In what ways do gender norms, social norms politics, institutions, legal frameworks, and traditions attempt to discipline bodies? How do bodies, and the identities attached to them, resist these processes? How do different identities and tensions manifest in disciplined and resisting bodies?
We welcome contributions from both within and outside the KCL community, in particular those with personal experiences of oppression or who are from/based in the Global South. We also welcome reflections on the methodological, ethical and logistical challenges and opportunities of doing research informed by feminist, embodied, participatory and/or decolonial methodologies.
We invite potential contributors to express their interest by emailing the editorial collective at firstname.lastname@example.org. The e-mail should include “Disciplined and Resistant Bodies” in the subject line and a short description (100-150 words max) of your proposed piece. Please specify whether you are proposing a research-based or reflective piece and provide five key words summarising the key themes covered. Upon acceptance, the lead editors will provide you with details for submission and a timeline for the review and publication of your piece.
This call will receive applications on a rolling basis until Friday 17th of March 2023. We look forward to receiving your submissions!
