GENDER,CULTURE AND SOCIETY.
Indian Book Centre. New Delhi.
Contributions are invited for this new journal to be launched in 1995.
The boundaries of feminism have implications for culture and society, its
praxis, paradigms of thought and institutional complexities. The
construction of identity concerning women in non- metropolitan countries
are fraught with any number of epistemological difficulties. There are
complexities of class, subjectivity,and historical cultural development.
How these experiences structure the everyday reality of women's lives can
be understood from a number of perspectives,
vis. anthropology, psychoanalysis, philosophy, critism, post-colonial
discourse, and subaltern studies.
The journal hopes to provide a meeting space for scholars, writers and
students of all theoretical persuations to dialouge and discuss new ideas
in interdisciplinary scope. One issue per year will be published.
Longer works of 40,000 words plus will be considered for publication in a
companion series. (Naari: Series in Gender Studies.)
Contributions are to be submitted on Mac or Dos? IBM disc; innovative and
to a maximum of 5000 words. Deadline for first issue papers is 31st
