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.

Engendering Latin America attracts, disseminates, and assists in the creation of quality book-length works that examine the social, cultural, and gendered histories of Latin America. The series concentrates on history informed by current debates and research questions that arise from feminist studies, gender-based scholarship, and allied research.
The editors define gender broadly, both geographically and chronologically, to encompass work derived from Latin America and the Caribbean, from colonial to modern times. Covering themes such as feminism, masculinity, culture, ethnicity, public health, modernity, nation-building, race, and politics, Engendering Latin America examines marginal groups such as women, minorities, indigenous peoples, and other non-elites to provide sophisticated interdisciplinary analyses of cultures and gender south of the border.
This series has been inactive for several years, but has recently been relaunched with new 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 seeks to be the most reliable destination for teaching and researching North American anthropology.

JOURNALS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS
FEMINIST GERMAN STUDIES
Feminist German Studies is a refereed publication presenting a wide range of feminist approaches to all aspects of German literature, culture, and language, including pedagogy. Reflecting the interdisciplinary perspectives that inform feminist German studies, each issue contains critical inquiries employing gender and other analytical categories to examine the work, history, life, literature, and arts of the German-speaking world.
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.
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.
Legacy is the official journal of the Society for the Study of American Women Writers. It is the only journal to focus specifically on American women’s writings from the seventeenth through the early twentieth century. Each issue’s articles cover a wide range of topics: examinations of the works of individual authors; genre studies; analyses of race, ethnicity, gender, class, and sexualities in women’s literature; and historical and material cultural issues pertinent to women’s lives and literary works. In addition, Legacy regularly publishes profiles of lesser-known or newly recovered authors, reprints of primary works in all genres, and book reviews covering current scholarship in the field.
WOMEN AND MUSIC
Women and Music is an annual journal of scholarship about women, music, and culture. Drawing on a wide range of disciplines and approaches, this refereed journal seeks to further the understanding of the relationships among gender, music, and culture, with special attention being given to the concerns of women.
