Sprinkle, a peer-reviewed undergraduate Feminist and Queer Studies journal originally conceived in 2007 as a collection of student works from the McGill Sexual Diversity Studies course, seeks academic submissions for the Spring 2016 edition. Papers should be no more than 3000 words in length, in APA format, and show critical engagement with issues of gender and sexuality from all disciplines. We encourage submissions to explore the intersection of gender and sexuality with other social identities (race, class, dis/ability, etc.), however this is not required. We may also consider a small number of creative submissions (i.e. poetry, short stories, etc.).
