CFP: ESQ’s New Feature – Provocations

CFP: ESQ – Provocations

ESQ welcomes submissions for a new feature: Provocations may respond concisely to an important scholarly or professional question; propose and/or model a new critical methodology; articulate scholarly or professional desiderata; or reflect briefly on an urgent concern for research, pedagogy, and/or scholarship as it impacts public life. Intended to spark debate, Provocations narratives may encompass single-author views, dialogues, or forums. Conversations involving two or more individuals might feature established and emerging scholars, synergistic or conflicting methodological perspectives, regional and national foci, or reflections on canonical and outsider authors. Whether playful or serious, imaginative or pedagogical, one voice or many, contributions should wake readers up. Most submissions will be 1,000-2,000 words, but authors may query the journal about longer projects. Provocations will appear whenever the journal receives suitable selections; submissions will be peer-reviewed, with contributors allowed broad scope concerning subject matter, perspective, and approach. Prospective contributors seeking further guidance are welcome to contact the editor at
