Sura P. Rath, Journal of Contemporary Thought

The Journal of Contemporary Thought invites submissions for its forthcoming issue on "Space and Spatiality: Public, Private, and Hybrid Third Spaces" expected to come out this fall. The journal seeks innovative theoretical readings of familiar topics. The concept of space, for example, may be approached from a geographic or a psychological or a physiological perspective. Some papers may consider real space, virtual space, or even imaginary space--space as as a given, or space as a construct--or even deconstruct the whole notion of space. Others may approach space as a point of social/cultural contrast for identity formation and self-definition.
