Australian feminist studies special themed issue on fashion

Australian Feminist Studies (Routledge/Taylor & Francis) is seeking contributions for a 2018 special themed issue on FASHION to be edited by Maryanne Dever and Lisa Adkins with guest co-editor Ilya Parkins.
They are keenly interested in receiving articles that demonstrate how intersectional, feminist theoretical tools support new analyses of fashion, more than articles simply focusing on the relationship between feminism and fashion.
Original articles may be up to 8,000 words in length. For this issue shorter thematic pieces (up to 5,000 words) may be considered for the journal’s Feminist Debates, while pieces covering novel projects or new resources for thinking about feminism’s engagement with fashion may also be considered for the Research Notes section. Proposals covering any discipline or national domain are welcome.
Prospective contributors are encouraged to review the journal’s aims and scope and instructions for authors prior to making a submission. All submissions will be peer-reviewed as per the journal’s policy.
Topics may include (but are not limited to):
  •  New political economies of fashion
  •  Modest fashion
  •  Rethinking production
  •  Subcultural fashion
  •  New dandyisms
  •  Cultural appropriation
  •  Fashion and new femininities
