The Women's Studies Journal seeks contributions for a forthcoming special issue on Women and the Nation at War (to be released June 2016 (issue 30.1)).
The issue aims to provide balance to the current fervour surrounding the centennial of World War One by inviting feminist critique of war. To these ends articles are invited which provide feminist reflection, contemporary critique, or historical (re)assessment of women and war. Of particular interest are submissions which provide theoretical, philosophical, or empirical critique of warfare and its contemporary impact on women, particularly within Aotearoa/New Zealand and the Pacific, also submissions which engage in historical critique of women's experiences of World War One and World War Two.
Submission deadline 30 June 2015.
