Gender and the City
A Special Issue of Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies

This special issue of Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies will explore 
reciprocal relationships between gender and the city. For many decades 
feminist scholars in numerous and diverse fields have studied the importance 
of gender in constituting cities and the role of urban places in 
constructing gender. We want to develop a vigorous cross and 
inter-disciplinary conversation about these relationships of gender and the 
city. We therefore call for papers and creative works that analyze urban 
political, social, economic, and cultural experiences, institutions, and 
representations; the urban environment, including interior and exterior 
spatial arrangements and architecture; and the role of women in this dynamic 
relationship of gender and the urban.

An inter- and multidisciplinary journal, Frontiers welcomes submissions of 
creative works such as artwork, fiction, and poetry, as well as scholarly 
papers. Works must be original, and not published or under consideration for 
publication elsewhere. We encourage those interested in contributing to the 
special issue to email the guest editors.

Submissions should be sent to Frontiers as email attachments to 
frontiers at asu.edu or on disc according to submission guidelines at 
http://www.asu.edu/clas/history/frontiers/submit.html. Author names should 
not appear on the manuscript; list contact information separately.
