Speculations, a journal for speculative realist thought, invites submissions for its second volume. Given the intrinsically open and unconstrained nature of the arena for speculative thought which Speculations aims at embodying — and in view of the favourable reception of the inaugural issue — our aim in the second volume is to broaden the range and ambition of the journal. In accordance with speculative realism’s mandate to open philosophy to the richness of reality, we particularly encourage scholars to engage with speculative realism from disciplines beyond philosophy. We therefore welcome papers discussing speculative realism’s renewed philosophical concern with the non-human world from a wide array of disciplines.
Speculations is an open-access and peer-reviewed journal that hopes to provide a forum for the exploration of speculative realism and post-continental philosophy. Our aim is to facilitate discussion about ongoing developments within and around speculative realism. We accept short position papers, full length articles and book reviews.
Potential authors should make sure to go through the ‘Submission Checklist’ before submitting which can be found at: http://speculationsjournal.org/. Articles should be no longer than 8,000 words and follow the Chicago Manual of Style (http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html).
The deadline for submission is the 8th of January 2011.
Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
