BEYOND CAPITALISM: CRITICAL THEORY FOR RADICAL DEMOCRACY

Open Call for Papers

Heathwood Press: An Independent Critical Organisation for Social Progress

Call for Papers: We are seeking contributions from a diversity of authors and researchers concerning discussions on post-capitalist society and the development of radical (participatory) democratic alternatives. This project is broad in scope, and we welcome papers and articles from across all disciplines: from economics and law to education, social sciences and the environment. We prefer works that directly emphasize an interdisciplinary approach and express an understanding of the aims of our critical theoretical project. One example of a proposal already received is a paper on 21st Century critical theory and radical (participatory) grassroots politics. Another example is a project that aims to establish a fundamental critique of violence in education, with a mind toward a foundational alternative philosophy of education.

Papers will be published online.

Before contacting us, please familiarize yourself with our project and past publications: http://www.heathwoodpress.com/advancing-frankfurt-school-critical-theory/

To contact us about this open call, please write to: enquiries[at]heathwoodpress.com
