Korean Association of Feminist Studies in English Literature

The Korean Association for Feminist Studies in English Literature (KAFSEL) invites papers for Feminist Studies in English Literature (FSEL), volume 28, number 1.

KAFSEL was founded in 1992 to encourage advancements in literary criticism and theory from a feminist perspective while raising awareness of feminism within the academic community. The Association serves as a forum for scholars and graduate students to discuss a wide range of topics in English literature, cultural studies, and social issues as they pertain to feminism. The Association has been active in sponsoring national and international conferences, workshops, publications and various other programs to realize its twofold ambition: to introduce Koreans to the changing currents of feminist studies abroad and to present Korean scholars' interventions in the ongoing debate.

FSEL is published three times a year: April 30, September 30, and December 31. Our journal covers varied subfields of British and American Literature including Asian-American and Asian British Literature. FSEL welcomes manuscripts that develop an original argument in English literature or culture from a feminist/gender perspective. We are interested in papers addressing recent developments in feminist studies from a wide range of national, cultural, social contexts.
