Journal of Studies in History and Culture - Call For Papers
Call for Papers Date:
Topics can range from materialist analyses of literary texts, discussions on fundamentalist threats to the libertarian principles of a secular democracy, the survival of traditional theatre in the face of continuous onslaught from city bred cultural trends to comparative morphology of counterculture in post First World War scenarios on a global scale. Moving ahead with a preset theme would have been regressive to our cause of serving as a platform for dialogue and active engagement with the community of emerging scholars all over the world. Even as we stand at the cusp of widespread change and discontent ranging from the Occupy movements, the Arab Spring, the anti-graft movements in India there are also stories like the Nepalese democracy movement moving towards fruitions or the Chilean student movements sending the Vallejos and Borics to their parliament. There is much to rejoice in and at the same time ponder about. Would any of these bring about any changes in the economic foundations of neo-liberal regimes all over the world or would life continue unabated? Were these interim protests all for nothing or are the times about to change? Many such issues which are relevant will hopefully be written upon by scholars who are the future of the academic world. With their intellectual pursuits they would probably intend to connect with a community of scholars worldwide, thinking on similar lines, and perhaps asking similar questions. Hoping to find a space for such research the Journal of Studies in History and Culture invites articles for its first issue which would appear in the latter half of 2014. We would try to incorporate papers dealing with diverse topics, with an interdisciplinary approach. The deadline for submission of manuscripts is 31st of August, 2014. All submissions should contain a cover letter and an abstract of no more than 300 words. Authors looking to review books for JSHC should contact the journal with their proposals as unsolicited reviews would normally not be accepted.
The submission guidelines and other instructions can be read at http://jshc.org/?page_id=8.
