CFP: Crossroads for Nonviolent Praxis and Theory / The Acorn

Submission deadline: June 8, 2020

Topic areas


With alarm bells already sounding warnings of global heating, with wars driving refugees over land and sea only to be rebuffed by walls of indifference, and with violent supremacists asserting dominance over terms of civic life, we are now faced with a literal pandemic.

Whereas many are practically intensifying resort to armament under these threatening conditions, a philosophy of nonviolence is not yet weary of nurturing theory and praxis that takes us forward with positive peace and justice. Witness for example how values of bravery, selflessness, and devotion to service are being manifested in the work of doctors, nurses, first responders, volunteers, and persons employed in providing critical services and supplies.

At these crossroads, at this time--and mindful of the words of César Chávez that “The answer lies with you and me”--we invite philosophers to help set forth the case that can be made for discerning, for choosing, and for prevailing with nonviolence.

Manuscripts should be submitted via email, with “Acorn Journal Submission” in the subject line, to the Editor, Greg Moses, at RM95 -at- txstate -dot- edu. Please indicate in the body of the email that the submission is neither previously published nor simultaneous.
