New and Newly Discovered Periodicals. (Periodical Notes)


BAD JENS: IRANIAN FEMINIST NEWSLETTER 1999?-- . Ed.: Mahsa Shekarloo. Frequency of publication: flexible. Free: online only. Website: http://www.badjens.com/ (Issues examined: Third (1 August 2000); Fourth (21 November 2000); Fifth (25 May 2002))

"Bad lens is a feminist online magazine mainly addressing readers outside Iran," writes Mahsa Shekarloo, who has lived both in Tehran and in the U.S., in the fifth edition. "It is hoped to be a step towards improving links between activists/academics inside and outside the county. [Since] intellectual and cultural exchanges between Iran and its neighbors are few and far between--especially regarding women's activities--we're particularly eager to reach readers in the Middle East."

The magazine's mission: "to smash the myths, interrogate the stereotypes, and dismantle the barriers."

About the title: "Bad" means "bad," and "jens" means "gender, nature, or type." The two terms usually appear as one word--"badjens"--meaning "disreputable or sly."

Each edition contains interviews (there's one in the fourth edition with Shahla Lahiji, publisher and reformist intellectual imprisoned for attending the Berlin Conference; in the fifth, one with women workers in Iranian factories) and articles (e.g., "Orientalism--An Experimental Approach"; "Afghan Refugees in Iran"; and "Of Numbers Greater Than Nineteen," about prostitution and the murder of nineteen women in the city of Mashad). The latest edition also includes news, announcements, and a list of recent books about or by Iranian women.
