Call for Submission - FLUID 2 - GSC NEWSLETTER 2022 - 24 September 2022

‘FLUID’ is a bi-annual student-run e-newsletter released by The Gender Studies Committee, School of Law, CHRIST (Deemed to be) University.

Fluid began with a simple idea. As 20-something students building and exploring our identities in an increasingly feminist world, we wanted a platform to talk about what this means to us and the world in a way that tried to blend both the academic with the visceral. And with the beginning of a new academic year, Fluid, your quintessential feminist newsletter is back, now larger than ever.

For this newsletter, we want contributors to look at the world from a feminist eye – beyond classroom discourse – to analyze and examine everyday gendered tasks, be it gendered classroom seating or gendered binary dress codes and put them in words. This is a one-stop safe space for you to tell us your stories, ideas, experiences, and opinions. Dysphoria, dysmorphia, expansively envelop human beings across the lines of gender, caste, class, creed, color, and every other possible division you can think of in this diverse, diverse world. Most of the time, it isn't like we're completely and utterly lost about these, either. We know conditioning happens, and we also know how subtle it can be. So, this newsletter is an attempt to actively acknowledge, identify, mobilize and express against this conditioning. Because at the end of the day, everything is gendered and it is our responsibility to, if nothing else - see it.

Please note that although every edition has a theme, submissions to the newsletter can revolve around any feminist discourse and gender diaspora.

The theme for our second edition is ‘The Economics of Feminism’. They say the world revolves around money. In this edition, we explore what it means to be a gender minority in a privatised, capitalist world that runs on power structures that are seemingly set in stone (and are inherently patriarchal).

Given below are sub-topics that can be referred to for submissions:
- Understanding Care Economy in the Global South perspective
- Economic Analysis of Patriarchal Power Structures
- Exploring the Co-existence of Women’s Rights and Capitalism
- Financial Independence of Women: Drafting Inclusive Fiscal Policy
- Feminist Economic Perspectives on International Law
- Economics of Commercial Sex Work
- Inclusion of Transgender and Nonbinary Persons in the Workforce
- The Dynamics of Women and Gender Minorities in Leadership
- Decoding the Economics of NCM members in the Sports Industry

Note: The above sub-themes are not exhaustive. Submissions can be made on any topic aligning with the main theme.
