MISSION

Meridians is a peer-reviewed, feminist, interdisciplinary journal whose goal is to provide a forum for the finest scholarship and creative work by and about women of color in U.S. and international contexts. The journal is a venture of Smith College and is published by Indiana University Press.


Recognizing that feminism, race, transnationalism and women of color are contested terms, Meridians engages the complexity of these debates in a dialogue across ethnic and national boundaries, as well as across traditional disciplinary boundaries in the academy. The goal of Meridians is to make scholarship by and about women of color central to global and U.S. economic conditions, their political practices, the articulation of histories, geographies, cultures, and sexualities, as well as the forms and meanings of resistance and activist strategies.

Meridians is guided by a local editorial group of Smith faculty members and by an international editorial board who are leading scholars activists, and artists, including Edna Acosta-Belén, Leila Ahmed, Ama Ata Aidoo, Amrita Basu, Rey Chow, Maryse Condé, Angela Davis, Cynthia Enloe, Paula Giddings, Wilma Mankiller, Toni Morrison, Nell Painter, Elena Poniatowska, Nawal El Saadawi, and Vandana Shiva, among others.

From the founding editors:

"The focus of our attention is women in movement: geographically and economically, in migration and diaspora; politically, in both local and transnational patterns of organization and coalition; and intellectually, in theoretical transformations produced by these new transnational realities."
