Quimbandas invites the submission of original manuscripts on a full range of topics related to approaches to womanhood, manhood, and human development issues in all disciplines. As an electronic journal, we welcome submissions that are of a time-sensitive nature.

This journal demonstrates the value of interrogations of human identities and of the deepest historical perspectives on the development of contemporary cultural and critical theory. QuimbandasExplorations of identities is a discipline-spanning, peer-reviewed journal that brings approaches to performing that which is human into productive critical relation. The journal advances and inspires new critical investigations of issues related to human identities by examining contemporary events, issues, ideas, problems, objects, and studies.
