IPS Call for Papers 2016



International Political Sociology is one of six journals supported by the International Studies Association. It responds to the need for more productive collaboration among sociologists, international relations specialists and sociopolitical theorists. Being a venue for theoretical and empirical innovation in the field of international relations, IPS strongly encourages transdisciplinary analysis of contemporary world phenomena by offering a meeting space for scholars from all over the world. Issues of special concern are the challenges arising from contemporary transformations of social, political, and global orders given the statist forms of traditional sociologies and the marginalization of social processes in many approaches to international relations. IPS draws especially on traditions of historical, legal, economic, cultural and political sociology, as well as on the burgeoning literature on socio-political theory, anthropology and human geography. It is committed to theoretical innovation, to the decentering of dominant modes of production of knowledge, to new modes of empirical research and the geographical and cultural diversification of research beyond the usual circuits of European and North-American scholarship.

The journal invites research papers that take our understanding of international, transnational and global phenomena out of the comfort zone of familiar approaches. We are committed to publishing innovative and critical work at the interstices of the social, the political and the cultural in world politics. Currently we are particularly interested in receiving papers on new developments in post-colonial and decolonial approaches,  question of transversal citizenship, the international re-politicisation of inequality, new debates in feminism, the politics of methods, eand critical engagement with practice theory.

IPS allows for submission in languages other than English. As long as the editorial team can arrange for proper anonymous peer reviews in the language of submission, authors will only be asked to arrange for translation into English when the article has been accepted for publication. Please contact IPS editorial office—ips@puc-rio.br—if you would like to know more about submitting in languages other than English.
