Message 2: Perspectives - Journal for Interdisciplinary work in the Humanities

Date: Sat, 1 Sep 2001 20:06:28 +0100
From:, MA <>
Subject: Perspectives - Journal for Interdisciplinary work in the Humanities


Why here? Our aim is a new interdisciplinarity. To us, this concept
does not mean the dilution of disciplines into a vague concept of
something which pretends to be all, but really is nothing, but we would
like to build interdisciplinarity on the firm foundations of
disciplinary work and knowledge. Therefore, we need the contact with
professionals of the disciplines. Being a linguist by discipline
myself, I am sure there are quite a few LINGUIST readers 'out there'
who would like to participate in a (re-)connection of linguistics with
the rest of the Humanities.)

This new journal, published at Oxford Brookes University Humanities
Research Centre, addresses an international audience of post-graduate
students and scholars engaged in interdisciplinary work within the
Humanities. It is a bi-annual on-line publication, accompanied by a
(weekly updated) website for discussion and workshopping of ideas .
The journal aims at creating a new interdisciplinary community of people
working beyond the limits of the established split into disciplines.
Thus, our concept of "The Humanities" is an open one, it comprises the
traditional Humanities as easily as what has come to be called Social
Sciences and other related fields (and areas of interest).

We invite articles for our next number.

This is not restricted to any particular theme. We are convinced that
there are many authors 'out there' looking for a place to publish
their interdisciplinary work, whose work, however, would not fall under
any category of our themed isssues. So, this time you are absolutely
free to submit your interdisciplinary work without any restriction to
its subject, whatsoever.

Deadline for submission of articles: 15 January 2002

Please send enquiries and proposals to the editors at:

The language of the journal is English. Articles requiring translation
will not be accepted. The length of articles should range from 1500 to
5000 words, occasionally, however, exceptional features of up to 15000
words can be published. Book reviews should not exceed 1000 words. All
contributors will be required to submit the article either as
plain-text e-mail or as an e-mail attachment (TeX-format preferred,
SGML, RTF and, if really necessary, Word-doc possible). A style-sheet
can be obtained from the editors.
