AFS call for papers for a themed issue on Germaine Greer

No figure in Australian feminism has been as influential or as exciting as Germaine Greer. The recent opening of her archive at the University of Melbourne has only heightened interest in research and reflection on her life and career. Australian Feminist Studies plans to publish a themed issue focusing on Germaine Greer in 2016.

AFS is seeking contributions in the form of original articles (up to 8,000 words) that offer new insights on any aspect of Greer’s writing or her career. We would particularly welcome submissions focusing on:

  • newly available archival sources

  • Greer as publisher and literary scholar

  • reflections on Greer’s career in journalism and/or television

  • Greer as feminist fashion icon

  • Greer in/and the media

  • Greer as environmental activist

Shorter thematic pieces (up to 5,000 words) may be considered for the journal’s Feminist Debates and Reflections section.

Abstracts (500 words) should be submitted by 15 June 2015 with accepted articles due 15 November 2015. Inquiries and submissions can be sent to

Submissions should be formatted according to the journal’s house style. All submissions will be peer-reviewed as per the journal’s policy.
