About the Journal

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.
