The editors of Stirling’s postgraduate journal Stryvling are currently looking for articles for an issue dedicated to the topic of ‘Quality of Life’. The CFP closes in May 2016 and follows here:
‘The Stirling International Journal of Postgraduate Research is a peer-reviewed research journal published by postgraduate students at the University of Stirling. Its objective is to attract high quality, original, multidisciplinary research articles and book reviews for publication in theme-driven issues. The theme of our upcoming, third issue is ‘quality of life’. The journal is aimed at an international audience and will be published online in open access mode.
‘To read some analyses, you would think that [the protests in France of May] 1968 took place in the heads of a few Parisian intellectuals. We must therefore remember that it is the product of a long chain of world events, and a series of currents of international thought, that already linked the emergence of new forms of struggle to the production of a new subjectivity, if only in its critique of centralism and its qualitative claims concerning the quality of life’. – Gilles Deleuze
The Stirling International Journal of Postgraduate Research seeks articles on the subject of the continual political and technological mechanisms exerted upon the quality of life, and the varied human responses to these mechanisms. How have the sciences of politics, education, law, and the arts shaped quality of life and our very notions of it? We are looking for articles of between 5000 and 7000 words on the topic relating but not limited to the following fields: aquaculture, film studies, history, law, literature, nursing, philosophy, politics, physiotherapy, psychology, sociology and software engineering. The deadline for submission of abstracts of roughly 400 words is May 2016. Please email your abstracts to one of the following email addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org.’
Submissions relating to France and the wider Francophone world are very welcome!
