CFP: Studies in Social and Political Thought (26th Issue)

February 16, 2016

Call for Papers

With its 25th Volume due to be published soon, Studies in Social and
Political Thought is a student run journal based in the University of
Sussex’s Centre for Social and Political Thought. The journal has a
dual purpose: first, fostering developments in the inter-disciplinary
areas of social and political thought and, second, serving as a
publishing platform for junior academics.

Past issues have featured articles by well-respected figures such as
William Outhwaite and Stefan Muller-Doohm as well as the first
publications of a number of promising junior academics. Although
student run, we try to ensure highest standards and best quality
publishing. We have attracted a prestigious panel of leading scholars
in social and political thought for our international advisory board,
including: Martin Jay of UC Berkeley, Robert Pippin of the University
of Chicago, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak of Columbia University, Seyla
Banhabib of Yale University, Simon Jarvis of the University of
Cambridge, William Outhwaite of the University of Newcastle, Homi
Bhabha of Harvard University, Adriana Cavarero of the University of
Verona, Alessandro Ferrara of the University of Rome, Axel Honneth of
the University of Frankfurt and Fredric Jameson of Duke University.

We are looking forward to submissions for the upcoming 26th issue of
the journal. The field and variety of topics should be within the
inter-disciplinary areas of social and political thought.

For more information please visit our website: https://ssptjournal.wordpress.com/

Deadline for submissions is the 31st of March 2016.

Submissions need to be send to: sspt@sussex.ac.uk
