About the Journal

Please note that gender forum is still in the process of moving to Open Journal Systems (hosted by USB Cologne - see https://journals.ub.uni-koeln.de/). We are currently designing the new layout and migrating back issues to this platform, so bear with us!

gender forum is an online, peer reviewed academic journal dedicated to the discussion of gender issues. As an open access online journal, gender forum offers a platform for the discussion of gender-related topics in the fields of literary and cultural production, media and the arts as well as politics, the natural sciences, medicine, the law, religion and philosophy.

Inaugurated by Beate Neumeier at the University of Cologne (Germany) in 2002, issues of gender forum have since focused on a multitude of questions from different theoretical perspectives of feminist criticism, queer theory, and masculinity studies. gender forum also includes reviews and occasionally interviews, fictional pieces and poetry with a gender studies angle.

Listed as an open access journal, gender forum also cooperates with a number of academic databases. All material on gender forum, unless stated otherwise, is protected under the creative commons license.

We welcome submissions for articles, as well as reviews. Abstracts or full-length articles should be submitted via this website.
