The Meanings of Violence and The Violence of Meanings
Issue number 4 of 'polylog' will deal with 'violence'. We invite contributions working on violence and its meanings and contexts from a variety of methodological, cultural, and (inter-)disciplinary perspectives. The focus should be clearly philosophical, and we are particularly interested in conceptual and/or phenomenogical investigations exploring significant general questions on violence (and its co-relative terms in other languages) in novel ways. This could be done, for example, by integrating reflections on culturally specific contexts and backgrounds, or by referring to currently significant
socio-cultural and political contexts. We are also interested in exploring the kinds of violence associated with the increasing control of the means of signification, interpretation, and understanding. We welcome the use of case studies, feeding in to an interculturally accessible discussion of violence, and we encourage new approaches to the reflection of violence altogether.
In this sense, issue number 4 of 'polylog' seeks to present, expose, and explore the meanings of violence, in a manner that increases intercultural understanding, and furthers the questioning of basic frameworks and power structures of our everyday lives.
The deadline for submission of articles is February 15, 2003. If you have any further queries, please don't hesitate to contact us. Please send contributions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
