Journal of Critical Southern Studies, Dec 2015

The Journal of Critical Southern Studies is a new multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to scholarship from and about The Global South, broadly defined. The JCSS welcomes submissions on all aspects of southern studies. Subjects might include, but are not limited to: reflections on the configuration of global systems, investigations of institutions of power, studies of the environment and the south, literary analyses outside the canon, examinations of South-South exchanges in gender studies, religion and theology, or examinations of South–South exchanges in all their various manifestations.

The JCSS is currently accepting manuscripts for its December 2015 issue. Manuscripts need not address the subjects listed above but should deal, in a substantive way, with issues concerning the Global South. The Journal will also consider book reviews, research notes, and briefings as specified in the submission guidelines.

Dedicated to the promotion of inter-disciplinary, cross-regional Global South studies, the JCSS is published twice a year. The journal only considers original, unpublished manuscripts of high scholarly quality not under review by other journals. Manuscripts should be 8,000 to 12,000 words in length, double-spaced, and include an abstract of 50-100 words. References and citations as well as general manuscript format should conform to our submission guidelines at https://jcss.our.dmu.ac.uk.

The deadline for submission of manuscripts is 30th October. The next issue is scheduled to come out in December 2015.

Please send all manuscripts with “Manuscript Submission” in the subject line to JCSS@global-hands.co.uk.
