Call for Guest Editors / Ongoing: We invite proposals from both individuals and groups at various career stages and especially encourage students, activists, artists and independent scholars to submit. Guest editing an issue of Feral Feminisms involves developing a Call for Papers, selecting submissions to send to peer review, communicating with contributors and the Managing Editors, and writing an introduction for the issue. We are seeking an array of special issue proposals, which will engage with feminisms in all their manifestations and articulations. We especially encourage submissions that engage with feminisms in relation to:
  • anti-racism, postcolonialism, decolonization, Indigenous studies, and/or critiques of setter colonialism;
  • neoliberalism, corporatism, gentrification, privatization, and militarism; and/or
  • trans studies, queer theory, and critical sexuality studies.
  • We are also particularly interested in issue proposals that envision incorporating literature, poetry, visual art, and film, as each issue consists of written and visual work.

Interested guest editors should submit a proposal of 500 words outlining the proposed theme and vision for the special issue, a title, and the issue’s relevance to the aims and scope of the journal, as well as a 2 page curriculum vitae and/or link to your portfolio.Please direct inquiries and submissions to the Managing Editors of Feral Feminisms (feralfeminisms[at]gmail[dot]com) with the subject heading “Guest Editing Proposal.”
