In this series, we aim to publish books that work with, and through, feminist insights on global politics, and illuminate the ways in which gender functions not just as a marker of identity but also as a constitutive logic in global political practices. This series welcomes scholarship on any aspect of global political practices, broadly conceived, that pays attention to the ways in which gender is central to, (re)produced in, and is productive of, such practices.
There is growing recognition both within the academy and in global political institutions that gender matters in and to the practices of global politics. From the governance of peace and security, to the provision of funds for development initiatives, via transnational advocacy networks linked through strategic engagement with new forms of media, these processes have a gendered dimension that is made visible through empirically grounded and theoretically sophisticated feminist work.
The series aims to be genuinely global in scope. We welcome submissions from scholars in/of the global South and support scholars for whom English is a second or other language through the publication process with dedicated editorial assistance. The series is also multi-disciplinary, publishing work from across the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences with a global aspect and political focus.
