OSC Publications & Call for Contributors
Ocean Seminary College is pleased to announce the formalization of its publication arm to support interdisciplinary scholarship, artistic expression, and religious and spiritual discovery and a restored, mutual connection to planet Earth. To meet these goals, OSC is announcing the arrival of two publications:
Restoration Earth: An Interdisciplinary Journal for the Study of Nature & Civilization
The purpose of this peer-reviewed online journal is to encourage exploration of the relationship between human civilization and its impact upon human and non-human communities from all academic disciplines, including the sciences and social sciences, religion and philosophy, humanities and the arts (both scholastic and creative). Diverse scholarship perspectives, including those who questioning or countering whether there is a relationship/interaction or whether there is a moral imperative to change human society are encouraged and welcomed. Further, researchers and artists are encouraged not to restrict their submissions to overt discussions of the environment, but rather to reflect upon possible cultural areas that may covertly contribute to the maintenance of non-sustainable human civilizations. Ultimately, the goal of this journal is to create a rich and inclusive dialogue in the hopes of providing pathways through the cultural, humanitarian, and environmental challenges facing the 21st Century.
Published Quarterly: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall
Deadline for 1st Issue: November 1, 2010
ContemplativeSPIRIT: An Interactive E-zine for Spirituality & Religion
The purpose of ContemplativeSPIRIT is to encourage innovative and interactive discussion on a wide range of topics associated with religion and spirituality. Topics encouraged for submission include theo/alogical scholarship, activities for spiritual/religious development, personal spiritual narratives, literary pieces that are spiritually/religiously themed, and book reviews. Published monthly, this online magazine is designed to allow readers to comment to authors and encourages authors' response to readers.
