CFP: Human Rights

Journal: Review of Human Rights
Editor: Syed Sami Raza
Submission deadline: March 1, 2016
Description: »In contemporary “precarious times” human rights are frequently violated, violence is perpetrated, and soft democracies back down in the face of emergency regimes. These conditions produce the need to engage in critical reflection on our contemporary human condition. Our interdisciplinary Call for Paper seeks to reflect on these issues. We seek to reflect on multifarious manifestations of violence and derogations from human rights, whether historical or current. We would like to approach them from political, social, psychological, and cultural domains. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the situation of human rights is represented in art genre: literature, film, theatre or visual arts, and local narratives.«

CFP: Mass Violence and Memory

Conference: Mass Violence and Memory
Place: O. P. Jindal Global University, India
Date: May 18-19, 2016
Submission deadline for paper and panel proposals: January 20, 2016
Description: »Mass Violence is an ineluctable truth of world history, in fact there has never been a time without it. While the international community continues its efforts to prevent it till today, its deterrence has varied immensely from one decade to another and from one geographical region to the other. What causes mass violence and how it can be prevented are questions that continue to trouble us. The varying scales and magnitudes of mass violence have attracted a range of definitions and nomenclatures, like genocide, ethnic cleansing, pogrom, etc., and triggered debates about their usage. The aftermath of mass violence is just as troubling as mass violence itself for it raises the questions of acknowledgement of the event, rehabilitation of the survivors, reconciliation between the perpetrator and the victim, and coming to terms with the harsh reality of memory politics.«

CFP: Seeking Authors/Editors for Books in American History and Social Sciences

Publisher: Praeger Publishing
Submission deadline: None
Description: »Praeger Publishing, a leading independent academic publisher, is seeking authors for books on American history, American popular culture, American studies, and contemporary American issues. We are looking either for new book ideas from authors or to discuss in-house book ideas with potential authors. Praeger publishes books with an interest to a broad array of readers, from undergraduate students to interested laypersons, rather than narrow focused books of interest to only a small circle of scholars. Our books typically explore a historical theme, idea, or event (we publish very few biographies) with resonance for today. Alternatively, we publish books that examine pressing contemporary issues, often from a historical perspective. Finally, we are also looking for those scholars interested in editing reference works in any of the above-noted fields.«
