CALL FOR PAPERS: Vol 6(1), October 2018
Exchanges: the Warwick Research Journal is the peer-reviewed, open access, interdisciplinary research journal of the Institute of Advanced Study (IAS), University of Warwick. We are inviting high-quality interdisciplinary submissions from researchers at all stages of their careers in all academic fields.
For the October 2018 edition, we particularly welcome submissions which will contribute to a themed section on ‘Autonomy’. Autonomy is the right or condition of self-government (‘autonomos’ means ‘having its own laws’). It therefore suggests freedom and independence, for example, of an atom, an organism, an object, the self (the mind and the body), a community (especially of minorities), an organisation, a government, and a country/nation/region. How can autonomy be achieved? By votes, negotiations, wars, and technology? How can autonomy be understood in this increasingly interconnected, interactive, interdependent, globalised world? Does autonomy promote or hinder social equality? In the specific context of research, what does the autonomy of each discipline mean, especially in inter/multi-disciplinary and collaborative research? How does current research environment impact the autonomy of research and researchers?
Submissions which do not engage with the theme of ‘Autonomy’ are also welcome.
