CFP - Gender and World History

Dear colleagues,

From the editorial committee of Entremons: UPF Journal of World History, we invite you to send an original text, which we can publish in the next edition of our journal. We are looking for academic articles, as well as reviews of recently published books, which address the ways in which gender intersects with world history.

Suggested themes:

 The origin of gendered inequalities

Is There Linguistic Bias in Academic Publication?

The language you use to express yourself, your form and style of communication, and even the examples you use have a direct impact on how your research is perceived in your field and adopted among your peers.
