Journal of Interdisciplinary Feminist Thought



The Journal of Interdisciplinary Feminist Thought invites contributions for its next issue: "Immigration: Women as Victims and Voices of Change." Deadline: May 1, 2014 Although women account for more than half the legal immigrant population in the United States today, too little attention has been paid to the social and legal issues confronting them on a daily basis. Issues of employment, education, health care, and family, combined with fears of exploitation, discrimination, and legal protection from violence, are among the work that contemporary scholars are exploring today. These are the issues we wish to address in the upcoming issue of JIFT. In addition, the editors are looking for studies that identify the contributions that immigrant women have made to the economic, social, and cultural fabric of society.
