Call for Submissions: NEW Peitho Feature: Recoveries and Reconsiderations

The editorial team of Peitho is pleased to announce a new, annual feature of the journal and to issue a call for submissions. We envision that “Recoveries and Reconsiderations” will include the work of multiple contributors, with each contribution limited to 2,500 words, and will serve as a forum for sharing innovative perspectives on and application of existing feminist work, as well an incubator for new feminist research projects.

The deadline for submissions for the first “Recoveries and Reconsiderations,” which we intend to include in Volume 22, No. 3 (March/April 2020), is September 1, 2019.
