Feminismo/s provides open access to the research community
Feminismo/s journal was born in 2003 from the University of Alicante Women's Studies Centre with the desire to offer the academic community and civil society a space for expression and critical debate in the field of gender studies and feminist theory. The creation of the journal then responded at that time to the need of analysing which relations of power underlie gender discrimination and how they are configured and materialised in daily life from both theoretical and practical perspectives. Adding the gender perspective to daily experience meant widening the chances of understanding between individuals and setting the foundations for a mutual agreement able to soften conflicts that, along with other socio-cultural reasons, end up in unbalanced power relationships between men and women.
Also, this project would emerge from the need of relating cultural production to society, with an ethical perspective committed to research and academic activity. In this sense, textual production was configured not only as the product resulting from the historic and cultural context of a period, but also as a work where the binomial subjectivity and writing comes true within the power-knowledge relationship.
In 2014, the University of Alicante Institute for Gender Studies Research takes up the torch of the Women's Studies Centre in its mission of combining research with the gender issue, cultural production and society, with an always ethical dimension committed to academic work. As a result of the editorial project started by the WSC a decade ago, Feminismo/s journal becomes established in this new period keeping an interdisciplinary nature whose goal is providing its readers with tools for the analysis and interpretation of gender relationships in contemporary social and cultural context without forgetting the historical perspective.
Feminismo/s is shaped as a permanently open space to channel the research activity, exchange different viewpoints and build a theoretical framework free from essentialisms in the development of women's studies, gender and feminist theory.
