About the Latest Volume
Volume 17: Notions of Family: Intersectional Perspectives
Editors: Marla H. Kohlman, Dana B. Krieg, Bette J. Dickerson
Published: 18th February 2013
"Notions of Family: Intersectional Perspectives" presents new and original research on gender and the institution of family featuring both quantitative and qualitative analyses. The objective of this volume is to present a framework for understanding the ways in which the salient identities of gender, class position, race, sexuality, and other demographic characteristics function simultaneously to produce the outcomes we observe in the lives of individuals as integral forces in the maintenance of family.

Advances in Gender Research seeks to encourage empirical and theoretical gender scholarship worldwide in order to further the understanding of gender and to promote the application of this understanding to the solution of social problems and the achievement of equality locally and globally.
Advances in Gender Research recognizes thatgender intersects with other social structures, including, but not limited to race/ethnicity, sexuality, citizenship, social class, age, and (dis)ability; and with various institutions, including, but not limited to the family, the state, the economy, the media, and education. The series seeks manuscripts that explore these intersections.
Advances in Gender Research provides a venue for scholars, researchers and practitioners at all stages of their careers and from all parts of the globe to explore gender-related issues from feminist perspectives. The series:
· encourages dialogue across social science and humanities disciplines;
· makes the latest gender scholarship available to those who may apply it, especially grassroots activists and practitioners in the social services;
· while representing the cutting edge of related scholarship, is accessible to those new to the field or those interested in gaining an overview of some aspect of the field; and
· is an ideal venue for papers on gender that are of a traditional journal-article length, as well as extended essays that explore topics in greater depth.
Advances in Gender Research encourages contributions and readership from scholars, researchers and practitioners globally. Audiences include both those who are currently involved in gender scholarship or its application as well as those who wish to learn how gender intersects with and structures those other aspects of society with which they are primarily concerned.
Advances in Gender Research seeks well-written articles that place current or historical data in context, critically review the literature in gender-related subfields, provide new theoretical or methodological insights or assess the impact of social actions, programs or movements. The series includes articles that are theoretical, empirical or applied, dealing with any nation or region, or taking a comparative perspective. The series recognizes that gender research is increasingly theoretically and methodologically interdisciplinary and intersectional; and encourages and supports these trends. Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Gender and work and occupations
- Gender and health, medicine, and reproduction
- Gendered sexualities
- Feminist frameworks, methods, and praxis
- Gender in global and local perspective
- Gender in various social institutions including the academy, the family, the state
- Gender and social movements
- Gender and migration and immigration
- Gendered violence
- Gendered bodies
- History of gender scholarship
