The books in this series ask where gender and sexuality are in the events, interactions, and structures of global politics. Individually, they show that studying gender and sexuality adds theoretical and explanatory richness to theorizing. Collectively, they demonstrate that gender-inclusive feminist, queer, and trans work is an essential research program with which scholars, students, and practitioners of global politics should engage, and that research on gender(s) and sexualities is key to understanding a variety of global political phenomena.
Rather than just looking at gender as related to "women's issues" or minoritized populations in global politics, this series combines theoretical and empirical analyses to challenge all International Relations (IR) scholars to take account of gender and sexuality across subject matters in global politics and to push policy-makers to craft better policy by noticing the gendered and sexualized impacts of supposedly "neutral" policies.
The series includes and encourages work addressing genders and sexualities across fields that address global politics, including but not limited to political theory, comparative politics, international political sociology, political economy, security, environmental politics, foreign policy analysis, development studies, postcolonial and decolonial studies, and Black and Indigenous studies.
