Each issue is devoted to a theme that is particularly relevant to contemporary women and is re-examined within different cultures and societies often far removed in time and space.</p> <p>The aim of each monographic issue is to trace back women’s individual and collective itineraries analysing&nbsp;&nbsp;their material and symbolic worlds against the backdrop of various&nbsp;geographic, socio-political, cultural and religious&nbsp;&nbsp;contexts.&nbsp;<em>Storia delle donne&nbsp;</em>is set out in two sections –&nbsp;<em>Passato&nbsp;</em>[Past] and&nbsp;<em>Presente&nbsp;</em>[Present] – in order to achieve continuity and discontinuity within a political perspective that takes gender studies into account, and is always sensitive to collective values.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>La rivista&nbsp;<strong><em>Storia delle Donne</em></strong>&nbsp;nasce dalla collaborazione di studiose specialiste di epoche e discipline diverse – formate in scuole di varie università italiane – e si propone come pubblicazione ad alto contenuto scientifico.&nbsp;<em>SdD</em>&nbsp;ha periodicità annuale, i numeri sono tematici e quasi del tutto privi di rubriche in ragione della scelta redazionale di presentare ciascun fascicolo come un&nbsp;<em>unicum</em>&nbsp;perché meglio siano colte, messe a fuoco e sviluppate l’evidenza e l’importanza dell’argomento proposto.<br>L’idea che è a fondamento del progetto&nbsp;<em>SdD</em>&nbsp;guarda al nesso tra storia e politica&nbsp;<em>delle</em>&nbsp;donne, ma accorda priorità a quello fra storia e politiche&nbsp;<em>per le</em>&nbsp;donne e&nbsp;<em>con le</em>&nbsp;donne; questa è una delle ragioni per cui la scelta del tema dei fascicoli è dettata dai processi in atto e dalle urgenze che la contemporaneità propone.<br>Il tema viene sviluppato nella sezione «Presente» da contributi che lo illustrano con incroci di approccio e metodo volutamente pluridisciplinari, senza che questo identifichi&nbsp;<em>SdD</em>&nbsp;con l’interdisciplinarietà degli&nbsp;<em>Women’s Studies</em>. Nella sezione «Passato» i saggi restituiscono lo spessore storico e diacronico nella&nbsp;<em>longue durée</em>&nbsp;che si snoda dalle civiltà antiche fino al Novecento. È stata prevista anche una sezione intitolata «Oltre il tema» dove vengono ospitati gli articoli di taglio rigorosamente storico, ma eccentrici rispetto al tema del fascicolo.<br><em>SdD</em>&nbsp;riserva particolare attenzione alle ricerche di giovani studiose e studiosi. In tutte e due le sezioni potranno essere pubblicate parti di tesi di laurea o di tesi di dottorato ed anche studi da queste indipendenti.</p> <p>Tutti i testi pubblicati in SdD sono valutati, secondo le modalità del doppio cieco (<em>double blind peer review</em>), da due&nbsp;<em>referees</em>&nbsp;individuati nell'ambito di un'ampia cerchia di specialiste e specialisti.</p> https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/9035 Donne in rivista 2020-06-18T12:59:21+00:00 La Redazione null@null.com <p>.</p> 2020-06-17T13:11:08+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 La Redazione https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/9036 «Awa» et autres revues féminines en Afrique francophone: par-delà les lieux communs 2020-06-18T12:59:17+00:00 Silvia Riva silvia.riva@unimi.it <p class="p1">The article takes into consideration women’s magazines published in French-speaking Africa during the colonial period and immediately after the Independences. In addition to offering an overview of the more or lesser-known publications (in particular «Awa: la revue de la femme noire»), it focuses on some prejudices that have so far prevented us from considering the French-speaking African women’s press as a fundamental element to understand the international feminist planetary movement. The careful reading of «Awa: la revue de la femme noire», made available thanks to the digitization and online publication of all the issues, shows in fact avant-garde positions, dissidents, and active participation in a cosmopolitan community that, in the Sixties and Seventies, had much to say to our contemporaneity.</p> 2020-06-17T13:11:50+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Silvia Riva https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/9037 L’Homme.

European Journal of Feminist History», initiated by the well-known Austrian historian Edith Saurer in 1990, within the broader frame of similar journal founded in the 1990’s. It then explains the choice of the title «L’Homme» and describes the changing concept, aims and contents of the journal, which not only includes historical articles (often translated from other European languages) but also comments on contemporary issues of feminism, and debates on gender inequality. The journal and its accompanying book series, «L’Homme Schriften», are currently edited by 18 scholars from 8 European countries – thus indeed representing a common European publication project.</p> 2020-06-17T13:12:29+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Christa Hämmerle, Michaela Hafner https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/9038 «Feminist Studies» 2020-06-18T12:59:07+00:00 Ashwini Tambe atambe@umd.edu Brittany Fremaux null@null.com <p class="p1"><em>«</em>Feminist Studies<em>»</em> is an interdisciplinary women’s studies journal, first published in 1972: the oldest US journal of Women’s Studies. It is an English-language, peer-reviewed journal, publishing three issues annually in print and electronic form. Although housed at the University of Maryland, it is independent, and one of the few academic journals that is not owned by a university press. «Feminist Studies» appeared when groups of feminists scholars and activists came together in order to create a scholarly journal with high scholarly standards. This feminist network believed that the women’s movement needed an analytical forum to engage the issues raised by the movement. This is still the journal’s mission. The title was chosen to indicate that the content of the journal would be both scholarly and political, and foreground women as a social group and gender as a category of analysis. The editorial board about a dozen academics strives wants to embody the feminist ideal of collectivity through shared work engagement and responsibility.&nbsp;</p> 2020-06-17T13:13:15+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Ashwini Tambe, Brittany Fremaux https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/9039 «Revista Estudos Feministas»: uma trajetória de desafios 2020-06-18T12:59:04+00:00 Cristina Scheibe Wolff cristiwolff@gmail.com <p class="p1">This article presents a history and an analysis of «Revista Estudos Feministas» («REF»), published by Federal University of Santa Catarina, in Brazil. «REF» is today the main journal in gender studies, feminisms and sexualities fields in Brazil, and one of the most important in Latin America. The article tells about its beginning, in Rio de Janeiro, and how it became published by Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina since 1999. To maintain a journal like «REF», with quality and frequency, imposes challenges that encompass technical issues and political matters, especially in contemporary Brazil.

From its inception, two thematic issues of three hundred pages each have been published every year, and the journal will soon publish its 50th issue and celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2020.

Segunda Época: Revista de Estudios de la Mujer» is the first Women’s Studies magazine collectively edited by three national universities in the República Argentina. It was born in 1996 with the co-direction of Nélida Bonaccorsi of the Universidad Nacional del Comahue; María Herminia Di Liscia of the Universidad Nacional de La Pampa, and Cecilia Lagunas of the Universidad Nacional de Luján. From the beginning, an annual volume has been published reflecting the results of research and actions carried out within the framework of Gender Studies and Women’s History. The articles published by the journal always aim to deconstruct validated hegemonic discourses as unique and true, and to a critical stance the dogmas legitimized by cultures and societies. Two of the journal’s important objectives are to promote studies from a perspective that rescues women’s voices, experiences and testimonies on the one hand; and on the other, to impact socially through the organization and dissemination of activities that promote the modification of sexist and patriarchal cultural patterns.</p> 2020-06-17T13:17:31+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Cecilia Lagunas, Marta Carrario, Mónica Morales https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/9044 «Feminist Africa»: A Pan-African Feminist Publication for the 21st Century 2020-06-18T12:58:45+00:00 Amina Mama amama@ucdavis.edu <p class="p1">This article presents a personal account of the experience of «Feminist Africa», the continent’s leading journal of gender and women’s studies scholarship and feminist activism. The philosophical rationale for an African publication is explained, and the conditions under which it was established detailed. «Feminist Africa» was founded at the turn of the century, to become the collective property of the founding community of feminists working on the frontlines of change across African educational, political, cultural institutions. As an open-access digital publication, «Feminist Africa» preserves its editorial freedom closely, by activating and utilizing the free intellectual labour of the community of feminists on the continent. Hosted at the University of Cape Town’s African Gender Institute for the first fifteen years (2002-2017), «Feminist Africa» has moved to the Institute of African Studies at the University of Ghana, with a view of launching a second phase in 2020.</p> 2020-06-17T13:18:14+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Amina Mama https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/9045 «Eugesta», electronic journal of gender studies in Antiquity 2020-06-24T09:05:04+00:00 Jacqueline Fabre-Serris jacqueline.fabre-serris@wanadoo.fr Judith P.

It was created in 2011 in connection with the research network of the same name, the “European Network on Gender Studies in Antiquity”. The journal is published in Open Access and hosted on the site of the University of Lille. Promoting multilingualism, «Eugesta», is conceived as a virtual meeting place between North American and European studies on Gender: it aims to provide them a higher level of visibility and to encourage reciprocal readings and productive interrelations among engaged researchers.

Following an interdisciplinary approach, an innovative research project (ERA - Ecology of Ancient Rome) –whose promising scientific perspectives emerged during the I Colloquium ERA: <em>The ecological awareness in Ancient Rome: origin and evolution </em>(Florence, November 6-7, 2019)– tries to analyse different historical orientations in environmental matters from ancient Rome to Modern Age. Starting from the project’s theme, this paper focuses on the relationship between “gender question” and “environmental question” as well as on the historical reading of the relationship between woman and nature, in order to highlight the limits of the approach to environmental culture still based on categories inspired by discriminatory models.</p> 2020-06-17T13:19:42+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Cecilia Pedrazza Gorlero
