The description is submitted to:


Session C4965 (Middle East Feminist and Queer Studies: State of the Field), 2017
I will discuss some of the newer questions and approaches we find in submitted manuscripts as well as areas of knowledge, questions and approaches that remain under-examined. I will discuss best author practices in terms of writing, conceptualization, theorization, and cross-disciplinary engagements for manuscripts submitted to JMEWS. I will also raise a few points about the importance and value of double blind peer review.
