Although traditionally silent on gender, the past decade witnessed the increasing utilization of gender lenses - and in particular diverse feminist theories - to elucidate the gendered workings of post-conflict transitions.

However, while gender perspectives have become a burgeoning focus of analysis in the field of transitional justice, the dominant conceptualization of 'gender' in scholarship and practice on dealing with the past effectively remains a limited one - exclusive of masculinities perspectives as well as the experiences and voices of sexual and gender minorities. To remedy this research gap, Brandon Hamber, Philipp Schulz and Heleen Touquet are putting together an edited volume on masculinities and queer perspectives in transitional justice, and are currently inviting abstract submissions.

The full call for papers is The CfP is found at, and abstracts are due on 15 September 2019, to be sent to Philipp Schulz.
