Interdisciplinary Approaches to Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality
Karen Leong and Andrea Smith, series editors
The Expanding Frontiers series promotes rigorous and interdisciplinary research that critically expands the field and purview of feminist, women’s, and gender studies. This book series builds upon the journal Frontiers and its commitment to “diverse and decisively interdisciplinary” publications –monographs as well as collaborations— that explore critical intersections of gender, race, sexuality, class, nation, and other dimensions. In particular, the series seeks to expand the knowledge generated by and about women, men, and transpeople of color, although it also embraces scholarship about women, men, and transpeople globally who are negotiating multiple and intersecting sites of affiliation, identity and commitment. The series welcomes scholarship regarding disability, cultural geography, comparative ethnic studies, critical race studies, indigenous cultures, transnational feminisms, expressive cultures and the arts, policy, and social movements. The series is particularly open to innovative and critical scholarship that is accessible across disciplines and fields, based in feminist epistemologies, and committed to social transformation research. The series is committed to supporting new scholarship in the field and is dedicated to guiding new authors through the publication process.
While the book series title evokes the continued expansion of knowledge in women’s and gender studies, the concept of “frontiers” also consciously calls into question how this knowledge about gender and sexuality is produced and acknowledges the contestations about what constitutes feminist, women’s, and gender studies. This dual meaning functions contrary to traditional conceptions of “frontiers” which, historically intertwined with empire and colonization, have been deployed to reproduce hegemonic structures of inequality. The Expanding Frontiers series speaks to the importance of intersectional analytical approaches and reflexivity in making sense of how women, gender, and sexuality are contingently constructed categories that have different material consequences for individuals based on their social locations.
James S. Bielo and Carrie M. Lane, series editors
The aim of this series is to publish teachable, empirically rich, and conceptually innovative books that contribute to the comparative anthropology of North America. The series will emphasize ethnographic approaches to contemporary subject matter grouped under five broad headings: Dynamics of Inequality; Transnational Motions; Movements of Change; Entertainment, Play, and Authority; and Post-Industrial Assemblages. The series seeks to be the most reliable destination for teaching and researching North American anthropology.

JOURNALS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS
AMERICAN INDIAN QUARTERLY
American Indian Quarterly has earned its reputation as one of the dominant journals in American Indian studies by presenting the best and most thought-provoking scholarship in the field. AIQ is a forum for diverse voices and perspectives spanning a variety of academic disciplines. The common thread is AIQ’s commitment to publishing work that contributes to the development of American Indian studies as a field and to the sovereignty and continuance of American Indian nations and cultures. In addition to peer-reviewed articles, AIQfeatures reviews of books, films, and exhibits.
Americas: A Hemispheric Music Journal presents a broad view of American music, one that encompasses the diverse soundscapes within the United States as well as the wider Americas, including the Caribbean. Formerly known as the AMRC Journal, Americas continues to further the mission of the American Music Research Center at the University of Colorado Boulder, but in a refocused and revitalized way that reflects the research interests of 21st Century scholars. Each annual issue focuses on one central theme. Recurring special sections highlight the spaces and places where music is made and the people who compose, perform, and otherwise support that music.
One of the premier publications in the field of feminist and gender studies, Frontiers has distinguished itself for its diverse and decisively interdisciplinary publication agenda that explores the critical intersections among—to name a few dimensions—gender, race, sexuality, and transnationalism. Many landmark articles in the field have been published in Frontiers, in its 40+ year history, thus critically shaping the fields of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies.
GREAT PLAINS QUARTERLY
Great Plains Quarterly publishes articles for scholars and interested laypeople on history, literature, culture, and social issues relevant to the Great Plains, which include Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Wyoming, and the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan.
The journal, which is published for the Center for Great Plains Studies, is edited by a faculty member from the University of Nebraska and includes a distinguished international board of advisory editors.
GREAT PLAINS RESEARCH
Great Plains Research publishes original research and scholarly reviews of important advances in the natural and social sciences with relevance to and special emphases on environmental, economic and social issues in the Great Plains. It includes reviews of books and reports on symposia and conferences that included sessions on topics pertaining to the Great Plains. The overall goals are to develop GPR as a centralized outlet for science of regional importance, to communicate important scientific findings to as wide an educated audience as possible, and to help keep scientists, interested citizens, and leaders of this region up to date on scientific progress relevant to the Great Plains.
Great Plains Research is published for the Center for Great Plains Studies at the University of Nebraska.
HOME FRONT STUDIES
This interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal explores the concept of the home front, broadly considered, in times of war, civil war, and similar conflicts from the late nineteenth century to the present day. As such, its focus is not on battles, military leadership and training, theaters of conflict, or war strategies. Rather, the journal looks at the role of art, citizenship, culture, discrimination, finance, gender, identity, music, morale, propaganda, resistance, society, and other factors as experienced by civilians on home fronts in locations around the world.
JOURNAL OF BLACK SEXUALITY AND RELATIONSHIPS
The Journal of Black Sexuality and Relationships is devoted to addressing the epistemological, ontological, and social construction of sexual expression and relationships of persons within the African diaspora. The journal seeks to take into account the transhistorical substrates that subsume behavioral, affective, and cognitive functioning of persons of African descent as well as those who educate or clinically serve this important population. Quantitative, qualitative, and conceptual, articles, book reviews, and letters to the editor address various cultural substrates (e.g., age, race, gender, sexual orientation/identities, ability, spirituality, etc.) that intersect or weave themselves in/out of sexual expression, romantic relationships, and/or friendships. Interdisciplinary in nature, the journal includes perspectives from a variety of fields including psychology, sociology, education, psychiatry, human development, social work, social policy, and anthropology.
The JBSR is the official journal of the Association of Black Sexologists and Clinicians. A subscription to the journal is included with membership. To order the membership/subscription bundle, please visit the ABSC membership page.
JOURNAL OF SPORTS MEDIA
The Journal of Sports Media is a response to the undeniable influence of sports media on contemporary culture and the growing interest in the field as an area of study and research. It provides a broad-based exploration of the field and promotes a greater understanding of sports media in terms of their practices, value, and effect on the culture as a whole. The journal features scholarly articles, essays, and book reviews. While the majority of the articles are academic in nature, it also includes articles from industry leaders and sports media figures on topics appealing to a non-academic audience.
MIDDLE WEST REVIEW
The Middle West Review is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal focused on studying the American Midwest, a “lost region” which has received far less scholarly attention than other American regions. Middle West Review is the only scholarly print publication dedicated exclusively to the study of the Midwest as a region. It provides a forum for scholars and non-scholars alike to explore the meaning of Midwestern identity, history, geography, society, culture, and politics. Overall, the mission of the Middle West Review is to join with like-minded associations, historical societies, writers, and scholars to help revitalize the study of the American Midwest. The inaugural issue of the journal was published in the fall of 2014 and since 2019 Middle West Review has made the University of South Dakota its home.
WESTERN AMERICAN LITERATURE
Published by the Western Literature Association in partnership with the University of Nebraska Press.Since 1965, Western American Literature has been the leading peer-reviewed journal in the literary and cultural study of the North American West, defined broadly to include western Canada and northern Mexico. The journal constantly looks for new theoretical approaches to canonical figures as well as studies of emerging authors, filmmakers, and others who are expanding the canon of western literary and cultural production. While remaining grounded in the geography of the North American West, it continues to explore new approaches to literary and cultural studies more broadly, such as groundbreaking work in ecocriticism and scholarly support for the Hispanic Literary Heritage Recovery Project.
In a desire to further this tradition of integrating western studies into global scholarly conversations, there is special interest in publishing theoretical and critical articles in areas such as critical regionalism, global indigeneity, settler-colonialism, digital humanities, cinema and new media, global wests, and other cutting edge approaches.
