Call for Papers: Reproductive Justice

Frontiers: A Journal of Women’s Studies is accepting submissions for a special issue to be devoted to the topic of reproductive technologies and reproductive justice. The journal editors are seeking interdisciplinary articles to commemorate Roe v. Wade:

“In commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the legacies of that decision, we welcome scholarly and creative works that analyze the contested terrains of reproduction in local, national, or transnational contexts. We are especially interested in the intersections between varied technologies to regulate, manage, or facilitate reproduction (e.g. abortion, contraception, surrogacy, population control, reproductive health, adoption), and claims for reproductive justice. We encourage submissions that conceptualize reproductive issues in broad terms, and which further the journal’s commitment to scholarship on women of color, third world and transnational women’s movements, and gender and race.”

The submission deadline for the special issue is June 15, 2012. For more information, see the posting at Research Raven.
