Perspectives is an online academic journal run by students for students. We are looking for contributions from undergraduate and graduate students dealing with all aspects of communist and post-communist studies.
Call for Papers
The Centre for Post-Communist Studies at Saint Francis Xavier University launches its online review, Perspectives, a worldwide student journal of investigations of communism and post-communism. The journal considers for publication excellent articles written by current students from around the world providing timely insight into the political, social, economic and cultural life of communist and post-communist countries. Perspectives provides a forum for graduate and undergraduate students to engage diverse ideas and to imagine new possibilities for the development of countries as diverse as Cuba, Russia, and Kazakhstan. Contributions dealing with any communist or post-communist country are welcome, as are examinations building on political science, economics, history, religious studies, anthropology and sociology. Both single-case studies and comparisons of two or more countries will be considered.
The electronic format of Perspectives provides an alternative venue that expands debate by creating space for the emergence of new ideas. Such a medium broadens the horizon for undergraduate and graduate publications and provides a forum where typically unheard voices can be heard in academia. The editors firmly believe that budding scholars introduce valuable ideas that must be disseminated in order to understand the different facets of life under communist and post-communist regimes. Our speedy review process and electronic format enable us to publish accepted contributions in the shortest period of time. Perspectives is a biannual publication directed entirely by students and benefiting from the guidance of the St. Francis Xavier faculty known for their expertise on communist and post-communist issues. The journal accepts original, previously unpublished manuscripts in English, French and Russian. If wishing to submit a manuscript for publication, please contact our Managing Editor for style guidelines.
