Crossings: Swarthmore Undergraduate Feminist Research Journal

Crossings is an open-access undergraduate interdisciplinary research journal that provides a forum for discourse on feminist theory and scholarship. The title is inspired by M. Jacqui Alexander’s Pedagogies of Crossing, which takes as its basis the concept of the Middle Passage, the Crossing, to understand Black transnational feminism’s erosion of boundaries —disciplinary conventions, respectability politics, national borders, and bodies that are gendered, sexualized, and racialized, among others kinds of categories— in relation to empire and postmodernity.
