This series is concerned with the intersections of gender and sexuality with multiple forms of identity and social organization, including age, class, race, religion and ethnicity, among others. We invite works that explore these intersections by authors who hold experience up to more than one analytic lens in order to arrive at more complicated and nuanced understandings of gender and sexuality.

To this end, we seek authors capable of writing for an audience in and beyond their own discipline. One of the central virtues of truly transdisciplinary work is that it is framed in a way that is accessible to readers in various fields, uses a variety of methods and narrative techniques, and incorporates theoretical insights from a wide range of academic disciplines. In short, the Intersections: Transdisciplinary Perspectives on Genders and Sexualities series encourages the exploration of new ways of thinking about gender and sexuality, provoking the imaginative reconstruction of the concepts themselves.
