New Journal: International Journal for Intersectional Feminist Studies

The International Journal for Intersectional Feminist Studies (IJFIFS) is a half-yearly peer-reviewed academic journal produced by the Project Monma research centre. It aims to publish research, reports, and literature reviews relating to intersectional feminist theory and/or relevant to issues of gender broadly (the way that gender is represented, codified, consumed, or challenged within certain contexts, for example). IJFIFS is designed to be an interdisciplinary journal, and it encourages young scholars and students within all relevant disciplines to submit their work for publication.
