Gender, Technology and Development – Special Issue Call for Papers

The lack of access to clean affordable energy for billions of people around the world has brought energy to the centre stage within the UN System which aims to address the situation through achieving the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7 on energy: to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all by 2030.

There is a growing interest amongst gender scholars in the energy access in both the global South and the North. Taylor & Francis Online’s call reflects that interest.

Taylor & Francis Online particularly welcome submissions which explore, on the basis of empirical evidence, the gender-energy-poverty nexus from both the global South and the North with the following focus:

  • Impacts of the energy system on gender roles and relations
  • Outcomes of gender approaches (or the role of women) in the supply of energy
  • Gendered political economy of the energy sector, including energy sector reform
  • Productive uses of energy from a gender perspective
  • Gender approaches for scaling-up energy access

Please note that the special issue will not focus on improved cook stoves, although submitted abstracts on this theme may be considered for a general edition of the journal.
