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 ideas in the sphere of critical knowledge and encourage debates on socially important issues related to the East European region among global scholarly and activist communities.
Feminist Critique publishes papers on a wide range of topics that have, however, strong feminist and/or queer-theoretical positionality. We consider feminism broader than merely debates on women's rights and gender equality, and we see queer theory as more than a discussion on LGBT. We take feminism and queer theory as a tool for critical analysis of the implications of power, knowledge, and politics through which various “others” are constructed and naturalized, and global and local regimes of inequalities are established and maintained.
The editors’ approach is based on multiple interdisciplinary perspectives, including but not limited to decolonial, postcolonial and post-Soviet studies, critical race studies, transgender studies, crip studies, post-human studies, critical study of capitalism, nationalism, citizenship, migration, and militarization.
