Advancing Feminism, Reshaping Scholarship
August 20th through November 1st, 2015
Recognized as the leading international journal in women’s and gender studies, Signs: A Journal
of Women in Culture and Society, came to Northeastern in January of 2015, after a successful competitive bid by Editor-in-Chief Suzanna Danuta Walters and Chair of the Editorial Board,
Carla Kaplan. For forty years, Signs has redefined the forefront of interdisciplinary scholarship
by challenging the boundaries of knowledge concerning women’s and men’s with cutting-edge approaches to feminist, queer, and antiracist visions of social transformation. Drawing on extraordinary regional strengths in this field, and on the Graduate Consortium in Women’s Studies, the Editorial Board of Signs includes more than sixty academics from nine of the area’s best colleges and universities and its arrival puts Northeastern at the center of a vibrant community of renowned intellectuals.
