FYI. CfP: Special issue of Stigma and Health – Intersectionality


Call for Papers: Intersectionality in Stigma and Health Research A Special Issue of Stigma and Health

Special Issue Editor: Nicole M. Else-Quest, PhD

Stigma and Health welcomes submissions for consideration in a special issue on new and innovative research incorporating intersectionality in the study of stigma and physical and mental health.

Intersectionality is increasingly invoked and analyzed in psychological science, particularly in research with people from historically excluded or minoritized groups. It is often used to focus attention on members of multiply-marginalized groups (e.g., women with disabilities), who may be made invisible when social categories or dimensions are analyzed independently or in isolation and without context.

While the research topics in the special issue will be diverse to reveal the broad scope of possibilities for intersectionality, articles must share an explicitly intersectional approach and lens. The issue will be structured around three foci:

  • Intersectional concepts and measurement
  • Giving voice to multiply-marginalized groups
  • Empowerment and evaluation

Deadline: February 1, 2022

Please contact the special issue editor, Nicole Else-Quest, with all questions.
