Arendt Studies publishes original research articles, review essays, and book reviews, and 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 Journal is interested in all areas of inquiry opened up by Arendt's questions, including but not limited to the philosophical dimensions of Arendt's work that illuminate pressing issues of our time.
Article submissions should contain 6,000-10,000 words. Submissions must include an abstract (up to 150 words), up to 5 keywords, and a reference list. All submitted manuscripts must be original, unpublished works and may not be under consideration at another publication.
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.
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.
Authors should submit manuscripts via email. Manuscripts should be submitted in Word format (.doc, .docx, .rtf), using Times New Roman font. Any reasonable formatting style for notes and references is fine at the time of submission. If the manuscript is accepted for publication the author will be asked to bring it into line with the journal's style (Chicago Manual of Style). A helpful resource on The Chicago Manual of Style is available here.
Article manuscripts must be prepared for blind review with the author’s name and affiliation appearing only on the first, detachable page. If the manuscript contains words in languages other than English it is best to send both PDF and Word versions to ensure formatting consistency.
