Call for Papers Vol 5 (1), October 2017/ Fifth Anniversary Edition

For the October 2017/ Fifth Anniversary edition, we particularly welcome submissions which will contribute to a themed section on ‘Movement’. Pertinent to current debates within and across many disciplines, movement can be understood as action, motion, emotion, and mobility, ranging from physical, mental, mechanical, geographical, industrial to musical, artistic, social, cultural, and political. People (migration and displacement), commodities and capital (trade and trade agreements), ideas and information (communication, translation, and connectivity), and images (film and television) move, and they move in all directions. We are also interested in the lack of movement, stasis, stagnation, and standoff, for example.

Submissions which do not engage with the theme ‘Movement’ are also welcome.

We publish a variety of content:

           Conversation (3-5,000 words)

  • Interviews with leading academics

    Articles (5-6,000 words)

  • Research articles

    Review Articles (3-5,000 words)
