Theme Issue: Gendered Injustice in Museum Spaces

DSJ will publish this themed issue focusing on gendered injustice in museum spaces in May 2018. This themed issue seeks to explore the role museum spaces play in promoting or challenging gendered injustice. Gender is not a proxy for woman and female but rather this issue hopes to explore various gendered identities, their intersectionalities and the factors that impact how they are (re)presented in museum spaces.
