Faculty and graduate students are invited to submit polished papers dealing with civil strife in its myriad thematic forms. Selected articles will be published in 2013 in a special volume as part of a conference series published by Cambridge Scholars Publishers. This call is for articles within English and the humanities as well as the social sciences and other connected fields of inquiry that allow 'civil strife' to be examined from a wide array of perspectives. The following list proposes a series of topics and themes that allow for theoretical, practical, and pedagogical inquiries and is certainly not exhaustive. Based on submissions received, this monograph publication will focus on selected areas.

• Literary, historical, or psychological perspectives of civil strife
• Political, social, religious, or ethnic perspectives of civil strife
• Humanitarian issues
• Peace issues
• Civil wars
• International conflicts
• Civil rights movements
• Environmental issues
• Communication and linguistic issues of civil strife
• Conflict resolution
• College and classroom conflict
• Curricular design of civil strife issues
• Theoretical inquiries
• Critical research

All papers are limited to no more than 5,000 words, and shorter papers are welcome. Please include with the completed article an abstract, the article title, your name, college or university affiliation, mailing address, e-mail address, and phone number.

Please submit your work by November 30, 2012 to Nancy Riecken at or Linda Urschel at

All submissions will be reviewed and authors will be notified during the Spring 2013 semester.
