Call for Papers for Australian Feminist Law Journal

Call for Papers, Australian Feminist Law Journal, General Issue.
Submit by Sept 1, 2011.

The call provides this description of the journal and paper requirements:

The Journal seeks to focus upon scholarly research using critical feminist approaches to law and justice, broadly conceived. As a critical legal journal we publish research informed by critical theory, cultural and literary theory, jurisprudential, postcolonial and psychoanalytic approaches, amongst other critical research practices. Articles may range from longer, academic pieces from a critical perspective (which will be refereed) to shorter Praxis notes on issues confronting women and men in their interactions with the law. The length of an article is variable, but normally ranges from 8000 to 12,000 words. We particularly wish to encourage interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary writing focusing on law. The AFLJ normally publishes a General Issue and a Special themed Issue each year: in 2011 volume 35 will be the General Issue and volume 36 of 2012 a Special Issue. Early submission of papers is welcomed.
