Volume 46.1, June 2020

Due: November 30, 2018

The Australian Feminist Law Journal calls for submissions for the positions of Special Editor(s) of a Special Themed Issue of the Journal, namely Volume 46.1 (June 2020). Special Editors work in conjunction with the Editorial Board to create a theme, solicit articles, organize the referee process, make publication decisions and guide author revisions, subject to the oversight of the Board who will ensure consistency with the AFLJ’s focus on critical feminist approaches to law and justice, broadly conceived. As an international Critical Legal Journal we publish research informed by critical theory, cultural and literary theory, jurisprudential, postcolonial and psychoanalytic approaches, amongst other critical research practices.  Each journal issue normally comprises 8 articles of approximately 8,000 words, including footnotes. Special Editors are encouraged to plan their Themed Issue around a conference, workshop, or other mode of organizing preparations for the research and publication theme, including a public call for papers.

The timeline for publication would be as follows:

  • Call for Papers for Volume 46.1 deadline August 15, 2019
  • Final perfect drafts after revisions due with Editorial Board January 15, 2020
  • Publication in June 2020

Proposals to become Special Editor(s) of Volume 46.1 should be sent to the Managing Editors at and include:

  • the editor(s) names, institutions and relevant publications
  • the proposed theme of the Special Issue in 300 words
  • the significance of the chosen theme and the kind of papers which might be submitted
  • the proposed timelines of the Volume
