Meridians seeks to publish work that is grounded in the particularities of history, economics, geography, class, and culture; that informs the contradictions and politics of women’s lives; illuminates the forms and meanings of resistance, migration and exile and artistic expressions; that provokes the critical interrogation of the terms used to shape activist agendas, theoretical paradigms, and political coalitions; and that is substantive and readable, as well as relevant and useful to researchers, educators, students, and practitioners.


Guidelines for Contributors

Meridians accepts submissions on a rolling basis. Submissions are reviewed anonymously by members of the Editorial Board and by readers with experience in the appropriate fields. The publishing process usually takes six to nine months.

The Editor of Meridians invites submissions of scholarly essays, personal interviews, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, visual art, and photo-essays, as well as political manifestoes, position papers, and archival documents of continuing interest.

Please do not submit manuscripts or materials that are under review elsewhere or that have been previously published.

Meridians does not accept simultaneous submissions, unsolicited book, film, or video reviews.

You can submit your manuscript through our online portal, Editorial Manager.
