Description
The collection contains the general office and editorial files for Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies, a scholarly journal edited by Kathi George. The journal was first published by the Women's Studies Program of the University of Colorado, Boulder, later by the Women's Studies Programs of the University of New Mexico and Washington State University, and finally by the University of Nebraska Press. Material for volume 17 of the journal is not included in the collection.
Background
Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies began publication in 1975. The original Editorial Collective chose the title to symbolize the new territories of feminist scholarship and accomplishment the journal planned to explore. Furthermore, the word sounded "western," appropriate for a journal published in Colorado. Since 1975, however, understandings of frontiers have changed. What we now mean by "frontiers" are zones of interaction between two or more different cultures. Following Gloria Anzaldua, we revision frontiers from boundary to borderlands, a concept especially suitable to our interdisciplinary and multicultural feminist purpose.
