Te Ira Tangata: Pay Equity in Aotearoa – Call for submissions.

Te Ira Tangata is a peer reviewed, interdisciplinary journal setting new agendas for feminism, gender equality, and activism in Aotearoa. The journal invites critical reflections and celebrations of research, teaching, and activism that are supportive of the Tertiary Education Union’s commitment to progressing gender equality and the empowerment of all women.

Issue 4 is planned as a special issue to highlight the extensive mahi that has gone before and continues by researchers, policy makers, and workers to redress pay inequity in Aotearoa. The Editorial Team invites writers to submit histories of pay equity campaigns, profiles of prominent pay equity activists, and analysis of the legislative, organisational, and union strategies that can and have been undertaken to redress pay inequity, as well as pieces that explore the intersectional, individual, and collective outcomes of undervaluing work that is predominantly undertaken by women, Māori, Pasifika, and other marginalised groups of workers.

Te Ira Tangata publishes short academic articles and research notes presenting original research (1000-3000 words). In addition, experimental creative pieces, visual and textual media, accounts of political interventions and union activism, literature reviews, book reviews, interviews, short stories, poems, profiles of feminist activists, and photographic essays are all welcome.

We are particularly interested in submissions which have an action-oriented focus, and which consider the unique context of Aotearoa. However, submissions exploring relevant issues within a global setting are also very welcome.

Submission guidelines are available here.

The submission deadline for Issue 4 is 16 September 2022.
