Journal of Hate Studies: Call for Papers
The Journal of Hate Studies is an international scholarly journal promoting the sharing of interdisciplinary ideas and research relating to the study of what hate is, where it comes from, and how to combat it. It presents cutting-edge essays, theory, and research that deepen the understanding of the development and expression of hate. The Journal aims to provide a deeper understanding of the processes that encourage the expression of hate so that methods of challenging and stopping its expression may be based on theory and research. The Journal reflects the optimism that as hate is understood, it can be contained and controlled allowing for persons to reach their full human potential without fear of retribution.
Writing and Content:
The Journal seeks articles written with precision and depth, and that are compelling for a wide audience. Articles accepted for publication are citation-based (APA style), with high quality underlying philosophical and psychological development of thought. A primary criterion for acceptance is the level to which the article enriches, extends, and advances the study and understanding of hate in its multiplicity of forms.
Call for Papers:
The Journal of Hate Studies welcomes original papers treating the theme, "Hate and Political Discourse", from a wide range of disciplines, including history, law, philosophy, political science, sociology, criminal justice, social psychology, economics, anthropology, geography, journalism, communications, rhetoric, literature, educational studies, and cultural studies.
