Call for Papers (across all disciplines): Heathwood Institute and Press - Critical Theory & Democratic Alternatives
Heathwood Institute and Press is a non-profit, critical theoretical organisation that was formed by a collective of academic researchers and scholars across a wide range of disciplines.
Motivated and inspired by Frankfurt School critical theory (and the advancement thereof), our aim is to investigate the root causes of social, economic and environmental inequality by offering foundational, holisitic social critique as well as promoting concrete, critical alternatives to the type of social policy symptomatic of today’s highly unjust societies.
Moreover, our mission is to not only help provide people with practical insight into the complex social problems we face in the 21st Century but to also develop and promote radical, democratic alternatives.
To do this, we explore pressing social issues from across all disciplines. Our research and publications to date range from economics and social policy to foundational social critique, national and international law, democracy and government, participation and public engagement, the commons, racism, gender discrimination, culture, international politics, education, climate change, media and technology, violence, psychology, post-colonial theory, anthropology, epistemology, and even an extensive series on contemporary revolutionary social movements (including an in-depth study of Occupy).
We're presently accepting proposals, papers and manuscripts from all disciplines (for publication on our website). Scope is open so long that it fits within our general remit, which you can read more about on our site.
Because we very much operate as a collective, we're particularly interested in people who have a background in (Frankfurt School) critical theory and who are passionate about retrieving, redeveloping, and reworking it in the 21st Century.
