Appel à articles : Special issue “Militarisation of societies”, Critical Studies on Security —  LIMITE : 01/05/2015

Of the many consequences of the ongoing global wars on and of terror, of invasion, and against insurgency, one of the most pervasive is the creeping militarisation of social life. We see this in celebrations, both spontaneous and orchestrated, of dead soldiers on their return from foreign invasion. We see it in the heightened visibilities of wars in the historical narratives of states. More broadly, we see it in our popular cultures, expressed in video games, films, television, music, sporting events, and elsewhere.

The growing militarisation of societies demands interrogation from critical scholars of security, and so Critical Studies on Security invites submissions on any instances and aspects of contemporary militarisation. Without seeking to limit the scope of these submissions, CSoS would welcome articles on the following themes:

1)    The militarisation of security practices;
2)    Commemoration, memorialisation, and militarisation;
3)    The militarisation of societies through invasion;
4)    Militarisation and popular culture, including but not limited to:
a.    Film and television
b.    Fashion
c.    Music
d.    Gaming
e.    Sport;
5)    The militarisation of childhood;
6)    The militarisation of history.

Submission Instructions

We welcome submissions from across the humanities and social sciences that are grounded in critical cultural, geographic, legal, political, and social approaches to security. Papers for our consideration should be a maximum of 8000 words including bibliography and notes.
