Vol. 2 No. 1 (2023): Embodied: The Stanford Undergraduate Journal of Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

Embodied is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal at Stanford focusing on themes of feminism, gender, and sexuality. Founded in 2021, Embodied is a student-run initiative dedicated to facilitating discussion, inquiry, and scholarship in this historically overlooked field. The journal publishes original research, as well as academic papers, features, editorials, creative writing, and multimedia pieces. It welcomes submissions from undergraduates and co-terminal students at all academic institutions. Submission is not exclusive to Stanford affiliates.

This is only Embodied's second issue, but this journal has continued to grow. Repeatedly, our team has been amazed by the talent, passion, and dedication of students around the world in this field. 

A special thanks to Stanford's Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies for supporting this project. An additional thank you to our journal's wonderful editorial team.
