About the Journal

Identities: Journal for Politics, Gender and Culture is an open-access, double-blind peer-reviewed international journal that seeks to serve as a platform for the theoretical production of Southeastern Europe and enable its visibility and an opening for international debate with authors from both the “intellectual centers” and the “intellectual margins” of the world. It is particularly interested in promoting theoretical investigations which see issues of politics, gender and culture as inextricably interrelated. It is open to all theoretical strands, to all schools and non-schools of thought without prioritizing cannons and their major figures of authority. It does not seek doctrinal consistency, but it seeks consistency in rigor of investigation which can combine frameworks of interpretation derived from various and sometimes opposed schools of thought. Our passion is one for topics rather than philosophical masters.

Identities is published by the Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities - Skopje, North Macedonia.

LOCKDOWN THEORY #40

Coronavirus does not discriminate who it affects, and the health, political, economic and psychosocial responses to the virus should not either. At one of the most difficult times we are undergoing as a humanity, women migrant workers across the globe currently stand on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic in almost every capacity. These women work in essential but low-paid and vulnerable jobs, as health and care workers, nurses, cleaners and domestic workers, not only placing them at an elevated risk of exposure, but also rendering them one of the most vulnerable populations to COVID-19.[1] With women migrant workers inherently having to grapple with intersectional forms of discrimination and inequalities, gender-specific violations in migration policies, insecure forms of labor, racism, and xenophobia, to name just a few, the virus currently adds another layer to this intersection that has not been explicitly addressed in policies on the ground.
