Intersectional Perspectives: Identity, Society, and Culture (IPICS) published by Cardiff University Press


Intersectional Perspectives: Identity, Culture, and Society is an online international interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary peer-reviewed journal which explores the representation and construction of identity, sexuality, race, and gender in social and cultural texts, discourses, practices, and subjectivities. We publish articles that address the themes of identity, sexuality, gender, race, and how they, and other markers of identity, interact and intersect, challenge, and/or question culture and society. We also encourage submissions that cut across racial, national, sexual, class, and (dis)ability divisions, as well as other markers of social difference. Our publication further provides a platform for marginalised voices to be heard, and accordingly, we are interested in receiving submissions that champions these perspectives to be heard.

  • Activism

  • The body

  • Book, film, exhibition, and event reviews
