Call for Papers: Narratives of (In) Security: Nationhood, Culture, Religion, and Gender

Posted by Aleksandra Cichocka •

A special issue of Political Psychology will focus on the psychological dimensions of narratives and myths. In particular, contributions to the special issue should ask how identity and agency are constructed and acted upon in relation to narratives of societal and existential security and insecurity. Some of the most significant master narratives of security involve ideas about nationhood, culture, religion, and gender. As narratives, they serve as powerful linkages between past, present and the future as they are told, experienced and sometimes mythologized in conceptions of self and other. The editors especially welcome manuscripts that disclose how narratives of security are mutually related and how they form political identities and act as co-constructors of individuals’ and groups’ self-identity in relation to significant others. We encourage both theoretical and empirical contributions.

The co-editors of the special issue – Molly Andrews, Catarina Kinnvall and Kristen Monroe – ask that people submit their papers by May 31, 2012. All papers will be reviewed and returned within approximately three months. All revise and resubmits should be returned by November 30, 2012 in order to appear in the June or October 2013 issue of Political Psychology.

Potential contributors with questions should contact the co-editors:

Molly Andrews at M.Andrews@UEL.AC.UK
Catarina Kinnvall at Catarina.Kinnvall@svet.lu.se
Kristen Monroe at KRMonroe@UCI.Edu

For promotion we are going to rely on a couple methods, mostly word of mouth, but also a small online campaign. Luckily we have a volunteer who has experience with internet marketing so we won't be wasting money trying to compete in the wrong places.
