This special issue of the Dutch Journal of Feminist Studies on feminist critique and epistemic habits focuses critically on current discussions within the field of gender studies and the state of feminist critique. The editors are looking for submissions that identify, discuss, air, and interrogate the topical question of critique and its relation to feminist knowledge production. The theme issue aims to address questions such as:
- How is critique currently understood, defined, envisioned and practiced within feminist academic frameworks.
- What is at stake in the politics of feminist knowledge production when it comes to unravelling its epistemological foundations?
- What role does, for example, suspicion, deconstruction, de-familiarisation, destabilisation, denaturalisation, and antinormativity have as analytical concepts, and methods of feminist critique?
- What about affirmation, affect and the politics of temporality and futurity?
