Call for papers - Humanities and social sciences in an interdisciplinary perspective

We warmly invite you to submit papers (chapters) for the next volume of the peer-reviewed group monograph entitled "Humanities and Social Sciences in an Interdisciplinary Perspective". Texts from all disciplines included in the humanities and social sciences will be eligible for publication, after the manuscript has been positively reviewed beforehand. If you have any questions as to whether a given paper would fit into the theme of the publication, you are welcome to contact us directly.

The call for papers is continuous - the papers are submitted for review immediately after receipt, and thus, once the minimum number of papers has been collected, by the decision of the editor-in-chief, a given volume may be closed and submitted to the publisher for publication. Subsequent submitted articles will be included in the next volume.

We guarantee publication (one or more volumes) by 30 September of this year at the latest.

Both students, postgraduates and academics may submit their texts. They may submit any number of texts - the same fee is charged for each additional text.

Language of texts: Polish, English, German, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Ukrainian, Russian (it is possible to publish a text in a language other than the one indicated, but this will involve obtaining new reviewers, which may lengthen the editorial work slightly).

After submission, papers will be submitted for one blind-review. After a negative review, the editors reserve the right to reject the text or, after the author has made adjustments, to submit it for another review.

It will be the authors' only task to submit the paper (including summary and keywords) in the form they have prepared. Technical editors will prepare papers to editorial requirements.

Cost of text publication: 80 EUR (including: open access digital publication on the website of the publishing house on the list of the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, cost of editorial work). The fee is charged only after a positive review.

It is possible to issue an invoice or a pro-forma invoice with a deferred payment date (especially in the case of obtaining funding for the publication from the university or reimbursement for it).

All certificates (e.g. of acceptance for publication) will be issued in electronic form.

Please send all questions concerning publication and texts directly to the following e-mail address:

Call For Papers: Migrating Minds: Journal of Cultural Cosmopolitanism-Spring 2024.

Migrating Minds: Journal of Cultural Cosmopolitanism is a new peer-reviewed, open-access scholarly journal devoted to interdisciplinary research on cultural cosmopolitanism from a comparative perspective.

It provides a unique, international forum for innovative critical approaches to cosmopolitanism emerging from literatures, cultures, media, and the arts in dialogue with other areas of the humanities and social sciences, across temporal, spatial, and linguistic boundaries.

By placing creative expressions at the center of a wide range of contemporary and historical intercultural relationships, the journal explores forms of belonging and spaces of difference and dissidence that challenge universalist and exclusionary paradigms.

Migrating Minds: Journal of Cultural Cosmopolitanism is hosted by Georgetown University, Washington D.C., and co-supported by the “Plurielles” Research Group, Bordeaux Montaigne University, France. Its founders and Editors-in-chief are Prof. Didier Coste (Bordeaux Montaigne U.), Dr. Christina Kkona (Bordeaux Montaigne U.), and Prof. Nicoletta Pireddu (Georgetown U.)

The Inaugural Issue is scheduled to appear in Fall 2023.
