Scholars in women’s studies have long been self-reflexive about what it means to become institutionalized within the academy. Feminist Studies articles have charted this institutionalization throughout the history of the field, and especially when doctoral programs were inaugurated in several universities.

Please contact Feminist Studies editorial director Ashwini Tambe (email@example.com) about your questions.
