Women in Revolutionary Times: Organizing Against Late Capitalism

This special issue of RFR/DRF, an academic, peer-reviewed journal seeks to bring together a collection of feminist voices examining the gendered and racialized relations of late capitalism and its crises. Organized through monopolies and oligolopolies, late capitalism has been described as a casino economy leading to accumulation occuring primarily through financial channels rather than through trade or producing commodities. As financialized accumulation is concentrated into fewer and fewer hands, imperialism and permanent war become dominant features of the globalized economy.

At the personal level, the violences of late capitalism and emerging austerity policies are evident in many ways including casualization of work, rising levels of personal debt, and exposure to social and political turmoil. Housing, food and environmental insecurity threaten the reproductive sphere and at the same time that civic and public infrastructures are eroding, we are witnessing a significant investment into the development of the carceral state. Increasingly drawn into migrant work, women are the subjects of racial profiling, heightened surveillance and regulation.

During a period of global crises women are playing a crucial role in social movements including Idle No More, Arab Spring, Landless Worker Movements, transnational anti-austerity struggles, student movements, Occupy, transnational LTB organizing, and more. The work of women in these movements is revolutionary in that it’s mobilizing transformations to the very relations by which capitalism has been able to reproduce, including relations of property, gender, race, colonialism and sexuality.

RFR/DRF invites papers on a range of topics for our issue on Women in Revolutionary Times. The new extended deadline for submitting a full paper is March 3, 2014.

See Author Guidelines for more submission details.

Submissions for this special issue are to be emailed to Jamie Magnusson at jamielynn.magnusson@utoronto.ca
