Femspec, a peer-reviewed journal, is interested in developing a community of like-minded people engaged in speculating, theorizing, creating and questioning gender across the boundaries, including issues of sexual orientation. We emphasize interdisciplinary approaches, and encourage work on teaching as well as literary, cultural criticism and creative material. We hope an approach to pedagogy will bring in work from a wider area of disciplines. We are interested in a variety of feminisms aim to be inclusive of ethnic and cultural diversity in an internationalist perspective. We are committed to publishing experimental feminist prose and poetic works which experiment across media. Our impetus came from the collectively perceived lack of attention to SF, fantasy, magical realism and supernatural works in feminist journals and audiences; the lack of consistently evolving developed levels of feminism in SF criticism; and the inadequacy of magical realism publishing outlets in the U.S.
