2019 Symonds Prize
Studies in Gender and Sexuality: An Interdisciplinary Journal
NEW SUBMISSION DEADLINE: October 1, 2018
Studies in Gender and Sexuality, thanks to the Alexandra and Martin Symonds Foundation, invites submissions to its annual competition for the best previously unpublished essay on gender and/or sexuality.
Studies in Gender and Sexuality is one of the leading journals in the transdisciplinary field of gender and sexuality studies. Situated at the interface of psychoanalysis and social/cultural theory, it aims to further our understanding of how we live, theorize, and transform gender and sexuality.
The essay may engage clinical, critical, empirical or theoretical questions that relate to gender and sexuality. The writer may be new or seasoned. The topic may be cutting-edge or venerable. We welcome essays that vary in form and content, including transdisciplinary work.
Submissions will be judged by members of the Editorial Board. The winner will receive $500, and the essay will be published in SGS.
Now in its 19th year, SGS has continued to publish a wide range of critical perspectives on gender and sexuality. It has a particular (though not exclusive) interest in approaches that use psychoanalysis to complicate and deepen our conceptualizations of gender and sexuality, whilst using theories of gender and sexuality to complicate psychoanalytic theory and practice. In doing so, SGS opens debates about the tensions between subjective and affective life and social and political formations.
