En-Gender started out as a journal, but it is much more now. We have a working paper series, a blog, a network of researchers, readings lists and yearly conferences.

En-Gender aims on establishing an international community for the study of gender in the cultural studies, social sciences and humanities. We especially want to create a joint community for undergraduate and postgraduate scholars on gender.
We do not want your essays and papers to disappear in the maelstrom of standardised neoliberal academia. The aim is to make your projects, essays, term papers, bachelor and master theses, conferences and workshop papers with innovative approaches and questions of gender accessible to a wider public.
We want to offer young academics the opportunity to publish their first own work and also to gain expertise in peer reviewing and editing publications.
We were inspired to produce the journal as we felt there was a space needed for a theoretical gender approach in historical and various interdisciplinary works. We chose to organise ourselves as a collective in order to avoid academic hierarchy and to open the journal to a wide range of international contributions from the senior undergraduate and postgraduate community. As a collective we reflect on the wider societal relevance of our research; we believe, as students, we can make valuable contributions to debates in our field of studies.
- We, as a collective, established the journal on the basis of providing a space for international, interdisciplinary work on gender and sexuality:
- We are dedicated to examining gender across space and time, whilst understanding the meaning of gender depends on its historical and social context; the same can be said for sexuality and patriarchy.
- We encourage contribution from a variety of subjects. We maintain that an interdisciplinary approach is the future of academic culture.
- We hope to create an international community of senior undergraduate and postgraduate scholars committing their research to gender analysis.
- This is why we welcome submissions in English as well as encourage other languages!
