Aims and Scope
For over 30 years the journal feministische studien has been one of the leading inter- and transdisciplinary forums for Women- and Gender Studies in the German-speaking countries.
The fs address social changes critically, engage in scholarly and public debates and provide impetus for current controversies.
One aim is to promote new views but also to give rise for changes in practice: issues with a special focus – e.g. "Sex in the City – Frauen im öffentlichen Raum" [Sex in the City – Women in public spaces] (Issue 2/2014) – take up currently relevant topics and social questions or respond to new forms of thinking and new practices, e.g. under the title "Solidaritäten" [Solidarities] (Issue 1/2015).
The printed version of feministische studien is published twice a year, in May and November. You will find an overview of all published volumes under the menu Archive.
Our comprehensive index allows you to find specific articles with the help of a list of keywords and authors’ names. If you click here you will find a main text from the current issue of Feministische Studien.
The fs have always regarded themselves as a place for critical reflection of feminist movements and articulations: Our blog (blog.feministische-studien.de ), introduced in November 2014, intends to complement the journal with up-to-date contributions to current issues, to encourage the dialog between different feminist generations and to invite to enter into conversations with our authors and us.
We wish you intellectual and political stimulation reading our journal or the blog and are looking forward to your response.
The current issue (volume 34, issue 1 [May 2016])
More than 100 years ago, women fought for their right to enter the places of hegemonial production of knowledge: universities and colleges; with the first women’s seminars and summer universities these places then became a central place for feminist intervention. Today these places experience a fundamental restructuring that not only concerns academic feminism directly but also challenge to comment. Having set out to change the research system as such as well as the forms and contents of academic production of knowledge lastingly and to open up hitherto excluded forms and subjects of research, academic feminism – we – have to ask what we are currently experiencing on a daily basis.
The volume was edited by Celine Camus, Katharins Kreissl and Aline Oloff.

The Editors introduce themselves
Editorial work on submissions to Feministische Studien is based on a blind peer-review procedure. Submitted manuscripts are rendered anonymous and sent to two accredited reviewers for a first appraisal. If the initial reviews are positive, then all members of the editorial board read and assess the manuscript. This interdisciplinary approach shapes the profile of the individual issues and ensures the consistently high scholarly quality of each contribution.
The Advisory Board of the periodical was set up in 1987, and has now scholars from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The board members are primarily from the social sciences and humanities, as well as the natural sciences. They evaluate manuscripts submitted for review, plan the individual issues, provide ideas and also constitute an additional body to ensure the consistent quality of the contributions.
