CFP: Special section of Radical Philosophy on Gezi Protests

with one comment

A friend writes:

I am collecting “very” short philosophical essays/reflections on the “event” of Taksim Gezi Parkı for a special section planned for Radical Philosophy, especially by philosophers (and philosophically-oriented scholars from other disciplines) who have been actually or virtually “on site” during the event. Radical Philosophy’s Editorial Collective has welcomed the idea in principle, without any decisive commitment.
I would like to invite you to contribute to this section.
Here are the main points:
The total length of the section will not exceed 9000 words.
I expect 6 or 7 final contributions, although this call is sent to around 15 potential contributors.
Essays should be between 1000 and 1500 words – and, accordingly, dense, succinct and to the point – argumentative, interpretative, reflective, … rather than informative, descriptive, narrative …
Papers will be subject to peer-review among potential contributors before being submitted to Radical Philosophy’s editorial process for final decision.
Radical Philosophy reserves the right to reject any or all contributions.
The deadline for submitting the final collection of essays to Radical Philosophy’s Editorial Collective is mid-August to be considered for November-December 2013 issue.
The deadline for initial submission of pieces to lyurdakulk@yahoo.co.uk is 31 July 2013. This will leave a week for peer-review and another for editing as appropriate.

Also please keep in mind the journal’s general principles for submitted essays:

Considering the tight deadlines, please send a short expression of interest including a tentative title and/or “theme” within a couple of days to help planning the section.
