The Journal of Diversity and Gender Studies (DiGeSt) is an open access, bi-annual, peer-reviewed international journal dedicated to the intersection of diversity and gender studies. It is included in the Flemish Academic Bibliography for the Social Sciences and the Humanities (VABB-SHW).
DiGeSt has the ambition to be a leading journal in the field and publishes original work from a wide array of disciplines including sociology, anthropology, communication sciences, political sciences, philosophy, history, arts and literature. In addition, it is open to work from other disciplines such as psychology and educational sciences, especially when there is a strong link with frameworks that are also used in the social sciences and the humanities.
Given that debates about gender and diversity often transcend national borders, the journal publishes work related to all geographical contexts.
The DiGeSt editorial team is inviting proposals to appear in Autumn 2020 for a Special Issue. Through this open call, we promote prospective Guest Editors to send ideas for Special Issues to our Chief Editors by 1 October 2019 (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com; please use both emails).
This special issue seeks to advance the understanding of sexual politics and diversity in the context of the materiality of digital media (including affordances, algorithms, and the politics of social media platforms and data). It wants to make a theoretical, conceptual, and empirical contribution to the field of gender and diversity studies by exploring how techno-cultural and socioeconomic aspects of digital media infrastructures are intertwined with sexualities.
