Call for Papers: Radicalizing Histories of Science and Technology

Radical History Review

Call for Papers: Radicalizing Histories of Science and Technology

Issue number 127 (January 2017)

Abstract Deadline: April 1, 2015

Issue editors: Simon Schaffer, David Serlin, and Jennifer Tucker

The Radical History Review invites proposals for submissions that put innovative scholarship from fields such as science and technology studies, environmental studies, and feminist, postcolonial and queer approaches to the STEM fields into dialogue with radical history. We are especially interested in submissions that reflect upon innovative interpretive sources and methods for producing new histories by scholars and activists who seek to make a radical political intervention into traditional academic disciplines.

Science, medicine, and technology are integral to the histories of many societies and cultures throughout the world. Yet contemporary case studies of science and technology often lack a broad historical perspective. Meanwhile, historical studies of science, medicine, and technology often take a limited theoretical or conceptual approach to their analysis. And mainstream histories often ignore their interpretation altogether. So how might social, political, and cultural histories look different if radical insights from science and technology studies were brought to bear on the analysis of society and culture? And how might conventional historical narratives look different if the boundary between the radical study of “history” and the radical study of “science and technology” were not assumed or taken for granted?

We invite scholars to share case studies from current research that deploy new approaches in theory and methodology across the humanities and social sciences. Contributions are particularly encouraged from scholars working on locales and on periods where models of knowledge and practice are very different from, or are to be contrasted with, current models of the sciences. To this end, the editors seek papers that focus on diverse historical periods as well as diverse geographical regions, populations, and objects of study. What novel issues, historical problems, and debates have arisen with the opening of new academic fields and new political and historical conditions?

The RHR publishes material in a variety of forms. Potential contributors are encouraged to look at recent issues for examples of both conventional and non-conventional forms of scholarship. We are especially interested in submissions that use images as well as texts and encourage materials with strong visual content. In addition to monographic articles based on archival research, we encourage submissions to our various departments, including:

• Historians at Work (reflective essays by practitioners in academic and non-academic settings that engage with questions of professional practice)

• Teaching Radical History (syllabi and commentary on teaching)

• Public History (essays on historical commemoration and the politics of the past)

• Interviews (proposals for interviews with scholars, activists, and others)

• (Re)Views (review essays on history in all media–print, film, and digital)

Procedures for submission of articles: By April 1, 2015, please submit a 1-2 page abstract summarizing the article you wish as an attachment to contactrhr[at]gmail[dot]com with “Issue 127 Abstract Submission” in the subject line. By June 1, 2015, authors will be notified whether they should submit a full version of their article for peer review. The due date for completed articles will be December 1, 2015.

Articles should be submitted electronically with “Issue 127 Submission” in the subject line. Please send any images as low-resolution digital files embedded in a Word document along with the text. If chosen for publication, you will need to send high-resolution image files (jpg or TIFF files at a minimum of 300 dpi) and secure permission to reprint all images. Those articles selected for publication after the peer review process will be included in issue 127 of the Radical History Review, scheduled to appear in January 2017.

Abstract Deadline: April 1, 2015

Call for Papers for a Special Issue of Virus Research: Systems Biology and Modeling of Viral Infection

Call for Papers for a Special Issue of Virus Research: Systems Biology and Modeling of Viral Infection

As obligate intracellular parasites, viruses rely heavily on host cell processes for virtually every single step in their lifecycle. They hijack cellular mechanisms e.g. for entry, intracellular transport, protein translation, genome replication and assembly of new viral particles, and redirect cellular resources for their own purposes. At the same time, complex defense mechanisms in the infected host are triggered, activating both the innate and adaptive immune responses to combat the infection, and usually virus and immune response mutually interfere with one another. Together, this leads to complex, dynamic interactions between the virus and its host, which cannot be understood by focusing on the pathogen alone.

Systems Biology is an emerging discipline that pursues a holistic approach in studying complex biological systems, focusing on the entire system and interactions between its building blocks instead of individual components in isolation. Usually, systems biology approaches involve high-throughput, quantitative and often dynamic experimental data acquisition, paired with sophisticated computational data analysis and / or mathematical modeling.

Edited by Volker Thiel and Lars Kaderali, Virus Research will publish a special issue on Systems Biology and Modeling of Viral Infection. The main focus of this special issue will be on research using systems biology and/or modeling approaches to study viral infection at all scales, from intracellular, molecular processes over processes in cell culture, tissues or organs to the organismal level. Both basic research and applied, clinical submissions are welcome. Example topics include, but are not limited to

• Host factors and virus-host interactions; Virus-Host Protein networks

• Viral evolution under selective pressure; systems biology of host tropism and host switching

• Systems biology of innate and adaptive immune responses to infection

• Systems pharmacology and systems biology of antiviral treatment

• High-throughput data analysis and machine learning approaches, leading to significant new insights into viral infection

• Transcriptomic and Proteomic characterization of host responses to infection

• Computational and mathematical modeling of infection and/or immune response

•  Infection dynamics

• Multiscale models of viral infection

Submissions will be peer reviewed, and accepted articles will be indexed in Virus Research. Please select the article type as SI: Systems biology

Articles are accepted until 30th April 2015, detailed instructions for submission can be found at the online submission system at http://www.elsevier.com/journals/virus-research/0168-1702/guide-for-authors

Call for Papers for a Special Issue of Research in Developmental Disabilities: Substance-Related and Addiction Disorders in Individuals With Mild Intellectual Disabilities

Research in Developmental Disabilities

Call for Papers for a Special Issue of Research in Developmental Disabilities: Substance-Related and Addiction Disorders in Individuals With Mild Intellectual Disabilities

A special issue of the Research in Developmental Disabilities will be devoted to empirical research articles investigating Substance-related and Addiction Disorders in Individuals with Mild Intellectual Disabilities. This topic has received increasing attention by clinicians and researchers during the last decades. Individuals with mild intellectual disabilities (MID; including those with borderline intellectual functioning – IQ 70-85) have been identified as being at risk for developing abuse of and addiction to a range of substances such as alcohol, cannabis, sedatives, ecstasy and cocaine (among others). Next to this, many individuals with MID (ab)use tobacco and psychotropic medication for mental health problems. It is generally agreed that substance-related and addiction disorders are a multifaceted problem which calls for a close collaboration between general psychiatry, addiction medicine and ID services. Despite the growing interest, the number of studies on prevalence, risk factors, effectiveness of treatment procedures and service provision to individuals with MID who abuse substances is still limited.

Research in Developmental Disabilities calls for papers dedicated to the investigation of substance-related and addiction disorders in individuals with mild intellectual disabilities. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

• prevalence and associated factors of substance (ab)use and addiction

• psychometric properties of instruments for measuring substance use and craving

• effectiveness of treatment programmes

• psychoeducation and health strategies

• developmental trajectories from initial use to abuse

• substance abuse, offending and risk assessment

• executive functioning and substance abuse

• cognitive biases and implicit associations

Consistent with the topic of the Special Issue, we expect the main focus to be on psychoactive substances but papers on gambling will be considered. Case reports and papers presenting outcomes of qualitative analyses will not be considered.

Manuscripts can be submitted from December 1st, 2014 onwards using the Editorial System. The final deadline for submissions is April 1st, 2015. Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the usual author guidelines. In their cover letter, authors must indicate that they wish their manuscript to be considered for the Special Issue on Substance-related and Addiction Disorders in individuals with mild intellectual disabilities. To discuss your contribution to this special issue, please contact Robert Didden (Guest Editor) via email: r.didden@pwo.ru.nl

Call for Papers for a Special Issue of Health and Human Rights Journal: the Evidence of Impact of Human Rights-Based Approaches to Health

Call for Papers for a Special Issue of Health and Human Rights Journal: the Evidence of Impact of Human Rights-Based Approaches to Health

Deadline: February 15, 2015

Guest Editors: Alicia Ely Yamin, Lecturer on Global Health and Policy Director, FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, Harvard University; Paul Hunt, Professor of Law, University of Essex; and Flavia Bustreo, Assistant Director-General for Family, Women’s and Children’s Health, World Health Organization.

Health and Human Rights Journal will be publishing a special issue in December 2015, with selected papers appearing online starting in August 2015, on the Evidence of Impact of Human Rights-Based Approaches to Health (HRBA).

The elements of HRBAs have been well-defined for over a decade, but we still face a paucity of evidence regarding their impact in political, symbolic and material terms. Indeed, in 2013, the WHO published a monograph analyzing the evidence of impact of an HRBA on aspects of women’s and children’s health (WCH). That study, the first of its kind, focused on the evidence of impact of governments’ human rights-shaped health interventions, with particular attention to the initiatives of the executive branch, such as Ministries of Health. The WHO monograph underscored the lack of research and evaluation on the impact of HRBAs, especially in relation to women’s and children’s health, and suggested that among other reasons, there was a ‘lack of clarity and agreement about the methods and tools needed to carry out research and evaluation’ of impact of an HRBA.[i]

For this special issue, Health and Human Rights Journal welcomes articles that explore issues related to the evidence of impact of HRBAs to health, initiated by both governments and other actors, including but not limited to women’s and children’s health. Articles may examine theoretical topics including the challenges and methodological considerations for considering what constitutes “evidence” as well as defining “impacts” of HRBAs to health; as well as present case studies of applications of HRBAs where empirical evidence of impact has been gathered.

Original articles (research, commentary, and analysis) suitable for scholarly peer review are invited (3,500–7,000 words). In addition to research papers, we seek manuscripts that emerge from and reflect on practical efforts for the realization of the right to health (up to 7,000 words). The form and style of these pieces is flexible, but they should be of genuine relevance to people engaged in related work. All papers will be peer reviewed.

The editors also invite brief research or fieldwork summaries, and short opinion or perspective essays (up to 2000 words) for publication as “Letters to the Editor.” These pieces might also be published separately on the Health and Human Rights Journal website at http://www.hhrjournal.org/perspectives/.
