CFS: Reproductive Technologies & Justice (Frontiers)

Call for Papers:A Special Issue of Frontiers on Reproductive Technologies and Reproductive Justice

Frontiers: A Journal of Women’s Studies invites submissions for a special issue on reproductive technologies and reproductive justice. In commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the legacies of that decision, we welcome scholarly and creative works that analyze the contested terrains of reproduction in local, national, or transnational contexts. We are especially interested in the intersections between varied technologies to regulate, manage, or facilitate reproduction (e.g. abortion, contraception, surrogacy, population control, reproductive health, adoption), and claims for reproductive justice. We encourage submissions that conceptualize reproductive issues in broad terms, and which further the journal’s commitment to scholarship on women of color, third world and transnational women’s movements, and gender and race.

An inter- and multidisciplinary journal, Frontiers welcomes submissions of creative works such as artwork, fiction, and poetry, as well as scholarly papers. Works must be original, and not published or under consideration for publication elsewhere. For submission guidelines, please consult the websites sponsored by the University of Nebraska Press and Arizona State University, where Frontiers is currently housed:,673226.aspx

All special issue submissions and questions should be directed to:  The guest editor for this special issue, Mytheli Sreenivas, and the new-editors of Frontiers, Guisela Latorre and Judy Tzu-Chun Wu also can be reached at the following address:

Editors of Frontiers, Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Ohio State University, 286 University Hall, 230 North Oval Mall, Columbus, OH 43210

Submission Date for Special Issue: June 15, 2012. All other submissions, not related to the Special Issue, should be directed to Arizona State University before May 11, 2012. After May 12, 2012, all submissions should be sent to Ohio State University.
