As one of the Associate Editors for the new journal Critical Studies on Security, I am pleased to announce the following call for papers:
Security is one of the defining features of our,or any, time. Collectively we seek security, value security, desire security, while at the same time often being troubled by the actions that are taken in the name of our security. Critical Studies on Security is an international, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the study of ‘security’ in and through social critique. The journal aims to publish theoretically informed scholarship, which engages with the practice and politics of security. We welcome articles from or across the range of disciplines, and from any of the critical social theoretical positions.
- Papers for consideration should be submitted electronically as a Word document to the editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Authors may also contact the editors with proposals for special issues.
- Articles should range between 5,000 and 8,000 words including references.
- Full ‘Instructions for authors’ can be found under the ‘Authors and submissions’ tab on the journal website
I am very excited about this project which is being managed from my old alma mater, the York Centre for International and Security Studies. David Mutimer, as the founding editor, has put in several years of hard work to bring CSoS together and to assemble an impressive international editorial board that will play an important role in shaping the journal. With the limited number of venues currently publishing critical work on security--particularly within international relations where you can count them with one hand--I hope that the introduction of a new supra-disciplinary journal dedicated to publishing security-related research can make an important contribution to the sub-discipline into its third generation and beyond.
