Call for Papers: Themed Issue, No. 109, March 2015 – ‘The Politics of Austerity’

Feminist Review is calling for articles and Open Space pieces for a special issue on ‘The Politics of Austerity’. The financial and economic crises of the last four years, together with an ascendance of conservative politics, have had far-reaching material and discursive consequences in regards to deepening social and economic inequalities. As capitalism seeks to reinvent itself in order to survive a crisis of its own making, austerity politics exacerbate divides of class, gender, race, ethnicity and disability at local, regional and global levels. In this special themed issue, we invite contributions that will provide new feminist analyses of the origins, modalities and effects of this contemporary economic, political and social crisis.

Deadline for submissions is 15 December 2013.
