“It is quite common to hear high officials in Washington and elsewhere speak of changing the map of the Middle East, as if ancient societies and myriad peoples can be shaken up like so many peanuts in a jar.”

― Edward W. Said

Request for Contributions to the blog, Subaltern States, published by E-International Relations magazine

Subject: Request for Contributions to the blog, Subaltern States, published by E-International Relations magazine

Dear All,

The new school year is upon us -- at least it has already started now in Florida!  I am writing to inquire and to encourage you to contribute a post this year to the blog, Subaltern States, for which I am curator for E-International Relations magazine.  If you have summer travel reports, case study summaries, books of interest, or otherwise something that you would like to say that links micro-level politics anywhere in the world with issues that matter to us as scholars more broadly, please do send something in.

The turnaround time to date has usually been three to four weeks.  It is a venue to say things that you have wanted to say that do not fit well within other, more formal academic venues.  It can be rewarding because of the quick turnaround time, as well as the opportunity to say something less formal that you may be wanting to say to a broader audience outside of your immediate environs.

The audience for E-International Relations magazine is international but leans toward faculty and students in the UK and EU.  Posts are meant to evoke thought among faculty and students; some faculty use the blog posts on E-International Relations as a classroom device to encourage classroom discussion.  The magazine has had contributions from weighty figures in the academic world, including Ted Gurr and Immanuel Wallerstein.

Contributions should be 400-1000 words (1000 max) and should use hyperlinks rather than citations.  Please send blog pieces to me at pjsohn (at) ufl.edu, or to the blogs editor at blogs@e-ir.info.   If you send a blog piece to the blogs editor, please do not forget to mention the blog, Subaltern States, or me by name.

Thank you very much for considering it!

All best regards,

Patricia Sohn
