Call for Papers - Journal of Global Security Studies (JoGSS)

The field of security studies has undergone significant change over the past two decades, becoming ever broader in outlook. It now encompasses a wide variety of concerns and approaches ranging from traditional questions about great power relations and policy-oriented discussions of counterinsurgency practices to critical work on human security and the securitization of migration or global warming.

Against this backdrop, at its March 2014 meeting the ISA Governing Council approved a new ISA journal: the Journal of Global Security Studies (JoGSS) which will launch its first issue in January 2016.  The mission of JoGSS is to publish first-rate work from across the entire range of methodological, epistemological, theoretical, normative, and empirical concerns reflected in the field of global security studies and, more importantly, encourage dialogue, engagement, and conversation across different parts of the field.  

In pursuit of this mission, the editorial team calls for paper proposals to be part of JoGSS’s first special issue on the theme of the future of global security (studies).  We are particularly interested in proposals making a strong and compelling argument about what the future of global security studies will (or should) be that explicitly engages a variety of relevant perspectives.

The editors hope to receive proposals based on ongoing work and creatively addressing some of the following questions: (1) How should we think of security? Whose security and what kind of security should we focus on? Should we be segmenting off different perspectives or exploring the links between them (or both)?  (2) How should we think about global security? What are, or will be, the most pressing global security concerns and issues, and can we separate them from national or regional ones? How might we engage with all that global entails? (3) How should we study global security?  What are the most promising approaches and theories, and what are the shortcomings of existing approaches in the field of security studies? How can we assemble the knowledge we have accumulated in the field to formulate and address questions in ways that do service to the wide variety of approaches?

We will invite authors of promising proposals to submit draft papers and authors of the most promising papers to a workshop from which we will craft a special issue of the journal.

Proposals (800 words) due: August 15. Please email proposals in MS Word format to Jill Hereau, jill.schmiederhereau@du.edu.   

Paper invitations issued: September 1

Draft papers (approximately 8,000 words) due: December 30.

Workshop: April 30-May 2 2015, University of Denver (author travel and accommodations will be covered by JoGSS).
