Call for Papers: Feminist Gift Economy

Canadian Woman Studies/les cahiers de la femme:

Feminist Gift Economy Theorizing and Practice:  A Matricentric Alternative to Patriarchy

32.1 (Summer/Fall 2016)

Deadline:  January 30, 2016

The aim of this issue of CWS/cf is to recognize and give value to unilateral gifting and to explore the new theoretical and practical understandings and political possibilities uncovered by the recognition of its maternal roots. The study of Indigenous gift economies in the West denies the importance of direct unilateral giving and some have even questioned its existence. However a great deal of unilateral giving is called for in the practice of care by mothers, who are usually women but can also be men, other children, or entire villages.
