Social Networks, Communities, and/or Public Service

_Proteus: A Journal of Ideas_ seeks submissions that explore themes relating to social networks, communities, and/or public service for an upcoming issue titled Building and Strengthening Communities and Social Networks. We are soliciting a wide range of articles and creative works—including broad theoretical inquiries, individual case studies, traditional scholarly articles, and works of creative nonfiction. Theme-related photographs, poetry, and creative writing are welcome.

Submissions might include—but are not limited to—articles that examine internet-based social networks or the formation and transformation of individual communities. We are also soliciting articles relating to the growing scholarship on social capital and on the interactions between government policies and communities. Submissions on the topics of public service or service learning are especially encouraged.

Proteus is a refereed journal that has been published continuously for more than twenty-five years and has featured the work of leading international scholars and commentators.
