Journal of the Month: WSQ

WSQ: Engage

In honor of Women’s History month, we’re featuring the Women’s Studies Quarterly (WSQ) as the journal of the month for March. WSQ is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal published twice a year in June and December as a joint project of The Feminist Press and the Center for the Study of Women and Society at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. Since 1972, WSQ has been an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of emerging perspectives on women, gender, and sexuality.

WSQ Volume 41, Numbers 3-4, Fall/Winter 2013 is dedicated to the topic of engagement:

Engagement is entanglement—the drawing together of participants into a cooperating unit. So what does it mean to breach participation? How do the dynamics of social and political engagements inform one another? How are our relationships to institutions and identities defined by the degree to which we engage?

Along with essays, poetry, and fiction, two visual arts projects are included: Contact Sheet of Nike Missiles for a Moon Calendar (2012) photography by artist MPA, and Art, Environment, Action! (2012), by Radhika Subramaniam. Stop by the library to view this journal, and browse the back issues on display!
