Sex and Violence: Special Issue of Australian Feminist Studies<http://www.tandfonline.com/action/aboutThisJournal?journalCode=cafs20> Guest Editors: Lisa Featherstone (University of Newcastle) and Amanda Kaladelfos (Griffith University) Feminist scholarship has been foundational to studies of sexual violence and sexual crime. In particular, it has suggested that violence is enacted on sexed bodies through multiple forms: some private, hidden and undisclosed, others occurring in public or sanctioned by the state. Recent work on sex and sexuality has much to offer the study of violence. Yet all too often, broad violence studies have not engaged with the latest scholarship on sexuality. This collection aims to refocus attention on the formative relationship between sex and violence. We ask contributors to consider how examining sexuality, in historical or contemporary perspective, changes and challenges current theories of violence. To what extent, for instance, do they take into account the many forms of gendered, sexual, and homophobic violence? Or the ways these have changed over time? We call for papers which examine the complex and multifaceted relationship between sex and violence, one that often crosses the borders drawn by race, class, gender and sexuality. Contributors could examine the ways legal and scientific ideas about normality and perversity affirmed or renounced violent acts. Other submissions might consider the ways violence is enmeshed within, or challenged by, the social order and how violent acts changed variously across time, space and place.
