Call for Papers: Issue 2 of Fashion Studies

From Fashion Studies

After a successful launch, we are looking forward to continuing to publish innovative, forward-thinking research in the field of fashion studies. Our second issue will be published this May 2019, and we encourage you to submit your work. All submissions for Issue 2 are due January 15, 2019.

Thus far, we have seen many of our dreams for Fashion Studies realized: as the first open access journal in fashion academia, our inaugural issue has set the bar for submissions that are published at no cost to contributors or readers. Annually showcasing engaging and evocative work that grapples with the tough issues, works that refuse to back down from the undeniably complicated nature of fashion studies, helps to guarantee that fashion research will remain accessible and disruptive, and will continue to inspire social change.

Without your help, this vision would not be possible. For its second issue, Fashion Studies is in search of scholarly and creative research that analyzes fashion in an interdisciplinary manner in a wide range formats. Our journal is mixed media focused: academic papers or creative work, as well as combinations of the two, are always welcome. We also invite interviews and reviews in traditional or mixed media formats.

To jump start your creative juices, we include this list of sample topics:

1. Fashion Inclusion & Representation

2. Fashion, Identity, & The Body

3. Fashion & Equality

4. Fashion & the Environment

5. Fashion & Political Change
