Women Talking Politics

Click here to read Issue 1 December 2014.

Women Talking Politics is a network promoting communication between women, their research and events across Aotearoa/NZ and beyond. It is designed to promote communication between women working in national and international politics, political theory, public policy, political communication and other related disciplines. It includes women teaching, researching or actively engaged in women’s issues. As such it will showcase short pieces about research, news and events around a range of these topics.

Women Talking Politics has been an important source of articles, news and discussion about political thought and action written by women since 1987. Temporarily suspended in 2009, after the Christchurch earthquakes, it was brought back at the 2014 NZPSA Conference in December as a new Research Magazine. The Magazine will be produced annually and will contain articles, book reviews, conference reports, notice of upcoming conferences and lists of resources useful for the study of politics.

The Editors welcome contributions of articles, book reviews, conference news and useful resources. We are calling for either news items of 200-300 words or 800-1000 word research notes, which will be blind peer reviewed. News items are due on November 1, 2015 while research notes are due on October 1, 2015. We welcome submissions from NZPSA members and non-members, postgraduate students, activists, politicians, practitioners, teachers and academics.

Submission guidelines are as follows:
– Research notes should be 800 – 1,000 words in length.
– Please provide an appropriate title for the article.
– Harvard citation style with a full bibliography at the end of the article. (For a guide to the Harvard citation style, see http://www.library.auckland.ac.nz/subject-guides/ref/harvard.htm)
– Provide full name, title, and institutional affiliation.

Please send news items and research notes to Amee Parker at the following email address: robam453@student.otago.ac.nz.

The first two issues of Women Talking Politics are supported by the NZPSA’s Bi-annual Grant.
