[UPDATE] Unstable states, mutable conditions

updated: 
Tuesday, September 29, 2015 - 6:16am
/ANGLES/, journal published by the SAES

Call for papers

There is a particular instability proper to the English-speaking world in which mutability seems to be of the essence, as when Shakespeare alternated sea and land in Sonnet 64:

When I have seen the hungry ocean gain
Advantage on the kingdom of the shore,
And the firm soil win of the wat'ry main,
Increasing store with loss, and loss with store;
When I have seen such interchange of state,
Or state itself confounded to decay

The point is also made in a more explicitly political mode by Caliban in The Tempest, suggesting that the absolute of sovereignty is, in fact, contingent, reversible:

Journal of Studies in History & Culture

In our upcoming issue we would take into consideration the disparate and contradictory interpretations of secularism the world over. The structures of secularism and their outreach would be central to the methodology. While research within the broader framework of intellectual history is welcome, we would also like to include papers tracing the morphology of the concept, its reception and practice both on the level of individuals as well as part of state policy.
