Feministische Studien (Journal)


The periodical Feministische Studien (Feminist Studies) is one of the most important interdisciplinary forums for gender research and research on women in German-speaking countries. For the past 25 years, Feministische Studien has participated in debates within the world of research and in the public sphere.

Feministische Studien take a critical stance on social changes. Theme-based volumes on the research on masculinity, such as volume 2/2000 “Männlichkeiten” (“Masculinities”) or volume 2/2006 “Wie Phönix aus der Asche: Die Wiedergeburt des Mannes” (“Like Phoenix from the Ashes: The Rebirth of Man”), on Islam (volume 2/2003 “Debates within Islamic Contexts”) or on the issue of “Childlessness” (volume 1/2005) focus on current and explosive issues.

The printed version of Feministische Studien is published twice a year, in May and November.
