Special Issue | Anti-feminist Mobilisations

Since the turn of the millennium, discourses on and mobilisations against critical debates on gender (relations) and gender self-determination have increased. This special issue seeks to address how the phenomenon can be conceptualized, how the increase in corresponding mobilizations and discourses can be explained, and what conclusions can be drawn from this with regard to the change in gender relations and the limits and possibilities of gender policies.

Issue 3|20: Inclusion and intersectionality in educational contexts

Inclusion and intersectionality have been gaining importance as concepts in education and gender studies for years. However, their mutual references are still inadequately researched and little theoretically permeated. The aim of the planned issue is to provide impulses for the treatment of this desideratum and to open up relevant social, educational and cultural discourses.

Issue 2|20: Gender, work, organisation

From a gender research perspective, the current dynamics of global and local developments in work can only be meaningfully analysed if gender, work and organisation are considered as jointly structuring modern societies and therefore as being reciprocally interconnected. The aim of this special issue is to identify central research fields and developments, and to get a glimpse of the future in order to identify political, theoretical and methodological challenges.

Issue 1|20: Gender Orders in Urban and Regional Spaces

Doing gender and doing space are closely interwoven, not only in the 21st century Global North. In order to broaden the focus and, if necessary, to shed light on differences, this issue will focus on city and region with regard to their gender-related contexts of construction, experience and action. The editors hope to receive contributions with multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches.

Special Issue | Parenthood and Families beyond Heteronormativity

Parenthood and families, today, are very diverse. New family concepts such as shared or multiple parenthood have yet to be researched as a (new) empirical phenomena. The special issue invites scholars, especially from the fields of cultural, social, gender and legal studies, to participate in a theoretically and empirically grounded discussion of parenthood, families, and parenting beyond heteronormative kinship relations.

Issue 3|19: Gender, Technology and Politics 4.0

How are power relations and human-technology interactions structured today? Who is being exploited, unsettled or marginalized by them – and what roles do the axes gender, 'race', class and age play in this context? Cui bono was and is the central question of interdisciplinary feminist research, gender research and queer studies, which we intend to mobilize to develop further approaches for feminist theory.

Issue 2|19: Kinship Relations — Gender Relations

In daily contexts we are increasingly confronted with erosion processes and reorganizations of biologically-based family relationships. New biopolitical, social and legal forms of kinship have emerged which require a fundamental redefinition of the rules of gender and relationships. This special issue encourages discussions on new forms of kinship, especially from the perspectives of cultural and social sciences and gender theory.
