New Proposals: Journal of Marxism and Interdisciplinary Inquiry

A transnational, peer-reviewed journal of Marxism and interdisciplinary inquiry that is dedicated to the radical transformation of the contemporary world order.

Our Mandate:

This journal represents an attempt to explore issues, ideas, and problems that lie at the intersection between the academic disciplines of social science and the body of thought and political practice that has constituted Marxism over the last 150 years. New Proposals is a journal of Marxism and interdisciplinary Inquiry that is dedicated to the radical transformation of the contemporary world order. We see our role as providing a platform for research, commentary, and debate of the highest scholarly quality that contributes to the struggle to create a more just and humane world, in which the systematic and continuous exploitation, oppression, and fratricidal struggles that characterize the contemporary sociopolitical order no longer exist.

Call for Papers

New Proposals calls for submissions of papers, commentaries, reflections and photo essays that showcase progressive scholarship.

We are interested in full-length articles (normally 3,500 to 10,000 words) as well as shorter comments and arguments (up to 3,500 words). We also welcome short research reports (up to 1,500 words) summarizing the theoretical framework, methodology, and preliminary results of research projects that draw on progressive research traditions.

Special Call for papers on AlienationThis special issue of New Proposals seeks to collect and showcase scholarship primarily concerned with using, refining, or deploying the concept of alienation. Given the diverse expressions of alienation we invite contributions that explore the historical, analytical, and practical underpinnings of the concept, its contemporary fate, and speculations on the trajectory of this idea.

New Proposals is a transnational peer-reviewed journal hosted at The University of British Columbia in collaboration with the UBC Library EJournal Project.
