Description

I am Contributing Editor for Studies in Gender & Sexuality, which is an international, peer-reviewed print journal (also available online), published by Routledge. 
Studies in Gender & Sexuality is one of the leading journals in the transdisciplinary field of gender and sexuality studies. Situated at the interface of psychoanalysis and social/cultural theory, it aims to further our understanding of how we live, theorize and transform genders and sexualities.The journal attracts prominent scholars, clinicians and practitioners from around the globe who focus on the productive tensions between the clinic and the academy, the psychic and the social, theory and practice. Thus it works in the traditions of feminist and postcolonial scholarship, developmental research, and queer, literary and social and cultural studies that have contributed to renewed fascination with those powerfully formative aspects of subjectivity that fall under the rubric of 'gender and sexuality'. Studies in Gender & Sexuality welcomes submissions from a wide range of critical perspectives. It has a particular (though not exclusive) interest in approaches that use psychoanalysis to complicate and deepen our conceptualizations of gender and sexualities. As psychoanalysis increasingly explores the unconscious registration and representation of the social realm, and as critical and cultural studies increasingly consider the enigmatic realm when describing the intersections of sexuality, gender, race, and class, we especially invite papers that tend to the paradox of narrating what cannot be known through its effects on being Other (or alone) among others.The journal speaks equally to academic researchers and scholars, clinicians, and practitioners. It publishes work across the arts and humanities, and the social and natural sciences. Disciplinary perspectives may include: anthropology, critical theory, critical race studies, feminism, gender studies, history, human geography, literature, queer studies, philosophy, psychosocial and psychoanalytic studies, postcolonial studies, science studies, sociology, social theory, and women' studies.Consonant with its goals, Studies in Gender & Sexuality seeks scholarship on gender, sexuality, and their representations which mines the tensions between subjective life and social and political formations. The form of such work may range, from case studies to literary and historical scholarship to critical and theoretical essays to other, inventive methodologies. As clinicians, researchers and scholars who, for the past two decades, have written and practiced at the intersections of feminist, social, cultural and queer theories, as well as clinical psychoanalysis, the Editors are eager for projects in areas of controversy that invite divergent perspectives, new voices, and cross disciplinary encounters.
