Past and present changes in gender dynamics

Call for Papers

On March 7, 2022, Amnesty International launched an alarm regarding the worldwide “grave erosion of rights” and “global assault on women’s and girls’ dignity” in the wake of events in Afghanistan, Ethiopia, the US, Turkey, and Iran in 2021 and 2022. The UN Working Group has expressed similar concerns, noting that economic crisis, austerity measures, and cultural and religious conservatism has brought about a backlash against gender equality. This backlash has a major impact on people living in poverty and with lower socio-economic status, LGBTIQ+ communities, migrants, ethnic minorities, and people with disabilities, exacerbating pre-existing discrimination. To promote a better awareness of current phenomena, LEA 12 (2023) proposes to investigate gender relationships from the perspective of literary, linguistic, and philological studies.

The call is open until May 8, 2023

Issue Description

LEA publishes Online First Articles. This feature allows final revision articles to be hosted online prior to their inclusion in a final print and online journal issue. 

The only difference between Online First and issue publication will be the citation details and the addition of the Online First publication date to the second version.

Each OnlineFirst article has a unique Digital Object Identifier (DOI). This should be included in all citations. DOIs provide a persistent, permanent way to identify manuscripts published in the online environment, even after they are assigned to the issue. Information such as volume, issue, and page numbers are not allocated to OnlineFirst articles (as that information is not known until the issue is completed).
