CFP: Critical Military Studies journal

We are delighted to announce the first call for papers for Critical
Military Studies:

Critical Military Studies is a new peer-reviewed academic journal which
will be published by Taylor and Francis from 2015. Critical Military
Studies provides a rigorous and innovative platform for
interdisciplinary debate on the operation of military power. As an
international peer-reviewed journal Critical Military Studies publishes
scholarly work conceptualizing, critiquing and challenging accepted
orthodoxies on all aspects of military power and institutions.

Critical Military Studies is a space for the interrogation and
destabilization of often taken-for-granted categories related to the
military, militarism and militarization. It welcomes original thinking
on the contradictions and tensions that are central to the ways in which
military institutions and military power work. It analyses how these
tensions are reproduced within different societies and geopolitical
arenas, and within and beyond academic discourse. Conceptual, empirical
and theoretical contributions on experiences of militarization among
groups and individuals, and in hitherto underexplored, perhaps even
seemingly ‘non-military’ settings are also especially encouraged.

In addition to research articles, Critical Military Studies includes an
Encounters section, which provides an open space for original creative
work and alternative forms of critique. For Encounters we invite
submissions developed through engagement with social and political life,
environmental issues, cultural production, the arts and media. We
encourage contributions that explore diverse modes of representation
such as: interviews; exploratory or speculative ‘think pieces’; fiction;
reportage; book, film and theatre reviews; visual arts; and pedagogic or
methodological reflections.

In 2015 Critical Military Studies will offer two prizes:
• Best manuscript submitted by an emergent scholar, with a prize of
• Established scholar award with a prize of $US200

Please see the Call for Papers above for more information or contact the
Editor Dr Victoria Basham or
Editorial Assistant Dr Jess Gifkins with queries.
