About Us

Being the first and only academic journal focused on gender and sexuality in Oklahoma, our mission is to gather and disseminate quality research, fiction, personal stories, prose, poetry, artwork, and academic reviews that explore gender theory, gender identity, as well as how race, class, and ethnicity shape society’s expectations of the individual both currently and historically.

The Central Dissent aims to provide a platform for researchers, poets, writers, and artists to present new research and developments in these areas through various mediums, including:

  • Scholarly Reviews
  • Research Papers
  • Fiction
  • Creative Non-Fiction
  • Poetry
  • Prose
  • Art
