Call for Papers – Lilith

Lilith Call for Papers 2008

Lilith is a fully refereed academic journal based in the History
Department at the University of Melbourne. Since the early 1980s, Lilith
has provided a valuable forum for new and established scholars to present
research in feminist history. The journal is published annually in
November and includes a substantial book review section. The editorial
board is currently seeking articles for Edition 17.

We warmly welcome all submissions based on substantial and original
historical work focussed around women, gender, sexuality and other related
issues. We encourage contributions from both new and established scholars
in these fields, as well as postgraduates. Submissions considered for
publication are assessed via a double-blind peer review process.

Following last year’s symposium we particularly welcome papers around the
theme Her-story: Histories of Feminist Representation.  We encourage
histories of representations of feminism in mainstream media and academia
as well as histories of counter- and sub-cultural representations of
feminism. This may include film, television, radio, theatre, visual art
and written texts.

All submissions should be around 6,000 words in length, including
endnotes, and accompanied by abstracts of around 150 words. We hope to
receive all submissions by 23 May. Please ensure manuscripts adhere to our
style guide, available from

Please send submissions by the May 23rd to:
