Our goal is to annually showcase work that refuses to back down from the undeniably complicated nature of fashion studies.
Call for Submissions
We thank all of the contributors who took the time to submit their work to the inaugural issue of Fashion Studies. We are currently in the midst of the peer review process for the launch of Issue 1. While the deadline for our initial launch has passed, we will continue to accept submissions for Issue 1 on a rolling basis and invite you to consider sharing your work with us.
Please view the below Call for Submissions for a list of sample topics and formats that we love here at Fashion Studies. We look forward to hearing from you and sharing your innovative work in our inaugural and upcoming issues!
Our inaugural issue will be launched in May and we encourage you to submit your work. We have big dreams for Fashion Studies: as the first open access journal in fashion academia, we will set the bar for submissions that are published at no cost to contributors or readers. This is pretty important to us. Our goal is to annually showcase engaging and evocative work that grapples with the tough issues, works that refuse to back down from the undeniably complicated nature of fashion studies. Because we love fashion, we engage with it. And we set the bar, and our hopes, high with this first issue.
Without your help, this vision would not be possible. Fashion Studies is in search of academic work that analyzes fashion in an interdisciplinary manner. 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 in traditional or mixed media formats. Submissions that interact with topics such as diversity, feminism and social change are in particular encouraged!
Papers, photo essays, art and videos are all just some examples of acceptable formats.
To jump start your creative juices, we include this list of sample topics:
1. FASHION AND EQUALITY
2. FASHION AND THE ENVIRONMENT
3. FASHION INCLUSION AND REPRESENTATION
4. FASHION AND IDENTITY
5. FASHION AND POLITICAL CHANGE
Please see our submission guidelines for more details and information!
