CALL FOR PAPERS - In-Spire, Vol. 2, No. 1, April 2007 www.in-spire.org
In-spire , a post-graduate e-journal concerned with cross-disciplinary research in the social sciences based at the Research Institute of Law, Politics and Justice, Keele University, United Kingdom seeks contributions, essays, book reviews and interviews for its Spring ’07 [Vol. 2, No. 1] issue:
Beyond Critiques & Deconstruction
As a method of critique, deconstruction has provided an avenue for realizing scholarship outside of the traditional canon. While deconstruction has instigated other erudition to be pursued, there is nevertheless a schism between critique and practice. What is there beyond critique? How can one move beyond imagining and arguing in order to contribute to the practical implementation of interdisciplinary practices? What gives 'beyond critique' the credibility or legitimacy to implement new ideas? The quest of ‘beyond critique’ is not only to provide evidence with valid criticism, but also how to construct criticism that is "radically innovative" so as to accept or reject deconstruction.
The new issue of In-Spire will seek explore how intersectionality of ideas and practices shapes ‘beyond critique’ to rethink new/radical ways of philosophical positioning from a range of perspectives in practice (e.g.: ethics, critical legal, socio-legal, anthropology, environment, politics, media and communications, security studies, gender, criminology). The articles should help our understanding of the compelling ‘beyond’ critiques of inclusion and exclusion, which undermine all or most claims to empirical "truth".
Abstracts between 250-300 words must accompany the essays. Papers invited from postgraduate research students in all branches of the social sciences. Last date for submissions is 30th March 2007. Please visit the website regarding submission guidelines:
