New Collection of Research on Menstruation and Representation

March 11th, 2011 by Elizabeth Kissling

A special issue of the scholarly journal Women’s Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal has just been published, featuring several pieces about menstruation, media representation, and the ways we talk about it. You can see the table of contents here, as well as purchase individual articles (or the whole collection, for $146.17). Several of these papers were presented at the 2009 meeting of the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research, and the special issue also includes several new poems, visual work, and book reviews.

  1. If 10 other people wanted to chip in $14.617 US, we could share a copy.

    On the other hand, it’s so much fun sending $14 to Wisconsin recall efforts (such is life in a Red Collar Town). And Michigan Gov. recall can start in July. More red collar fun, hey!

    Yeah, sorry about that outrageous price. Having access to a fairly decent academic library makes it easy to forget how expensive academic journals are. I should be receiving my personal copy of this special issue any day now, so let me know if there’s anything in it you’d like to see.

Readers should note that statements published in Menstruation Matters are those of individual authors and do not necessarily reflect the positions of the Society as a whole.
