The Spring 2013 issue of Signs features the winner of the 2013 Stimpson Prize and much more.
The Summer 2013 issue of Signs—a thematic issue titled “Intersectionality: Theorizing Power, Empowering Theory,” guest edited by Sumi Cho, Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, and Leslie McCall—brings together numerous strands of intersectional scholarship, simultaneously taking stock of the diverse field of intersectionality studies and forging new directions for the production of future insurgent knowledges. It offers a snapshot of the dynamic and expanding disciplinary, geographical, and theoretical range of intersectionality studies, highlighting the manifold ways intersectionality can be understood and practiced.

“Visibility and Visuality: Reframing Gender in the Middle East, North Africa, and Their Diasporas” is a virtual issue of Signs (open access for a limited time) produced in collaboration with the Rutgers Institute for Women and Art in celebration of the Fertile Crescent: Art, Gender, and Society project.
