eTropic: electronic journal of studies in the tropics

The journal eTropic disseminates new research from arts, humanities, social sciences and allied fields on the variety and interrelatedness of nature, culture, and society in tropical regions. eTropic publishes two fully refereed issues per year.


‘Bold Women Write Back’ in this special issue of eTropic!

This first issue for 2018 follows in the wake of last year’s witnessing of international Women’s Marches - with their pink pussy hats – across many parts of the globe and the 2017 International Women’s Day theme ‘Be Bold for Change’.

The issue asks, in a world where women are still excluded from citizen participation, is there a new role for resistance through art and literature? For women of the tropics in particular, in what ways can writing, art, and academic work be bold in helping make needed changes? For women more broadly, what does it mean to be bold right now as oppression intersects race, sex, class, and religion in a world that is repealing rights and advances?
