Description:

Feral Feminisms, an independent, inter-media, peer reviewed, open access online journal, is currently searching for a Blog Editor to join its Editorial Team. The Blog Editor will spend 2-3 hours per week helping launch and coordinate the new Feral Feminisms blog page. They will be responsible for soliciting contributions to the blog page on a regular basis, pairing authored pieces with artwork and images, sending each blog piece out for copyediting, helping to coordinate the visual aspects of the blog, as well as authoring blog pieces on feminist topics of their choice. This position is an excellent opportunity to gain professional experience with a scholarly feminist journal.

Feral Feminisms is a unique platform for un-taming, queering, and radicalizing feminist thought and practice today. It is committed to creating space for students, scholars, artists, and activists to engage with the many sites and problematics of feminist studies—understood broadly and across disciplines, genres, methods, politics, times, and contexts. The blog will extend the mandate of the Feral Feminisms journal with the goal of providing ongoing feminist coverage of current events, cultural content, and issues of feminist concern, broadly understood. A transnational, anti-racist, and decolonial approach to issues of feminist concern will be encouraged.
