De Gruyter Publishers hereby invite scholars to submit manuscripts for the new series Oyster: Feminist and Queer Approaches to Arts, Cultures, and Genders

This book series aims at providing a platform for original and innovative scholarly research on questions of gender and sexuality in the fields of diversified arts and globalized cultures. The contributors approach their subjects within frameworks of feminist and queer thought, theories, and practice. At the same time, the research monographs and edited collections create a forum where complex disciplinary histories and methodologies entangled with powerful epistemologies can be addressed. As part of a broader critical discourse, the series explores the role of art in articulating queer and feminist politics globally in both historical and contemporary contexts and across genres, media, and audiences. Drawing inspiration from the gender fluid oyster, this book series hopes to foster new perspectives of a transnational, decolonizing, intersectional, transversal and fantastic world of arts, cultures and genders.  

This book series is open to different formats, such as monographs and edited volumes, both in English and German language. Books can be published in color in print and/or digitally as e-books (Gold Open Access).

Please note that a publication with a German publisher involves a financial contribution to the production costs. The publisher will, however, support you in the search and acquisition of third-party funding.
