Political Perspectives: Journal Issue Call for Papers
Uncertain Times through the Eyes of Contemporary Politics Research
Current PhD students and early career researchers are working in times of global
uncertainty. The war in Ukraine, the cost of living crisis, tensions over Taiwan, widespread, industrial action, and the global repercussions of COVID-19 are among the abiding political challenges of recent years. Longer term debates rage over the efficacy of environmental COP summits, culture war clashes, the health of democracy across the
globe, the legacy of Brexit, and the (ab)uses of social media. These debates are not just
objects of study for politics researchers but form a complex landscape which academics
must navigate. Politics researchers steer through these turbulent times in a wide range
of ways, embracing innovative methods, challenging dominant theoretical frameworks
and destabilising established orthodoxies.
Political Perspectives invites papers that deal with these themes, as well as other
important issues. The burning debates which set the scene for the beginning of 2023
inform the work of scholars across both national and disciplinary borders. Contributions
are welcome from all sub-disciplines, and submissions are encouraged from other
approaches in the field of social science that are relevant to politics. We seek to draw
together the latest theoretical and empirical research from PhD students and early
career researchers, covering a range of articles dealing with contemporary political
issues and challenges.
