Special Issue: Gender and Climate Justice

Co-edited by Lori Lee Oates (Memorial University of Newfoundland) and Sritama Chatterjee (University of Pittsburgh)

This special issue of Atlantis Journal takes an intersectional approach to gender and climate justice. We invite work that explores a range of topics, including but not limited to:

• What should climate justice look like for women, trans people, and non-binary people?

• What is the role of masculinity in the climate crisis?

• What is ecofeminism in the contemporary world and what is its role in climate justice? How does ecofeminism relate to queer justice for the environment?

• What do queer and trans ecologies look like at present? How is this limiting for climate justice? What should they look like?

• What does disaster planning for the elderly and disabled look like? What should it look like to achieve true climate justice?

• How do historical colonial patterns of gender and racial inequality persist into the present and what does this mean for the climate crisis? Where are the intersections between race and gender?

• What are the links between climate justice movements and reproductive freedom activists? What should they be?

• What is petroleum patriarchy and where does it exist? How can it be addressed? Will a transition off fossil fuels be sufficient to address it?

• What are the limits of the politics of “the Anthropocene” for climate justice?

• How are gender and climate justice reflected in literature and arts?

• What kind of pedagogies are necessary to address gender and climate justice?

This call invites individuals to submit research articles (up to 7,000 words), literary writing (up to 3,000 words), and book reviews (up to 1,000 words). The editors are particularly interested in hearing from scholars and writers from the global south, Indigenous communities, queer and trans scholars, and those who engage with feminist or environmental activism. We envision this special issue as a forum both for acknowledging the urgency of the situation and presenting solutions from voices that are often excluded from the conversation. Please read full submission guidelines on our website before submitting.
