A special issue of the journal Radical History Review coedited by Associate Professor of American Studies and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Lisa Arellano will be released in September. Titled “Reconsidering Gender, Violence and the State,” the issue brings together a broad range of interdisciplinary scholarship to fulfill the promise of its title as contributors, including Arellano, reconsider how historical conceptions of masculinity and femininity inform the persistence of and punishments for gendered violence. Arellano, one of the three coeditors of the 230-page special edition, is the author of Vigilantes and Lynch Mobs: Narratives of Community and Nation (Temple University Press, 2012.)
