The Central Dissent: a Journal of Gender and Sexuality

Call for Papers



You are invited to submit a paper for possible inclusion in the second issue of The Central Dissent: A Journal of Gender and Sexuality. The Central Dissent is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary academic journal based out of the University of Central Oklahoma’s Liberal Arts College, sponsored by the UCO's Women’s Research Center as well as the BGLTQ+ Student Center, and published through New Plains Centre for Student Publishing.

Being the first and only academic journal focused on gender and sexuality in Oklahoma, our mission is to gather and disseminate quality research, fiction, personal stories, prose, poetry, artwork, and academic reviews that explore gender theory, gender identity, as well as how race, class, and ethnicity shape society’s expectations of the individual both currently and historically.


The Central Dissent aims to provide a platform for researchers, poets, writers, and artists to present new research and developments in these areas through various mediums, including:

  • Scholarly Reviews
  • Research Papers
  • Fiction
  • Creative Non-Fiction
  • Poetry
  • Prose
  • Art

Areas of interest for this journal issue focus on sexuality and sexual health, although work related to Gender and Sexuality Studies, in general, are welcome.

Those who wish to participate will need to submit their full work by email to the Editorial Board with the title, author(s)/creator(s), photographs if submitting artwork, and abstract. The full manuscript should be emailed to the Editorial Board by the deadline indicated below.
