Feminist Studies in Religion Blog (FSR Blog) is the site persona under which collective information is posted.
Similar to the Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion, we welcome a variety of contributions that focus on women’s experience or on gender as a category of analysis, and that further feminist theory, consciousness, and practice as they pertain to a weblog format.
If you would like to submit material for consideration to be posted by FSR Blog, email Blog(at)fsrinc.org.
