Feminist Formations held a special event at the University of Arizona in early September to celebrate the release of the first journal issue since the new editorial team fully took over the publication. Feminist Formations, which is publishing its 24th volume, moved from the University of Minnesota to the University of Arizona last year. Editor Sandra K. Soto, Associate Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies at Arizona, welcomed staff from JHUP to Tucson for the event and talked about the celebration and the journal’s future.

Feminist Formations released a special issue “Women in the Middle East.” The idea for the special issue came from a March 2008 conference on related issues at Marmara University in Istanbul, Turkey. A group of guest editors worked over three years to bring the issue to fruition. Nawal Ammar, Professor and Dean of the Faculty of Social Science and Humanities at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and one of the driving forces behind the issue, discusses the issue and its impact on female scholars from the Middle East.
