2015 Symonds Essay Prize on Gender and Sexuality

2015 Symonds Essay Prize on Gender and Sexuality

Studies in Gender and Sexuality, invites submissions to its annual competition for the best previously unpublished essay on gender and/or sexuality.
Studies in Gender and Sexuality is one of the leading journals in the transdisciplinary field of gender and sexuality studies. Situated at the interface of psychoanalysis and social/cultural theory, it aims to further our understanding of how we live, theorize and transform genders and sexualities.
Now in its 16th year, SGS has continued to publish a wide range of critical perspectives on gender and sexuality. It has a particular (though not exclusive) interest in approaches that use psychoanalysis to complicate and deepen our conceptualizations of gender and sexualities, whilst using theories of gender and sexuality to complicate psychoanalytic theory and practice. In doing so, SGS opens debates about the tensions between subjective and affective life and social and political formations.

Clinical, critical, empirical or theoretical questions that relate to gender and/or sexuality.
