sprinkle: an undergraduate journal of feminist and queer studies

Aims & Scope

sprinkle is committed to publishing scholarly, activist, and creative work produced by undergraduate and early-career graduate students that fosters and supports ongoing efforts toward liberation from white supremacist cisheteropatriarchal tyranny. In particular, one of the primary and ongoing goals of sprinkle is to amplify the voices of feminist and queer scholarship at Cal Poly, throughout the CSU system, and in wider local, national, and international and transnational networks. Relatedly, sprinkle aims to raise the profile of feminist and queer scholarship across the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, professional fields, and all other areas of disciplinary, cross-disciplinary, and interdisciplinary inquiry.

At sprinkle, we know that in order to transform the world we must make visible all forms of oppression, and sprinkle is conceived as part of larger, shared efforts to mobilize with those working within our journal, at Cal Poly, and throughout the world who have experienced injustice and violence. Above all, sprinkle demonstrates the ways that feminist and queer scholarship, activism, and art are expressions of knowing and formulating justice.

The journal is thus conceived for audiences with commitments to social justice work--in scholarly, activist, and creative forms--not only in feminist and queer studies but also in critical race and ethnic studies; dis/ability studies; global and transnational studies; cultural and media studies; science, technology, and society studies; and many other fields.
