Mary Caputi, New Editor of Politics and Gender
“I believe that there is more richness and resonance surrounding both the terms “politics” and “gender” that can be explored in ways that widen the purview of topics of interest to an untapped reading audience. Both terms operate on numerous levels and carry an amplitude of layered meanings. My job as editor would be to seek out articles that explore those levels of meaning both within and beyond the conventional understanding of how politics and gender interrelate.” – Mary Caputi
