NEW CALL FOR PAPERS AND DETAILS OF FURTHER PUBLICATION OPPORTUNITIES
The Far Right in Contemporary Europe
Our previous call for papers ‘The Far Right in Contemporary Europe’ for a special issue of the Journal of Contemporary European Studies has generated considerable interest. As guest co-editors, we have received a large number of proposals offering varied and original approaches to the understanding of the far right in Europe. We aim to produce an intellectually coherent and challenging issue for publication in December 2008, and we are still open to further proposals. We would therefore very much encourage potential contributors to send their proposals by email to the addresses below before the 1 July 2007.
Given the number and scope of proposals we have received so far, we are now looking at the possibility of editing a volume on the same subject. Established publishers have already expressed a strong interest in this project. If you wish to submit a proposal for a chapter in this edited volume, please send your proposals by email at the addresses below before the 30 September 2007.
We are interested in both comparative/transnational analyses and national-based contributions that seek to break away from the exceptionalist parochialism which so often characterises the focus on individual countries. Articles or chapters will mainly cover contemporary examples, concerning all geographical areas of relevance in the development of the far right.
We would be interested, particularly but not solely, in the following approaches and topics:
1. Local and trans-national perspectives on far right parties (including, cross-border interactions and influences).
2. Comparative studies.
3. Non-party dimensions of the far right in Europe (youth movements, anti-abortion and family associations, paramilitary groups, media, etc…)
4. Relations between the far right and the mainstream right.
5. Historical/ historiographical perspectives on the far right
6. Contemporary debates over the representation(s) of the far right
We welcome contributions from political scientists, sociologists, historians and all scholars of European studies broadly defined. Papers from postgraduates working in the above-mentioned areas are also welcomed.
Contributions should be between 6,000 and 8,000 words in length, and may also be submitted as e-mail attachments to the addresses below. Only original works not published elsewhere will be considered, and all contributions will be peer-reviewed.
The Journal of Contemporary European Studies (JCES previously Journal of European Area Studies) seeks to provide a forum for interdisciplinary debate about the theory and practice of area studies as well as for empirical studies of European societies, politics and cultures. Its coverage and readership extend broadly across the humanities and social sciences, and the journal is therefore well-placed to bring a range of different disciplinary perspectives to bear on this subject. Emmanuel Godin (University of Portsmouth), Brian Jenkins (University of Leeds) and Andrea Mammone (University of Leeds/Università di Siena) will be guest co-editors of the special issue on the ‘Far Right in Contemporary Europe’ and co-editors of a volume on the same subject.
Proposals to Brian Jenkins (firstname.lastname@example.org), Andrea Mammone (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) or Emmanuel Godin (email@example.com), or write to Brian Jenkins at the address below:
