Studies in Feminist Philosophy

feministOxford University Press’s Studies in Feminist Philosophy is designed to showcase cutting-edge monographs and collections that display the full range of feminist approaches to philosophy, that push feminist thought in important new directions, and that display the outstanding quality of feminist philosophical thought.


Authors interested in pursuing publication in the series would standardly contact either me, or the OUP editor for this series, Lucy Randall (, with a book prospectus and a complete, or largely complete, draft of the manuscript.  Although the series is devoted primarily to monographs, proposals for collections are also considered. Prospective editors of collections would standardly submit a book prospectus with abstracts for initial evaluation. I welcome suggestions for philosophers doing interesting feminist work who might be encouraged to keep Studies in Feminist Philosophy in Mind.
