Works and Days
Works and Days HomepageArchiveSubscribeEditorsContactLinks
Works and Days provides a scholarly forum for the exploration of problems in cultural studies, pedagogy, and institutional critique, especially as they are impacted by the global economic crisis of late capitalism.  Whereas most scholarly journals publish groups of relatively unrelated essays, each volume of Works and Days focuses on a specific issue, and contributors are encouraged to share their work with each other.

Recent special issues of the Works and Days journal have focused on the effect of globalization on women and the environment, the attacks on academic freedom, the privatization of higher education under neoliberal capitalism, the increasing exploitation of part-time, temporary faculty, the shift from print to electronic media, and the politics of knowledge.

We are eager to hear from anyone already at work on projects suitable for publication in Works and Days. We also encourage proposals for joint projects and will assist in their formation. In addition, we invite participants in symposia, conferences, and other research groups to consider developing their work through online collaboration and publishing their outcomes as special issues of Works and Days.





SCHOLACTIVISM: Reflections on Transforming Praxis Inside and Outside the Classroom
A special joint issue of Works & Days and Cultural Logic
Proposals due: Oct. 1, 2014
Submissions due: June 1, 2015
To appear: Fall 2015
Edited by Joseph G. Ramsey
Where do radical scholarship, teaching, and activism connect? How do academics at present engage in activism? What are the strengths and weaknesses of prevailing modes of scholar-activist political praxis? What should effective activism produce inside and outside the classroom? What can we learn, both positively and negatively, from past attempts at radical intellectual-political praxis? What pitfalls threaten such interventions? What opportunities for transformative praxis are being opened up in the current conjuncture of crisis-racked neoliberal capitalism? In our writing, our teaching, in advocacy, conversation, and correspondence: how do we relate to the notion of 'activism' in theory and in practice? We welcome contributions of any form or length that address any of the above questions or that contribute to any of the following tasks. Please see the complete CFP. Send inquires, proposals, or submissions to jgramsey@gmail.com. Also visit Cultural Logic for more information.
