Recognized as the leading international journal in women’s and gender studies, Signs is at the forefront of new directions in feminist scholarship. Challenging the boundaries of knowledge concerning women’s and men’s lives in diverse regions of the globe, Signs publishes scholarship that raises new questions and develops innovative approaches to our understanding of the past and present. What makes feminist scholarship published in Signs distinctive is not necessarily the subject of investigation or particular methods of inquiry but the effort to cultivate alternative research practices that further feminist, queer, and antiracist goals of social transformation.
Signs publishes pathbreaking articles, review essays, comparative perspectives, and retrospectives of interdisciplinary interest addressing gender, race, culture, class, nation, and sexuality. Whether critical, theoretical, or empirical, articles published in Signs generate theories, concepts, analytical categories, and methodological innovations that enable new ways of thinking, new ways of seeing, and new ways of living.
Signs is published by the University of Chicago Press. The editorial office for the journal is located at Northeastern University and sponsored by the College of Social Science and Humanities and the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program.
Signs is currently edited by Suzanna Danuta Walters, and Carla Kaplan serves as Chair of the Board of Associate Editors. For a discussion of the editorial vision of the journal, see Walters’s inaugural editorial, “Thinking and Doing Feminism.”
