Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies publication

I am ecstatic that Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies will publish an image from my installation, Surrogate for their special issue on reproductive technology and reproductive justice. In celebration of its fortieth anniversary in 2015, Frontiers will devote one special issue per year for the next five years to reflections on significant events and topics from the past four decades. My work will be included in the 2013 special issue, guest edited by Mytheli Sreenivas, which will commemorate Roe vs. Wade and focus on reproductive rights, reproductive justice, and reproductive technologies. The editorial team thought that my photograph was “quite provocative and striking.” What an honor to be included in one of the oldest and most respected feminist journals in the United States. Hooray for a scholarly publication that embraces feminist and gender conscious artists!
