About Praxis Editors, Advisory Board, & Staff Submissions

Praxis: Gender & Cultural Critiques (formerly Phoebe: Gender & Cultural Critiques) creates a space for the interchange of perspectives, ideas and new research on gender, race, sexuality and their intersections with culture(s). Praxis invokes certain traditions we have always recognized: feminist, Marxist, Freireian on wedding theory to practice as instruments of social liberation. Centering these approaches at this juncture in history appears necessary when struggles across the globe around gender, sexuality, worker’s rights, the environment, democracy and intersections of all of these, have assumed great urgency. Praxis continues the Phoebe commitment to providing a space for all disciplines and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of shifting meanings of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity and class, and their intersections, past and present. Praxis maintains our tradition of providing space for emerging as well as mature scholars and for creative reflections in poetry, short fiction and visual representation.



Praxis is an international peer refereed journal published twice annually, Spring and Fall, by the Women’s & Gender Studies and Africana & Latino Studies Departments at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Oneonta. Praxis, to further the free exchange of ideas, will publish positions or statements which the editors neither agree with nor endorse.
