Call for Papers: “Middle East – Topics & Arguments”‘s next issue: “Periphery”

The next issue of “Middle East – Topics & Arguments” (META), which will be entitled “Periphery” is looking for submissions. Its focus will be on the spatial differentiation and processes of social and political change in the Middle East and North Africa.

In this context, “peripheries” will not be understood as a given or static entity that needs to be localized but that they emerge through complex processes influenced by changing demographics, economic relations, political decision-making and socio-cultural norms and values. Furthermore, “peripheries” are closely knit to an uneven distribution of power and access to material as well as symbolic goods which perpetuates and stresses the existence of “centers” over the marginalized “peripheries”.

The call for papers is open for scholars of all disciplines including sociology, political sciences, cultural and media studies but also economics and anthropology writing from both synchronic and diachronic perspectives.

The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2015. You can find more information and the entire CfP here.
