Call for Proposals by Guest Editors
Due 1 May 2019
The Editorial Board of Law Text Culture is seeking proposals for the 2020 edition of the Journal (Volume 24), due for publication in December 2020.
Law Text Culture is a transcontinental, peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal which aims to produce fresh insights and knowledges about law and jurisprudence across three interconnected axes:
Politics: engaging the relationship of force and resistance
Aesthetics: eliciting the relationship of judgment and expression
Ethics: exploring the relationship of self and other.
The annual thematic special issue, curated by guest editors, is selected by the editorial board. Each issue explores its theme across a range of genres, with scholarly essays and articles sitting alongside visual and literary engagements. In this way, Law Text Culture excites unique intersectional and interdisciplinary encounters with law in all its forms.
Proposals by potential guest editors should include:
- a concise description of the proposed theme;
- a draft call for papers setting out the aims and concepts of the issue; and how it fits within the remit of the journal;
- an indication of the intended authors and how they are to be identified/contacted (eg whether the proposal arises out of a seminar series, conference or workshop);
- the range of genres (poetry, scholarly essays, visual arts etc) expected to be included;
- an explanation of how the copy-editing will be completed, including whether the guest editor/s will secure appropriate funding for copy-editing (usually approx $1000), or undertake the copy-editing themselves; and
- brief details of the guest editor(s).
Proposals should be 1000 words (approx) and should be emailed to the Managing Editor by close of business 1 May 2019. For further information, including the role of guest editors, and the journal style guide, please visit: LTC at LIRC. Details on the editors and themes of previous editions of Law Text Culture are available at: UOW Research Online.
