JSR: Journal for the Study of Radicalism—an academic journal published by Michigan State University Press—announces a call for articles and reviews for our fifteenth year of issues.

CFA: Religious Radicalism

We are interested in articles that explore specific subjects related to religious forms of radicalism, be it a radical individual, a radical group, a movement, some other type or manifestation of religious radicalism. Millenarianism, development of a new religious movement with political dimensions, apocalyptic sects or movements, all are of interest here if they seek the sudden dramatic transformation of society through violent or non-violent means.

For our coming issues, we also are particularly interested in articles that address the history of anarchism, Black Bloc activism, Antifa, and ecological radicalism.

Submissions should be 20-30 pages in length, in .doc format, and conform to Chicago Manual of Style endnotes. Please include a one-paragraph abstract. Images for possible use in an article should be 300 dpi. Authors are responsible for requesting and receiving permission to reprint images for scholarly use.

Send completed articles to the editors at by July 15, 2020 to be in time for the next issue; but we can accept articles throughout the year, and our subsequent deadline will be January 15, 2021.
