Call for Papers: Centralizing Reproductive Justice

Call for Papers: Centralizing Reproductive Justice

We are pleased to invite submissions for the joint issue of Kohl: a Journal for Body and Gender Research and The A Project, slated for publication in December 2018.

In this issue, we call for a further understanding of reproductive justice in the West Asia and North Africa regions, challenging the pathologization of bodies, the shallow approach to access to health, and the stigmatization of the agency of women and trans* people. We aim for the “single issues” that activists, NGOs, and donors rally around to extend into the reproductive justice narrative they belong to. Moving them away from sustaining structures of violence would avoid legitimizing certain bodies, practices, and lives at the expense of others’, as these points of rupture contribute to the absenting of reproductive justice from certain communities.

The deadline for submission is August 19, 2018.

To submit a paper, please send your blinded piece to as a .doc or .docx file, with “Submission Issue 8” as the subject of your e-mail.

The full call is available as a PDF version.
