Submit a Manuscript to the Journal
Australian Feminist Studies
For a Special Issue on
15 September 2022
31 January 2023
Expressions of interest are sought for contributions to a planned special issue of Australian Feminist Studies (Routledge/Taylor & Francis) devoted to the topic of ‘Wealth’. We anticipate publishing wide-ranging sets of ideas that capture the current and emerging challenges and opportunities for feminist thinkers examining aspects of wealth in our present moment.
The past four decades have seen accelerating inequalities of wealth. At the same time, we are transfixed by popular cultural narratives of wealth and its inter-generational transmission (e.g. ‘Succession’) and by what wealth looks and feels like. How should feminist thinkers approach this conjuncture? What would a contemporary feminist theory of wealth and wealth distribution look like and what challenges do rising wealth inequalities pose for existing feminist analyses?
Potential areas for consideration include but are not limited to:
- How and why is wealth a feminist issue?
- What might feminist approaches to wealth look like?
- What social and political challenges should be priorities for feminist researchers thinking about wealth?
- Wealth, feminist thinking and the global South
- Wealth distributions and feminist analyses
- The aesthetics of wealth
- The emergence of financial feminism and asset feminism
- Feminist debates on housing wealth, superannuation and tax, including new and alternative models for wealth taxation
- How can new feminist engagements with wealth incorporate multiple perspectives and draw from diverse traditions of feminist knowledge?
- Wealth and speculative futures
- New feminist engagements around the emotional and affective dimensions of wealth
- Feminist inspired alternative economies
- New feminist analyses of wealth inequalities
- The home and its ‘wealth effects’
- New feminist engagements with wealth in film and literature
- The ends of the asset economy?
We welcome contributions from scholars in any discipline, including sociology, social policy, economics, politics, anthropology, media, cultural studies, film, and literature. Contributions can be between 6,000 words and 8,000 words for research articles. Shorter polemical pieces up to 5,000 words can be considered for the ‘Feminist Debates’ section. Co-authored and multiple-voiced pieces are welcome.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed as per the journal’s policies.
Your expression of interest (300 wds max) should indicate what questions or ideas you wish to address, the proposed length of your submission, and your key words. Dot points can be used. Please include contact details and a 2-line bio note.
Expressions of interest are due on 15 Sept 2022. EOIs should be emailed as word documents. Invitations to submit will be issued shortly after this date.
Full submissions will be due on 31 January 2023. Inquiries and EOIs should be emailed to: [email protected]
