CFP: Reconsidering Gender, Violence and the State

Journal: Radical History Review
Editors: Lisa Arellano, Amanda Frisken, and Erica Ball
Submission deadline for abstracts: February 1, 2015
Description: »This special issue of Radical History Review invites critical reflection on gendered violence as a historical, intersectional topic of lasting significance. How have conceptions of masculinity and femininity over time informed the persistence of and punishments for gendered violence? What do the archives reveal about the larger structural factors that perpetuate gendered violence? How have feminist and queer organizing efforts to protect and/or avenge victims, further complicated the legal, penal, and legislative efforts to address gendered violence?«
