Feminist Critique: East European Journal of Feminist and Queer Studies (Web)
Feminist Critiqueis a peer-reviewed academic journal publishing papers in English, Russian, and Ukrainian. The first issue was publised in 2018. It is available full open-access.
The editors want to provide a platform for exchanging ideas in the sphere of critical knowledge and encourage debates on socially important issues related to the East European region among global scholarly and activist communities.
Feminist Critique publishes papers on a wide range of topics with strong feminist and/or queer-theoretical positionality. The editors consider feminism broader than merely debates on women’s rights and gender equality, and they see queer theory as more than LGBT studies. They take feminism and queer theory as a tool for critical analysis of the implications of power, knowledge, and politics through which various “others” are constructed and naturalized, and global and local regimes of inequalities are established and maintained.
The editors approach is based on multiple interdisciplinary perspectives, including – but not limited to decolonial, postcolonial and post-Soviet studies, critical race studies, transgender studies, crip studies, post-human studies, critical study of capitalism, nationalism, citizenship, migration, and militarization (Web).
