Feminist Critique: East European Journal of Feminist and Queer Studies (ISSN 2524-2733) is a new scholarly peer-reviewed open-access journal that publishes papers in English, Russian, and Ukrainian. We aim to provide a platform for the exchange of the ideas in the sphere of critical knowledge and encourage debates on socially important issues related to East European region among global scholarly and activist communities.
Feminist Critique publishes papers on the broadest range of topics from scholars that have, however, feminist and/or queer-theoretical positionality. We consider feminism as more than a debate about women's rights and gender equality, and we see queer theory as more than a discussion on LGBT. Feminism and queer theory are taken here as a critical analysis of the implications of power, knowledge, and politics through which various “others” are constructed and naturalized, as well as global and local regimes of inequalities are established and maintained.
The editors’ approach is based on multiple interdisciplinary perspectives, including but not limited to postcolonial and post-Soviet studies, critical race studies, transgender studies, crip studies, post-human studies, critical study of capitalism, nationalism, militarism, citizenship, and migration.
