Appel à articles : E-Journal of the Centre for Islamic Shi‘a Studies (CISS) — LIMITE : appel ouvert
The Centre for Islamic Shi‘a Studies (CISS) invites the submission of papers for its e-journal to be re-launched in the beginning of 2015. The particular aim of the journal is to make academic research accessible to the wider community and to facilitate dialogue between academic scholarship on Shi’a Islam and the Shi’a hawza tradition.
The submitted articles do not need to constitute new and original research but can be abridged versions or translations of research already published with the aim to make it accessible to a wider audience. Submission should not be longer than 5,000 words and can be in English or Arabic. We particularly encourage submissions from PhD students and early-career researchers.
The material will cover all areas of Shi‘a Studies, from the historical to the contemporary and from the theological and philosophical to the sociological and ethnographic. .
The CISS, which has a prestigious advisory board that forms the backbone of the centre, specialises in the study of intellectual traditions and scholarly outputs, articulated by persons or entities committed to the Shi’a Islamic faith, and/or persons or groups concerned with the academic study of Shi’a Islamic both past and present. It aims to offer informed and scholarly perspectives on historical and contemporary issues that affect Muslims and non-Muslims alike. The CISS endeavours to offer original and insightful analysis drawing from both traditional seminarian traditions and contemporary academic discourses. It is particularly committed to expanding the reach of scholarship beyond traditional and contemporary academic discourses in the field of Shi’a Studies.
