Call for Submissions


Intersections, the graduate student group of the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department of The Ohio State University, invites you to submit to our journal, There is No Hierarchy of Journals: Intersectional Feminist Perspectives. The journal curates a digital collection of essays and art to share research and corresponding teaching tools with students of feminist studies and their instructors. We welcome submissions from emerging scholars in the field of their feminist study in traditional text, visual art, and poetic formats. To guide self-teaching and instructors less familiar with our specific areas of interest, we request a teaching artifact to accompany all submissions. Teaching artifacts should be a one-page or shorter description of a learning activity for classroom or community contexts. Examples include guided discussion for in-person or online formats, concept mapping, art, community projects, and engagement with external media. 

We seek articles, art, and poetry on the theme of YOUR feminist research. Submissions should speak to undergraduate feminist scholars and community members with a working knowledge of intersectional feminist theory and principles. Similarly, a feminist grounding implies that essays should not be phobic in nature and any engaging as such will not be included. The central criterion is that submissions are presented in a way that welcomes new scholars. Text submission should be between 2,000-3,000 words and art should fit on six pages or less. We are especially interested in interactive submissions that include perspectives on current social issues, links to external media, and/or the author’s/artist’s own visual art (including photography).

Please email all submissions to Submissions will include two files: 1) separate cover page and 2) manuscript and teaching artifact. The cover page should include 1) the author’s name, 2) short (100 words) bio, 3) title of the work, and 4) abstract/description of the work (150 words). The manuscript file name should correspond to the title of the work. In order to facilitate anonymous review, the author’s name should not appear on the manuscript and all references in the text and notes that might identify the author should be removed and cited on a separate page.
