CALL FOR PAPERS
The Leadership Quarterly Special Issue:
Leadership: Views from the Humanities
The Leadership Quarterly will publish a special issue called Leadership: Views from the Humanities. Nearly all leadership scholars today agree that Leadership Studies is and ought to be an interdisciplinary field. Yet, most research on leadership is still done by scholars in the social sciences. There is a growing body of work from scholars in the humanities, but it is rarely integrated into the social science research and vice versa.
The humanities offer a wealth of insights about leaders and leadership that have yet to be tapped and incorporated into mainstream leadership research. Subjects such as history, philosophy, religion, art, and literature offer a context for understanding empirical research. Together, these areas of inquiry constitute a record of the human condition. The humanities help us understand people, institutions, organizations, and societies in terms of ethics, values, imagination, passion, and responses to their culture and environment. They provide a panorama of leader-follower relationships and behaviors over time. Without the humanities, our understanding of leadership is incomplete. The goal of this issue is to bring new topics and methods of research into the leadership literature. Our hope is that by doing so we can broaden the depth and breadth of the field.
The editors of this special issue seek papers on leaders an leadership from scholars in history, philosophy, literature, classics, religion, and the arts. Papers may be on any topic related to leadership as long as they specifically address how the paper contributes to our understanding of leaders and/or leadership. We encourage but do not require submissions to incorporate material from the leadership literature. Interdisciplinary research that spans the humanities and other fields is especially welcome. All submissions must not only address leadership, but they should also meet the scholarly standards of the top journals in their respective fields.
This special issue is scheduled for publication in the summer of 2008. Manuscripts should not exceed 45 pages, including endnotes. Please note that papers should be prepared according to MLA style and as Word documents.
Due date: Initial submissions due by September 15, 2007. Please send all manuscripts to: firstname.lastname@example.org
