Social mobility and gender - (Trans)national Dynamics of the Present

Social mobility - the possibility of changing one's social position through one's own engagement and through the use of institutional pathways - is an enduring theme of gender studies in social and educational science and meanwhile also in cultural and media studies. In the issue focus, related current challenges to research on social mobility, gender, (trans)national spaces, and intersectional constellations are addressed.

The open section offers analyses and debate contributions on misogyny in the INCEL community, sexting on Instagram, queer feminist social work, and processes of closure/opening and hierarchization in careers of female computer science PhD students.

The issue is completed by reviews of four recent publications in the context of women's and gender studies.
