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.

Advances in Trans Studies
Edited by: Austin H. Johnson, Baker A. Rogers, and Tiffany Taylor

This call is for chapter proposals for an edited volume focusing on trans studies. We take a broad approach and welcome a range of chapters that may relate to this topic. We are interested in work that takes seriously the intersections of sexualities, race, class, nationality, citizenship, and more, with trans studies.
Abstracts must be at least 500 words and include details about the research question, theory, methods, and any findings. Early drafts of chapters are also acceptable and encouraged. We have a broad conceptualization of trans studies, but specific topics of interest include: trans people’s interactions with various social institutions, including but not limited to, healthcare and medicalization, the criminal justice system, the family, religion, and education; nonbinary gender identities and expressions; and the state of the field and future of trans studies. Chapters that use an intersectional approach and those that have stated implications for policy and advocacy are especially welcome. We strongly encourage trans, nonbinary, and gender diverse scholars to submit. We also invite submissions from graduate students and early career faculty. We welcome abstracts from all countries and regions, but chapters must be in English and all work must be submitted as a Word document. Both qualitative and quantitative abstracts are welcome. The editors will base their decision to publish submitters’ chapters on review by the AGR editorial board. Submitters will be informed of the editors’ decision by November 15.

Abstracts, drafts of a chapter, and inquiries should be sent to
Submission of Abstract for Consideration by October 1, 2020
Completed Draft due by January 15, 2021
Publication Date: Fall 2021
