ABOUT THE BOOK
The late bell hooks wrote, “to be in the margin is to be part of the whole but outside the main body.” hooks insightfully treated the liberating possibilities of marginal existence. But, of course, the costs and pitfalls of being in the margins often present themselves in everything from the latest news to the realities of the everyday. Women and Gender Studies; Contemporary Trends and Perspectives will focus on what the margins of gender look like now. What are the trends in activism and scholarship that express change either in the margins or in a response from the hegemony? Are there solutions and movements that have been particularly effective in gaining recognition of marginal existence or effecting positive, real-world change? Are there powerful coalitions that have formed to bring the margins into focus?
We welcome submissions from myriad disciplines and global perspectives, but prospective contributors might treat one or more of the following macro subjects while attending to race, class, gender identity, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, and so on:
+ Intersectionality today
+ Reproductive rights: international and local perspectives/tactics
+ Activism: latest movements and effects
