Call for Dissertation Précis now open

Call for Dissertation Précis

 Gender, Place and Culture is committed to promoting scholarship in feminist geography. As part of this commitment the journal is launching a new initiative: publishing doctoral dissertation précis. As part of the feminist geography community, we seek to celebrate academic work written by students who have laboured long and hard to complete their studies. By honoring these accomplishments, the journal can show how students engaging with feminist geography are building the future of the discipline.

 Gender, Place and Culture will be publishing doctoral dissertation précis in each issue. Submissions will be considered on a competitive basis. Each précis will undergo a vetting process by an Editor. Successful submissions will join the queue for publication.

 We seek original pieces of writing of about 1500 words (including references) that summarize a recently defended dissertation. Rather than publishing the abstracts submitted with the dissertation, we request that authors write a different piece summarizing the dissertation in a way that highlights the contributions to feminist geographies. We request that the abstract accompanying the dissertation be submitted alongside the newly written précis. We also request that a set of five to seven key words accompany the submission. Please refer to our guidance notes for further information on dissertation précis at: http://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?journalCode=cgpc20&page=instructions

The Editors invite authors to submit précis of their dissertations through ScholarOne. Dissertations defended in 2016 and 2017 are now being accepted.

On behalf of the Editors of Gender, Place and Culture
