[Both general contributions and contributions from those in attendance at the conference are encouraged!]

Special Edition Theme

“The philosophers have hitherto only interpreted the world in various ways. The point, however, is to change it.” 

The past several years have been characterized by an onslaught of crises and catastrophes: a global pandemic, a relentless lethal battle against racism, dramatic weather patterns and forest fires, the culmination of an imperial tug-of-war between NATO and Russia, gun violence (both state-sanctioned and otherwise), a battle against reproductive rights, and continual, multi-faceted economic hardship. We have a lot to critique, from neglectful and exclusionary healthcare policies, to inequitable and gendered care burdens, to systemic racism, to industrial perpetrators of climate change, and the entanglement of all this with the profit motive of capitalism and colonial logics.

But now we shift our focus from critique to praxis! Because, along with our critiques, we are inspired to build anew as we divest from systems and structures that enforce injustice. Imagining a new world requires a bold and courageous imagination, one that is capable of conceiving radical new realities.


Manuscripts (of no more than 10000 words) should be sent as e-mail attachments (preferably in MS Word) to both guest editors of the special issue. Please attach two copies, one of which should be prepared for anonymous refereeing with all direct or indirect references to the author removed. Include an abstract of no more than 100 words, a short author bio, and email and mailing address. Citation style should follow the Chicago Manual of Style with abbreviated citations (only author, title, page number) and a list of references at the end of the article.

Submission Deadline – Submissions are due by June 15, 2023.
