Intersections: Gender and Sexuality in Asia and the Pacific

Gender and Pandemic: Call for Papers

Given the significant and comprehensive impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic on global society, we are planning to publish a special issue on 'gender and pandemics' being guest edited by Xiaoping Fang.

Scholars in the fields of anthropology, sociology, gender, history, and public health will examine any topic relating to gender and pandemics in Asia and the Pacific. There is no limitation on historical period or particular pandemic. Furthermore, a section of the issue will be dedicated to narratives about personal experience of the current pandemic. It is envisaged that the issue as a whole will contextualise COVID-19 within other pandemics throughout history.

Articles should be between 5,000 and 6,000 words in length, although exceptions will be made if the argument is cogent. Personal narratives should be between 500 and 1,000 words. The submission deadline is 30 November 2020. After that, referees will read the contributions and give comments for revision. The issue is scheduled for publication in the first half of 2021.

Regarding the journal's referencing requirements and stylesheet, please refer to the submissions page of Intersections.
