Call for Papers, Book and Film Reviews for Special Edition of the Peace Studies Journal
Theme: Courageous Peace: Exploring Innovative, Diverse, and Inclusive Efforts in Peace, Social Justice and Conflict Studies
Guest Editors for the Peace and Justice Studies Association: Dr. Laura Finley, Associate Professor of Sociology & Criminology, Barry University and David Ragland, Visiting Assistant Professor of Education, Bucknell University
The Peace Studies Journal is an international interdisciplinary free online peer-reviewed scholarly journal.
Making, building, and teaching peace and social justice requires courage, creativity, and inclusivity. In order to fully actualize peace—in our relationships, our homes, our institutions, our nations and our world—we must be not only attentive to who is at the table but also who is not; we must think about how to utilize both tried and true nonviolent direct action strategies and pedagogies but also new and innovative methods. In this special edition, edited by PJSA Board members and affiliates, we seek contributions that tell our stories in new ways and that tell completely new stories. We want to highlight the courageous work of local communities, educators, and activists seeking to live, teach, and make peace.
We invite original, unpublished articles, book and film reviews, as well as non-traditional formats (poetry, dialogues, and more). Every submitted article will be subject to anonymous peer review and recommendations. Additionally, we are seeking peer reviewers (available from August 15 to October 1, 2014) to evaluate and make recommendations about proposed contributions.
Possible topics linked to the theme include (but are not limited to):
·How diverse are the peace and conflict studies and social justice movements?
·What are the unique and compelling peace and social justice stories of marginalized peoples? Why and how have they been minimized or excluded from these movements?
·How do we best capture the courageous and innovative stories of peacemakers everywhere?
·Who are the new heroes and heroines of the peace and conflict studies and social justice movements? How do we celebrate and best utilize their work?
·What are the innovative ways that peacemakers and social justice advocates are achieving their goals?
Submissions of articles (2,000-10,000 words), film, book, art and other media reviews (maximum 3,000 words), interviews and dialogues (1,000-10,000 words), poems (less than 10,000 words) or other contributions should be submitted to Dr. Laura Finley at firstname.lastname@example.org AND to David Ragland at email@example.com no later than August 15, 2014.
Additional guidelines for submissions:
·All submissions should have appropriate references and citations. Manuscripts should be single line spacing, 12-point font and conform to the American Psychological Association (APA) style format with no footnotes or endnotes.
·Submissions must be sent in Microsoft Word format. Submissions in other software formats will not be reviewed.
·Authors should remove all self-identification from their submissions, but all submissions must be accompanied by a title page with author(s) name and affiliation, name of type of submission (e.g., article, review, conference summary, etc.), contact information including e-mail, postal address, and phone number.
