Call for Papers

Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change, Volume 37

Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change, a peer-reviewed volume published by Emerald Group Publishing, encourages submissions for Volume 37 of the series.

This volume will include research in two areas: (1) submissions which have a thematic focus on examples and analytical analyses of intersectionality and marginalized identities in social movements, conflicts and social change; and (2) general submissions appropriate to any of the three broad foci reflected in the RSMCC series title. The volume will be guest edited by Lynne M. Woehrle(Mount Mary University). Submissions on the following topics are especially encouraged: intersectionality (race, class, gender, LGBTQ), identity in conflict or in social movements, challenges faced by multicultural social movements, social power and marginalization in social change, comparative or case studies of conflicts or movements shaped by intersectionality and/or cultural marginalization.

Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change (RSMCC) is a fully peer-reviewed series of original research that has been published annually for over 30 years. We continue to publish the work of many of the leading scholars in social movements, social change, and peace and conflict studies. Although RSMCC enjoys a wide library subscription base for the book versions, all volumes are now published both in book form and are also available online to subscribing libraries through Emerald Insight. This ensures wider distribution and easier online access to your scholarship while maintaining the esteemed book series at the same time.

RSMCC boasts quick turn-around times, generally communicating peer reviewed-informed decisions within 10-12 weeks of receipt of submissions.
