Call for papers: The Geographies of Bodies and Borders

The fourth issue of Kohl: a Journal for Body and Gender Research is calling for papers to be published in December 2016. In addition to research articles, it welcomes opinion pieces, testimonies, essays, interviews, literary pieces, other texts, and visual and audiovisual material. The deadline is July 4, 2016.

For this issue of Kohl, the emphasis is on papers centered in feminist, queer, and intersectionality theories that elaborate on the complex connections between bodies and borders, both in the immediate and the symbolic senses. We are interested in understanding bodies and borders as recipients of assigned value and identitarian qualities, which makes transition, trespassing, and movement a source of threat to hegemonic contexts related to nationhood, geopolitics, neoliberalism, and patriarchy. Through understanding the construction of borders and affect, the issue will explore the ways in which bodies are produced, controlled, and commodified.
