An Introduction to the Journal of Middle East Women's Studies

We are excited to share this video about the Journal of Middle East Women's Studies (JMEWS), edited by miriam cooke, Banu Gökarıksel, and Frances S. Hasso.

JMEWS is an interdisciplinary journal that advances the fields of Middle East gender, sexuality, and women's studies through the contributions of academics, artists, and activists from around the globe working in the interpretive social sciences and humanities. The journal publishes area-specific research informed by transnational feminist, sexuality, masculinity, and cultural theories and scholarship. It is particularly interested in work that employs historical, ethnographic, literary, textual, and visual analyses and methodologies. The journal also publishes book and film reviews, review essays, and dissertation abstracts that highlight theoretical innovation in gender and sexuality studies focused on the Middle East.
