Call For Papers for a 2009 Special Issue:
“Toward Development of Politics and the Political” in Integral Review: A Transdisciplinary and Transcultural Journal for New Thought, Research, and Praxis
Call for Papers Date:
The overarching aim for this special issue on "Toward Development of Politics and the Political" is to make a politically significant contribution to public knowledge and discourse. It should illuminate a comprehensive range of considerations that need to be integrated into effective approaches to today’s—and the future’s—political behaviors and complex political issues, policies, and systems. We aim for comprehensiveness in terms of the issue’s breadth, as well as in the depth of insights brought to any subjects that authors address.
Works drawn from one to many disciplines and perspectives should be applied to the arena called “political” or “politics.” We intend a broad conception of these terms. Regardless of different concepts and areas of emphasis, politics and the political focus attention on political relationships, behaviors, impacts, strategies, assumptions, processes, structures, systems, and formal and informal institutions. Such dimensions may be examined at any scale from micro to macro.
We are looking for good scholarship and other thoughtful contributions from an international range of authors and contexts. These should meet Integral Review’s general acceptance criteria and respond to the purposes of this Special Issue. We are not looking for desktop or blog-type opinion pieces. Submissions in languages other than English are welcomed if they are accompanied by an extended three-page abstract in English (single spaced).
