General Call for Papers - 2023 “Posthumanities as Praxis” (Update)
The Journal of Posthumanism is an international multilingual peer-reviewed scholarly journal that promotes innovative work to transverse the fields ranging from social sciences, humanities, and arts to medicine and STEM. In line with the efforts of creating a broad network beyond disciplinary boundaries, the journal seeks to explore what it means to be human in this technologically-saturated, ecologically damaged world, and transcend the traditional conception of the human while encouraging philosophical thinking beyond humanism.
Founded in 2020, the Journal of Posthumanism is currently indexed in CEEOL and publishes three issues a year.
We are currently open to submissions that fit the scope and focus of the Journal of Posthumanism broadly, but we also envision 2023 as the year of posthumanities as praxis. We, therefore, invite works that focus specifically on the theoretical and practical applications of posthumanist notions. In particular, we seek contributions that might address the following questions:
- Whether, and if so to what extent, posthumanities can help us–scholars, practitioners, policy-makers, and communities–broaden our perspectives and critically engage with global issues, including but not limited to:
Climate change, pandemics, biodiversity loss, waste, pollution, weapons industry, military aggression, extractivism, and techno-capitalist solutionism in their intersectionality with precarity, racism, masculinity, sexism, heteronormativity, dogmatism, ableism, and specism.
Submissions of full-length articles, commentaries, interviews, book reviews, and artistic works may be made online via our online submission portal. All article-length submissions will be subject to our double-blind peer-review process. All other submissions will be reviewed internally by our editorial board and selected for publication based on their overall fit with the scope and focus of the Journal of Posthumanism and our submission guidelines.
For full consideration, please be aware of the following submission deadlines and the associated publication dates:
- 30 November 2022 → June 2023 issue (Vol. 3, No, 2)
- 31 March 2023 → October 2023 issue (Vol. 3, No. 3)
Before completing your submission, we ask that you review the author guidelines and make sure your submission adheres to Journal of Posthumanism formatting guidelines.
