Series description

Advances in Gender Research (AGR) offers readers original manuscripts dealing with new developments in the study of gender informed by a variety of feminist frameworks and methodologies.

The series encourages and engages with empirical and theoretical gender scholarship worldwide. It furthers the understanding of gender and promotes the application of this understanding to the solution of social problems and the achievement of equality locally and globally.

Advances in Gender Research recognises that gender intersects with other social structures, including, but not limited to race/ethnicity, sexuality, citizenship, social class, age, and (dis)ability; and with various institutions, including, but not limited to the family, the state, the economy, the media, and education. The series seeks manuscripts that explore these intersections.

Advances in Gender Research seeks well-written chapters that place current or historical data in context, critically review the literature in gender-related subfields, provide new theoretical or methodological insights or assess the impact of social actions, programs or movements. The series includes chapters that are theoretical, empirical or applied, dealing with any nation or region, or taking a comparative perspective.
