2014-05-01 (in 15 days)
The peer-reviewed journal Leadership and the Humanities publishes works from across the humanities that offer unique and important insights into the understanding and practice of leadership. Leadership is a human phenomenon, with all the complexity and multivalence that that suggests. The strength of the humanities has ever been the depth that they provide to our understanding and comprehension of the essential human condition. The disciplines of the humanities—including literatary studies, the visual and performing arts, classics, philosophy, religious studies, linguistics, and law—prioritize meaning and purpose, not simply causality and correlation. These approaches to knowledge enhance self-reflection and are likely to engender empathy for others and an active sense of civic duty. Applied to leadership, understanding how humans find meaning and shared purposes goes to the heart of the relational process that we call leadership.
The journal publishes original papers including but not limited to the following fields:
• Philosophical approaches to Leadership Studies • History and Leadership • Biography and Leadership • Analytic psychology, psychoanalysis and Leadership • Ethics and Leadership • Cultural Studies and Leadership • Arts and Leadership • Literature and Leadership • Language (modern and ancient), Linguistics and Semiotics approaches to Leadership • Communication Studies and Leadership • Religion and Leadership • Anthropological approaches to Leadership • Law and Leadership • Political theory and Leadership • Humanity education for leadership development
