Call for papers



The second issue of "Balthazar" (2021-I) will be entirely dedicated to feminisms. We chose the plural in order to acknowledge the complexity and multiplicity of perspectives within feminism and to promote the dialogue between different disciplines and methodologies.

We thus invite scholars from different fields to submit papers engaging one of the following topics:


  • Feminism, activism and women’s rights
  • Feminist theories and methodologies
  • History of feminisms, gender and sexuality
  • Intersections of gender, “race”, class, disability, and species
  • Postcolonial debate and gender
  • Gender and migration
  • Gender and reproductive labor
  • Transgender and queer sexuality
  • Subjectivity, femininity, masculinity
  • Culture and gender representation
  • Gender, literature, and social sciences


Accepted languages: Italian, English, French, Spanish

Final deadline: 6th January 2021

Expected release: February 2021
