Feminist Economics

Call for Papers


Guest Edited by

Edith Kuiper and Ellie Perkins

Feminist Economics invites submissions of brief articles (4,000 words or less) on feminist ecological economics for a symposium to be published in the

Explorations section of Feminist Economics (www.feministeconomics.org). The deadline for abstracts is November 30, 2003 and the deadline for final

papers is February 15, 2004, although earlier submission will be appreciated. 

Feminist economics shares many concerns in common with ecological economics. For instance, both pose similar methodological challenges; and both

cover many topics that do not lend themselves easily to monetary evaluation - such as domestic work and reproduction in the case of feminist

economics or biodiversity and ecological knowledge in the case of ecological economics.

The aim of this Explorations section is to provide readers of Feminist Economics with an overview of some of the central issues and approaches in

feminist ecological economics, and to strengthen the dialogue on social, economic, and ecological sustainability. Among the topics that contributors could

address are the following:

 convergence and divergence between feminist and ecological economic concerns and theories 

 feminist ecological perspectives on social reproduction 

 feminist and ecological approaches to value, productivity, and sustainable growth

 gender, development and ecological change

Prior to submission, please send abstracts and any queries to the guest editors: Ellie Perkins (esperk@yorku.ca) and Edith Kuiper


Final papers should be submitted to the journal's editor, Diana Strassmann (feministeconomics@rice.edu), and should conform to the editorial policies,

style guidelines, and submission instructions given on the journal's webpage at www.feministeconomics.org. Submission guidelines may also be

requested by writing to: Diana Strassmann, Editor, Feminist Economics, MS-9, Rice University, P.O. Box 1892, Houston, TX 77251-1892, USA (Email:

feministeconomics@rice.edu; fax: 1.713.348.5495).
