Draft paper deadline - November 15, 2016

Advances in Gender Research is a book series edited by Vasilikie Demos and Marcia Texler Segal published by Emerald Publishing with worldwide authorship and readership. We typically publish two volumes of original chapters based on one or a collection of related themes each year; some volumes are guest-edited.

For 2017 we have one volume that has places for additional chapters and are seeking about six manuscripts of up to 9,000 words including tables and references that are ready or nearly ready for publication. The chapters we have focus on the contributions of the late Sandra Bem to the study of gender.

In addition to further discussions of Bem’s work, suitable companion chapters might focus on:
•       the contributions of other pioneers to gender studies,
•       the history of the social science study of gender in general or in a particular country or region,
•       the study of gender in a particular subgroup such as children and youth or;
•       contrasting ways of conceptualizing gender.

Additional suggestions, including suggestions for a second theme for the volume are also welcome. Those wishing to explore the possibilities should contact the volume editors.

Draft papers for consideration should be sent no later than November 15, 2016
All papers must be in Word documents and in English. 
Abstracts, completed manuscripts, and inquiries should be submitted via email to Marla Kohlman at [email protected], along with a brief biological sketch (not to exceed 100 words per author).  Please take care to identify all submissions with the keywords:  Bem Legacy.
