This call is for submissions in the form of a paragraph or two proposing a chapter for a volume in the AGR book series focusing on gender and practice. We take a broad approach and welcome a range of papers that may relate to any and all forms of practice including those led by practitioners, academics, and activists.
Submissions should be approximately 150 to 500 words. We welcome academic research papers framed by theory and including methodological details and findings. In order to broaden the scope of this volume of AGR and to highlight practice, we also welcome submissions focused on “praxis” or the engagement, application, evaluation or development of applied research, policy, and practitioner tools for bringing women, men or gender into their work. Specific topics of interest include feminist practices for organizational change, policy-making, gender budgeting, program implementation, monitoring and evaluation, teaching and learning about gender, advocacy work, as well as methods and theories for researching gender in practice. We encourage submissions from a broad range of gender and practice fields including feminist movement-building, education, climate change, health, finance, labor relations, employment, immigration, refugees, human rights, political participation, leadership, policy, media, LGBTQ, children and youth, men and masculinities, aging, tourism, law, gender mainstreaming, violence, peace and security, civil society, humanitarian aid and development, urban development, disaster mitigation, multilateral agencies, and historical or comparative perspectives on any of these.
We seek submissions from all countries and regions, but papers must be in English and all work must be submitted as a Word document. The editors will base their decision to publish on editorial and peer review. Proposals and inquiries should be sent to all three editors: Vicky firstname.lastname@example.org Marcia email@example.com and Kristy firstname.lastname@example.org.
