Qui Parle, produced at UC Berkeley since 1986 and published by Indiana University Press, is seeking articles for its upcoming issues.
About the Journal:
Qui Parle, an interdisciplinary journal of the humanities, arts and social sciences, is currently accepting general submissions for upcoming issues. Since its inception in 1986, the print journal has explored questions of language and textuality, theories of subjectivity, aesthetics, gender studies, critical theory and postcolonial theory. In recent years, the journal has expanded upon its original affiliation with literary criticism and Continental philosophy in order to feature articles from the human sciences, including the philosophy of science, anthropology, and sociology. This dilation enables even greater possibilities for comparative examinations of critical questions of concern for the humanities and social sciences alike, including: cultural alterity, the politics of visual culture, secularity and religion, nationalisms, political violence, migration and diaspora, questions of psychological development and trauma, the politics of memory, the historical anthropology of science, and modes of non-European or Anglo-American intelligibility. The interrogative and imperative of the journal’s title—who speaks—articulates a common framework for the diverse modes and objects of inquiry taken up in its pages. In particular, the journal is committed to analyzing the conditions and effects of this multivalent question, which demands response but only admits provisional determination.
The publication history of Qui Parle is replete with significant figures in recent multi-disciplinary scholarship, including Giorgio Agamben, Benedict Anderson, Judith Butler, Hans Blumenberg, Hélène Cixous, Jacques Derrida, Michael Hardt, Alphonso Lingis, Achille Mbembe, Jean-Luc Nancy, Denise Riley, Loïc Wacquant, and Slavoj Zizek,. Qui Parle is dedicated not only to fostering dialogue and critical thought, but to introducing hitherto under-examined analytic modes, as well as hitherto underrepresented thinkers.
