CFS: Gender/Sex, Mixed Methods (J of Multiple Res Approaches)

Journal of Multiple Research Approaches

Special issue on: Mixed Methods in Genders & Sexualities Research

Deadline for Papers: 1st March 2013

Over the past three decades, the international explosion of scholarship in the areas of gender, sex and sexuality has created new fields of inquiry and approaches in the cross-disciplinary fields of the humanities, social, and natural sciences. Innovative methodologies have emerged to address the thorny issues of researching identity and subject positions, practices and activities. Yet despite this, there is still much to be done in the development of mixed methods approaches to the study of gender, sex and sexuality, in addition to further attention being required as to what constitutes best practice in terms of qualitative and quantitative research in the field.

This issue invites work that examines ‘methodology’ in gender, sex and sexualities research. We seek essays that elaborate experiences of both theoretical and empirical approaches to research on gender, sex and sexuality. Studies that have employed qualitative and quantitative, as well as mixed method approaches are welcome. We are particularly interested in essays that expose the challenges, emerging issues and solutions in combining innovative approaches and evaluation programs. Work may be submitted in the format of a case study, literature review, research note or research article.

We invite abstracts from all disciplinary and artistic homes including but not limited to: critical theories of race/gender/sexuality, biomedical fields, literary studies, technology and science studies, legal studies, the social sciences, and the arts and humanities generally. Manuscripts within the scope of the special issue should follow APA 6th edn style, be 6000-8000 words, and submitted for double blind peer review according to the journal’s Author Guidelines at:

CFS: Culture, Health & Sexuality

Culture, Health & Sexuality is a leading international environment for the publication of papers in the fields of culture, health and sexuality.

The journal is broad and multi-disciplinary in focus, publishing papers on methodology as well as those that are empirical and conceptual in nature. It offers a forum for debates on policy and practice, adopting a practitioner focus where appropriate. Culture, Health and Sexuality takes a genuinely international stance in its consideration of key issues and concerns, as reflected in the composition of the editorial board. More specifically, the journal aims to:

  • Provide an international forum for the analysis of culture and health, health beliefs and systems, social structures and divisions, and the implications for these for sexual health, and individual, collective and community wellbeing.
  • Provide an environment in which the policy and practice implications of research in the fields of culture and health, and culture and reproductive and sexual health, can be considered.
  • Offer a setting for critical scholarly debate about how best to analyse the cultural dimensions of health issues in general, and reproductive and sexual health issues in particular.

CFP: Berkshire Conference on Women’s History

Berkshire Conference on Women’s History: “GENERATIONS: Exploring Race, Sexuality, and Labor across Time and Space” (June 9-12, 2011, University of Massachusetts, Amherst)

Proposals due March 1, 2010

Complete information at:

The Berkshire Conference of Women Historians is holding its next conference at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst on June 9-12, 2011. 2011 marks the 15th Berkshire Conference on Women’s History and the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, which was first celebrated in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland and is now honored by more than sixty countries around the globe. The choice of “Generations” reflects this transnational intellectual, political, and organizational heritage as well as a desire to explore related questions such as:

• How have women’s generative experiences – from production and reproduction to creativity and alliance building – varied across time and space? How have these been appropriated and represented by contemporaries and scholars alike?

• What are the politics of “generation”? Who is encouraged? Who is condemned or discouraged? How has this changed over time?

• Is a global perspective compatible with generational (in the genealogical sense) approaches to the past that tend to reinscribe national/regional/racial boundaries?

• What challenges do historians of women, gender, and sexuality face as these fields and their practitioners mature?

To engender further, open-ended engagement with these and other issues, the 2011 conference will include workshops dedicated to discussing precirculated papers on questions and problems (epistemological, methodological, substantive) provoked by the notion of “Generations.”

The process for submitting and vetting papers and panels has changed substantially from previous years, so please read the instructions carefully. To encourage transnational discussions, panels will be principally organized along thematic rather than national lines and therefore proposals will be vetted by a transnational group of scholars with expertise in a particular thematic, rather than geographic, field. All proposals must be directed to ONE of the following subcommittees and should be submitted electronically.

Please list a second choice for the subcommittee to vet your proposal but do not submit to more than one subcommittee. Instructions for submission will be posted on the Berkshire Conference website ( by November 1, 2009. Preference will be given to discussions of any topic across national boundaries and to work that addresses sexuality, race, and labor in any context, with special consideration for pre-modern (ancient, medieval, early modern) periods. However, unattached papers and proposals that fall within a single nation/region will also be given full consideration. As a forum dedicated to encouraging innovative, interdisciplinary scholarship and transnational conversation, the Berkshire conference continues to encourage submissions from graduate students, international scholars, independent scholars, filmmakers, and to welcome a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Paper abstracts should be no longer than 250 words; panel (2-3 papers and a comment), roundtable (3 or more short papers) and workshop (1-2 precirculated papers) proposals should also include a summary abstract of no more than 500 words. Each submission must include the cover form and a short cv for each presenter. If you have questions about the most appropriate subcommittee for your proposal or problems with electronic submission, please direct them to Jennifer Spear ( ).
