Call for Papers on "Middle Class" (Middle East - Topics & Arguments, issue 2)
The peer-reviewed online journal “Middle East – Topics & Arguments” is calling for papers for its second issue, focusing on the “middle class,” to be published in spring 2014.
This issue of “Middle East – Topics & Arguments” aims to explore middle classes in the Middle East, or linked to the Middle East, from various perspectives. It will combine analytical examination of the concept “middle class” and empirical arguments about Middle Eastern middle classes, both as actors and as objects.
We call for articles from a broad array of disciplines including political science, sociology, anthropology, literature studies, cultural studies, media studies, linguistics, history, and economics. We encourage articles that embed the concept of middle class in a broader context of social inequality, thus expanding the narrow focus of class and including parallel factors such as gender or ethnicity. Articles should be explicit about their definition of middle class.
All articles that fall into the general framework of the journal, but do not relate to the special topic “middle class,” will be taken into consideration for the “off topic” section of “Middle East – Topics & Arguments.”
The deadline for abstract submissions is June 30, 2013.
The deadline for article submissions is October 31, 2013.
Manuscripts and manuscript proposals and other editorial correspondence should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The detailed call for paper is to be found at http://www.meta-journal.net/announcement.
