The Journal of Feminist Feminist Studies in Religion celebrates 30 years of feminist scholarship in religion. The journal is a channel for the publication of feminist scholarship in religion and a forum for discussion and dialogue among women and men of differing feminist perspectives.
JFSR is the oldest interdisciplinary, interreligious feminist academic journal in religious studies. Founded in 1985, it is published twice annually, in the spring and fall. Located at the intersection of feminist theory and studies in religion, it welcomes contributions that explore a diversity of feminist theories, practices, cultures, and religions. The journals co-editors are Judith Plaskow and Traci West. The senior editor is Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza, recipient of the 2012 Martin E. Marty Public Understanding of Religion Award.
JFSR celebrates its anniversary with several special events at AAR/SBL 2014 Annual Meeting in San Diego, November 22–24, 2014. Please join the party if you are attending!
