New East European Journal of Feminist and Queer Studies "Feminist Critique" is Launched
Krytyka Institute and Center For Culture Anthropology Studies are glad to announce the launch of the new scholarly peer-reviewed open-access journal Feminist Critique: East European Journal of Feminist and Queer Studies. The journal 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 debate about women's rights and gender equality, and we see queer theory as more than 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, citizenship, migration, and issues of belonging.
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 in English, Russian, and Ukrainian. Except of peer-reviewed articles Feminist Critique will also publish translations into Ukrainian of feminist and queer theoretical articles, interviews with famouse contemporary scholars, as well as feminist and queer blogs on important contemporary issues.
