Focus and Scope

The International Journal of Gender, Sexuality and Law is a new inclusive international journal publishing high quality theoretical and empirical research.  The journal aims to advance the knowledge of legal discourses in gender and lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, heterosexual and queer sexualities.

The journal also aims to be an inclusive space for radical and progressive academic debate from a range of disciplines, including but not limited to, law, sociology, criminology, history, geography, psychology, media, cultural studies, sexuality and gender studies.  The journal welcomes scholarship of an inter-disciplinary nature.

Journal content takes the form of substantive peer-reviewed articles, or reviews, in the form of books, films or web materials.  In addition, the journal will also include from time to time additional content such as interviews on short comment pieces in response to recent developments, although this will not form a permanent part of the journal.  It is expected that the majority of journal content will be provided by academic writers, although the board may invite non-academic writers (for example activists and campaigners) to provide material from time to time.

It is anticipated that the journal will find an international audience (reflected in the editorial board) from a range of disciplines exploring gender, sexuality and law although a range of ‘core’ disciplines can be identified consisting of:  law, criminology, sociology, media/cultural studies  (again reflected in the board makeup and emphasized in the editorial assistant geographical distribution) with a clear emphasis on law.
