CFP for the 5th (2012) issue of Tabur: Yearbook for European History, Society, Culture and Thought
Call for Papers Date:
The Richard Koebner Minerva Center at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in co-operation with the Resling Press in Tel Aviv, invites papers for the 5th (2012) issue of Tabur: Yearbook for European History, Society, Culture and Thought.
With the establishment of economics as an academic discipline, social scientific thought was dominated by the perception of culture and the economy as two distinct, if not mutually excluding, realms of human activity. This dualistic thinking has been decisively challenged in recent times. Both the increasing interest in the production of meaning at work as represented by the growing importance of culture, creativity and knowledge in the economy, as well as the growing awareness of the constitutive role of discourses facilitated a new understanding of the economic realm. Events like the collapses of the communist block, and the more recent global economic crises further demonstrate that the economy becomes a historical force only when it is encoded in culture and interpreted in experience. Best substantiated in a new field of inquiry called “cultural economy,” scholars from different disciplines and areas of study are now seeking to develop a cultural theory of economics.
In particular, the 5th (2012) issue of Tabur invites pivotal and innovative papers engaging a cultural approach to the economy both from a historical as well as contemporary perspective. We also encourage submission of papers dealing with the journal's general scope of interest, to be published in the general section of the yearbook.
Articles should be submitted in English or German (7000 words limit) no later than April 1, 2011, via email to Mr. Ohad Kohn at firstname.lastname@example.org. Following a double-blind review, articles accepted for publication will be translated by Tabur and published in Hebrew, accompanied by an abstract in English.
