The ADVANCE Journal has recently published a special issue devoted to brief essays that address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on faculty women across race/ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, national origin, ability, age, and other forms of social difference from both personal and research perspectives (https://www.advancejournal.org/section/2102-volume-2-issue-2).
We invite submissions for a second issue that address the ongoing challenges of the pandemic. We invite personal narratives, opinion pieces, and research essays. We’re interested in how the pandemic is affecting faculty women, especially women in STEM fields, in terms of research productivity, mentoring, promotion and tenure, running labs, writing and publishing, teaching, service, family life, stress, isolation, and so on. We want to hear about successful strategies, areas for improvement, institutional failings and successes, and possibilities for the future. We are especially interested in learning about institutional strategies and results for addressing issues raised by the pandemic—tenure clocks, teaching loads and locations, teaching evaluations, grant-writing and implementation, lab operations, graduate student research supervision, publication expectations, childcare, family leave, and the like.
Essays should be 800-1500 words. To submit: https://www.advancejournal.org/for-authors.
For questions, email co-editors Susan Shaw at email@example.com or Janet Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org or Managing Editor Kali Furman at email@example.com.

Over the past two decades, transgender studies has become fertile ground for new approaches to cultural analysis. TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly offers a high-profile venue for innovative research and scholarship that contest the objectification, pathologization, and exoticization of transgender lives. It publishes interdisciplinary work that explores the diversity of gender, sex, sexuality, embodiment, and identity in ways that have not been adequately addressed by feminist and queer scholarship. Its mission is to foster a vigorous conversation among scholars, artists, activists, and others that examines how “transgender” comes into play as a category, a process, a social assemblage, an increasingly intelligible gender identity, an identifiable threat to gender normativity, and a rubric for understanding the variability and contingency of gender across time, space, and cultures. Major topics addressed in the first few issues include the cultural production of trans communities, critical analysis of transgender population studies, transgender biopolitics, radical critiques of political economy, and problems of translating gender concepts and practices across linguistic communities.
