Organization: Carus Books
Call for Abstracts
Post-Punk and Philosophy
Edited by Josh Heter & Richard Greene
Abstracts are sought for a collection of philosophical essays related to punk. This volume will be published by Carus Books (this is the same editorial team that was long with Open Court Publishing). We are seeking abstracts, but anyone who has already written an unpublished paper on this topic may submit it in its entirety. Potential contributors may want to examine other volumes we have edited to get a sense of what we are looking for (e.g., Punk Rock and Philosophy, Westworld and Philosophy, The Man in the High Castle and Philosophy, Conspiracy Theories and Philosophy, Quentin Tarantino and Philosophy, and The Princess Bride and Philosophy, etc.). The abstracts and resulting selected papers should be written for an educated but non-specialized audience.
Contributors are welcome to submit abstracts on any topic of philosophical interest that pertains to post-punk. We are happy to receive submissions that engage philosophical issues/topics/concepts in Punk in creative and non-standard ways.
We’re especially looking for chapter ideas based on post-punk 1977-1984 as well as post-punk revivals, but we’re also interested in and would accept submissions on post-punk and punk-adjacent bands broadly construed.
Please feel free to forward this to anyone writing within a philosophic discipline who might be interested in contributing.
1. Abstract of paper (100–750 words)
2. Resume/CV for each author/coauthor of the paper
3. Initial submission should be made by email (we prefer email with MS Word attachment)
Abstracts due 2/1/2023
