong relation to gender, feminist, and queer issues. Please not that your review should work as a critical inquiry and analysis.
gender forum is an online, peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to the discussion of gender issues. As an electronic journal, gender forum offers a free-of-charge platform for the discussion of gender-related topics in the fields of literary and cultural production, media and the arts as well as politics, the natural sciences, medicine, the law, religion, and philosophy. Inaugurated by Prof. Dr. Beate Neumeier in 2002, the quarterly issues of the journal have focused on a multitude of questions from different theoretical perspectives of feminist criticism, queer theory, and masculinity studies. gender forum also includes reviews and occasionally interviews, fictional pieces, and poetry with a gender studies angle.
In keeping with the journal’s scope, all submissions must have a strong gender/feminist/queer studies component. Review requests/applications can be sent to gender-forum(at)uni-koeln.de at any time (deadlines for reviews will be negotiated individually). We strongly encourage graduate students to apply for our review section!
