Evolutionary Studies in Imaginative Culture publishes scholarly and scientific articles and reviews on every aspect of imaginative culture: literature, film, theater, television, music, religion, the visual arts, video games, and other media. Works of imaginative culture would include both canonical and popular forms of literature, art, and other media, comics, fads and fashions, hobby groups, sports cultures, creative non-fiction, and the imaginative manifestations of politics, ethnicity, ideology, religion, and other forms of group identity. Articles are written in English, but subject matter can include works from any language and any historical period.
The central qualification for contributing to the journal is to regard works of imaginative culture as arising out of human nature—the evolved and adapted character of the human mind. While sharing a common concern with locating cultural products in human nature, contributors can focus on divergent or multiple features of cultural artifacts: their depicted content, emotional qualities, or structural and stylistic features; aesthetic and intellectual traditions; the responses of readers or viewers; the motives and character of authors or other artists; the ecological and sociopolitical context within which imaginative works are produced; or the psychological or social functions the works fulfill.
Journal of Contemporary Antisemitism
ISSN 2472-9914 (Print) / ISSN 2472-9906 (Online)
Journal of Contemporary Antisemitism, which is among the very few journals exclusively dedicated to the analysis of antisemitism, covers all forms of antisemitism found in our contemporary world. Our interest is on the post-Holocaust era. However, submissions can include empirical studies dealing with 19th or early 20th century examples, if they are connected to today’s antisemitism. Our focus, though, shall be 21st century forms of antisemitism, from Islamist antisemitism in Europe, the West, or the Arab and Muslim worlds, to Holocaust distortion in post-colonial or East European scholarship and activism, to conspiracy driven, or ‘old-style’ Christian and secular characteristics of antisemitism.
We invite scholars from all relevant disciplines across the social sciences and humanities to send us their original research articles. Overseen by an international team of editors, this rigorously peer-reviewed journal provides a forum where scholars from diverse political and intellectual backgrounds can analyze, debate, and formulate effective responses to the ever-evolving and insidious threat of Jew-hatred.
