Redescriptions: Political Thought, Conceptual History and Feminist Theory is an international refereed journal which publishes contributions on the transdisciplinary study of concepts. In classical rhetoric redescription refers to a rhetorical move that alters the use of a concept in one respect or another. The journal Redescriptions draws attention to conceptual moves within political theory, conceptual history and feminist thought, and highlights political agency within these moves. Political and feminist thought in various forms, whether in philosophical, historical or contemporary terms is published by the journal. Unique in its focus in political and conceptual contingency, Redescriptions began its life as Finnish Yearbook of Political Thought in 1997; it was renamed as Redescriptions in 2003, and since 2014 the journal has been published by Manchester University Press. Redescriptions welcomes original scholarly contributions on any aspect of political and feminist thought no matter what the academic discipline of the author. In particular, we welcome papers which take the changing and contested character of concepts seriously.
