Journal CFP: The Humanities as a Form of Resistance

The first issue of Con Texte, Laurentian University’s interdisciplinary humanities graduate student journal, will explore the various forms of text that ignite revolutionary forms of political and social resistance.

Works should reflect the ever present need for political resistance as expressed through the humanities and emphasize the role and importance of text as a means of pedagogy, revolution, and reformation.  When politics fall into dangerous and threatening forms, many of us have few alternatives for opposition.  This edition will explore the importance of text in maintaining our sense of the world, creating culture and national identity, and centring our communities within their own power.

We are looking for submissions exploring a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:

  • feminist literature, philosophy, and all other forms of text
  • explorations of intersectionality in terms of art, literature and philosophy
  • humour and satire as forms of political commentary
  • explorations of empowerment for community and culture through humanities methods
  • scholarly reflections on music, poetry and prose as forms of resistance

We invite submissions from scholars at all levels and seek a variety of theoretical positions, differing and silenced opinions, and strange perspectives about the value of the Humanities.

Full Submission Due: March 15th 2017
Maximum 3,500 words in Word format.
Citations in MLA, APA, and Chicago.
Prepared for blind review.
In English or French.
Online publication released June 1st 2017.

Please send your submission to contexte.journal@gmail.com.

CFP: Special Issue on Rhetoric and Peace Studies (English and French)

[copied from H-Rhetor announcement]

Call for Papers for volume 10, n° 1(19)/ 2017

Rhetoric and Peace at Crossroads: Public and Civic Discourse, Culture and Communication Perspectives

http://www.essachess.com/index.php/jcs/announcement/view/19

Guest editors:

Dr. Noemi Marin, Professor, School of Communication and Multimedia Studies, Florida Atlantic University, USA (nmarin@fau.edu)

Dr. Lara  Martin Lengel, Department of Communication, School of Media and Communication,  Bowling Green State University, USA (lengell@bgsu.edu)

This special issue examines rhetorical and/or cultural-critical perspectives on peace, non-violence, and the role of civic discourse in contemporary times. The issue intends to cover scholarship that focuses mainly on the last 30 years, including the historic period following 1989 that created a democratization of discourse throughout the world, yet engaged even more peace and conflict as paradigmatic perspectives on migration, terrorism, communism, and political and social change. Accordingly, some areas of scholarship pertinent to this special issue are: geopolitics and discourse of peace; historical public arguments for non-violence; theoretical approaches to communication and conflict as cultures of peace; migration and its peace-related consequences in the 21st century; nationalism as cultural or political paradigm of national identity; international contexts for rhetoric of peace, to name a few. Of note that this issue intends to present an interdisciplinary set of scholarly articles open to all disciplines such as but not limited to political communication, rhetorical studies, intercultural and/or international communication, and peace and conflict studies.
