Introduction to Post-structuralism - Essay Collection
Call for Papers Deadline:
This is a call for papers for an essay collection to be entitled "Introduction to Post-structuralism." The essay collection will consist of pedagogical, explanatory descriptions of post-structuralism to be used as references or classroom textbooks. The goal of this collection is to provide clear(er) understandings of these theorists and their works in order to further integrate them in and outside of the classroom. Submissions will need to be written for the undergraduate level of reading.
We are seeking 4 different types of submissions.
(1) Essays describing a post-structuralist from a general overview, encountering both their biographical information and academic work. Minimum word count: 7000 words.
(2) Essays describing a piece of work from a post-structuralist. Example: "Michel Foucault's 'History of Sexuality Vol. 1-3'". Minimum word count: 7000 words.
(3) Essays describing post-structuralism as a field or arena of thought (along with respective qualities, foundations and other characteristics of post-structuralism), in comparison or contrast to structuralism and other modern and contemporary fields of thought. Minimum word count: 4000 words.
(4) The future, (d)evolution and (in)significance of post-structuralist thought in the future. Minimum word count: 4000 words.
The post-structuralists we would like to propose for submissions types (1) & (2) are listed below:
This essay collection will be published as a book in late 2011. Hypothetically and ideally, the book will be arranged in the following order: essay types (3) then (1) then (2) then (4). *Submissions of all types and of most post-structuralists will be needed in order to produce this publication, therefore I urge you to spread this CFP in your respective circles and circuits*.
