Submission Guidelines

Original Teaching Activities (1,500-2,500 words): Instructional activities, assignments, projects or assessment techniques for a single class; unit, module, or semester-long projects; or approaches to an entire course

Submissions should be applicable to a wide range of classes across disciplines and forefront feminist pedagogy by focusing on strategies related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access.

Each submission must include the following information:

  • Title
  • Introduction and Rationale
  • Learning Objectives
  • Explanation
  • Debriefing
  • Assessment
  • References

Critical Commentaries (1,000-1,200 words): Thoughtful reflections on teaching practices and processes. Short editorials offer a first person perspective on feminist pedagogy as a method or philosophy. Narrative expositions allow contributors to share insights and ideas without focusing on a specific classroom activity or assignment.

Book and Media Reviews (500-1,000 words):

Book reviews of pedagogical approaches, theories, and methods. No textbook reviews.

Media reviews of educational resources and documentaries useful for teaching.

We ask that book and media criticism is constructive in nature and largely positive. Reviews should note the scope and purpose of the work and its usefulness to educators, although other information may certainly be included.

Please email the Book and Media Review Editor, Dr. Aubrey Huber, at aubreyahuber@usf.edu with any questions. No unsolicited reviews are accepted.

Call for Special Issue Proposals

Feminist Pedagogy invites scholars to submit proposals for special issues in line with the journal’s focus on higher education teaching strategies and approaches. The purpose of the special issue is to provide a collection of articles on a specific topic of feminist pedagogy that the journal has not covered substantially and has the potential to be of high interest to the readers. We will consider proposals for special issues throughout the year.

If you have further questions, or are ready to submit a proposal, please contact us at .

Special issue proposals may take three forms:

  • revised and extended papers, previously presented at a conference, that focus on areas within the scope of the journal.
  • special issues with a specific theme and an open call for papers. We are happy to post open calls on our journal website.
  • collections that span a single discipline. We are happy to post open calls on our journal website.

Information to be provided in a proposal:

  • 500 word rationale explaining the significance, novelty, and adherence to the scope of the journal of the proposed theme.
  • a list of suggested topics within the theme.
  • a plan for obtaining quality papers.
  • a condensed CV of the proposed Guest Editor(s).
  • list of potential reviewers.
  • a proposed call-for-papers (if needed).
  • a proposed timeline , including submission deadlines and completion of the editorial process.

Selection of proposals based on:

  • overall quality of the proposal.
  • theme is within the scope of the journal.
  • provides significant novelty and complements previously published issues of the journal.
  • focus on intersectionality.
  • likelihood of delivering the final product within the proposed deadline.

CFP: Online Education and the Return to Normal

Over the last year, a global pandemic demanded a move to emergency online education. Collectively, we have seen many successes and failures. While biases about the quality of online education persist, those of us who place questions of power, inequality, and justice at the center of our teaching have come to recognize the revolutionary potential of online education for students, including those from low socioeconomic backgrounds, students with children or other caretaking responsibilities, and disabled students.

As educators return to campus and the “new normal,” questions about our pandemic teaching experiences and how to carry what we learned into the future abound. In this context, Feminist Pedagogy calls for original teaching activities and critical commentaries that reflect on:

  • successes and failures with online course design.
  • asynchronous online course content, activities, and assignments that center feminist pedagogy.
  • how to address marginalization and inequality in the online classroom.
  • activities and assignments that use social media to move beyond the online classroom.

Submissions must follow the journal’s style and requirements. See Instructions for Authors for more information.

Please send all inquiries or submissions to Emily Ryalls (eryalls@calpoly.edu) with “Feminist Pedagogy Special Issue” in the subject heading.

Submission Deadline: Friday, August 6, 2021.
