Update :

we’ve had an overwhelming response to this call and are excited to see so many papers already published, which reflect the experiences, emotions and changing nature of our lives during this time. Given some time has passed between our call and today, we are also seeing full empirical papers being submitted to this section and would encourage authors to submit those as a regular submission.

We would also like to expand this call to include experiences of the other simultaneous pandemic: racism. Please send us your writing, reflections, narratives, etc. that speak to your experiences, thoughts and other engagements on/with racism.

As a reminder, this is an open call for papers, so no closing date just yet and no word limits.

About :

The Feminist Frontiers section of Gender, Work and Organization is calling for papers, short pieces, alternative narratives that discuss how the current pandemic we are living through affects our lives and livelihoods. As feminists living and possibly struggling with the demands placed on us, we wish to foster dialogue that involve discussions of how to live a feminist life during COVID-19, while attending to the various ways intersectional, postcolonial, transnational, queer and other frameworks can help us understand and relate to the struggles, failures, and resilience experienced. Some issues to attend to are:

  • Resistance to commodification of our homes and lives
  • Parents, single parenting, homeworking and homeschooling
  • Practices (and frictions) of solidarity during crisis
  • Care, vulnerability, health and diversity
  • Industrial relations during this crisis
  • Tensions between best practice diversity employers and a lack of consideration of diversity
  • Community, care and ethics
  • Home as a contested space
  • Work intensification at home, flexible working
  • Borders, lack of free movement, being displaced
  • Eco-anxiety and feminism
  • Saying ‘no’ to enforced ways of working
  • Women’s resistance and the labelling of women’s emotions (you are overwhelmed, you are being
  • hysterical)
  • And others…

Please send us your contributions via the Feminist Frontiers section of the journal. We will act
quickly to review and publish your papers.
