Call for articles and art
We’re seeking journal submissions!
The theme of the second edition of our print journal ‘Disrupted’ is ‘post-colonialism and foreign policy’. What does this mean? It could be a post-colonial analysis of Indian Foreign Policy, or it could question how post-colonialism can help us understand Sweden’s Feminist Foreign Policy. Or, maybe it is a post-colonial feminist analysis of the “abortion clause” in American foreign population policy. We welcome all ideas.
We are specifically interested in articles which:
- Use post-colonialism and feminism to engage with and challenge global power structures
- Deconstruct the tendency toward Western-dominant foreign policy narratives
- Discuss how feminist foreign policy can push for equality beyond how Sweden and Canada have utilized it
- Are led by and incorporate marginalised voices to interrupt mainstream foreign policy ideas
- Question assumptions about the objectivity of foreign policy
- Paint the local into a larger global picture
We are also interested in including art, poetry, and other creative forms of
expression to highlight and breakdown similar ideas as listed above. Get creative –
we would love to see what a visual representation of a feminist foreign policy looks
like to you.
