Run by the Women and Gender Studies Student Union at the University of Toronto Intersections is Canada’s first peer-reviewed national undergraduate journal that is dedicated to studying issues of gender, sexuality, race and social justice. The mandate of this national undergraduate journal is to nuance the entangled processes of (hetero)sexism, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, colonialism etc. and their various manifestations in the material and discursive world.
Intersections welcomes submissions from a variety of programs and departments, including but not limited to: African Studies – Anthropology – Art – Comparative Literature – Caribbean Studies – Culture & Civilization Studies – Equity Studies – Performance Studies – Environmental Studies – Film Studies – Gender Studies – History – Geography – Linguistics – Psychology – Religion – Sexuality Studies– Sociology
The journal encourages its authors to employ transnational feminist theories and welcomes submissions that investigate and/or fall under any of following:
- Gender, sexuality and queer studies
- Political economy and critical development studies
- Feminist studies of technology, science, environment and biomedicine; and
- Feminist cultural studies
Intersections will not accept submissions that do not employ anti-oppressive frameworks.
