Arendt Studies


Arendt Studies publishes research articles, review essays and books reviews. It welcomes contributions from all relevant areas, including philosophy, politics and international relations, history, Jewish studies, women’s and gender studies, postcolonial theory, and literary theory. The editorial team is particularly interested in the philosophical dimensions of Arendt’s work and how they might illuminate pressing issues in philosophy, politics and society today.


Article submissions should contain 6,000–10,000 words inclusive of notes, tables, and references, an abstract of 100–150 words, a word count, and five keywords. All submitted manuscripts must be original, unpublished works and may not be under consideration at another publication.

Article manuscripts must be prepared for blind review with the author’s name and affiliation appearing only on the first, detachable page. A standard style sheet (for example, Chicago Manual of Style or MLA) should be used, with endnotes listed at the end. If the manuscript contains words in any language other than English, it is best to send both PDF and Word (.doc or .docx) files to ensure formatting consistency.

Review Essays

The journal publishes reviews of two or more books aiming to illuminate larger issues in Arendt scholarship broadly conceived. Review essays should normally be within a 1,500- to 2,500-word range, and the length will be agreed beforehand with the Editors. The journal welcomes proposals for review essays. Please identify the books you want to review, explain why it is useful to consider them together, and give a brief outline of your main argument.

Book Reviews

The journal publishes solicited reviews of single books with a maximum length of 800 words. If you are interested in writing reviews for the journal send a brief CV with a statement of interests by email to the address below.
