disClosure is an annual thematic publication dedicated to investigating and stimulating interest in new directions in contemporary social theory. The forthcoming Spring 2015 issue will draw on the work of a variety of scholars, artists, and acclaimed members of academia from a social theoretical perspective. The journal will include a variety of media including scholarly essays, poetry and visual art.

This year’s issue will address concerns over Market Failures, Famines, and Crises, which permeate our globalizing world. It is indeed difficult to think of facets of social life that are not touched by the questions of market instability and food insecurity: how has all this happened, and how do we theorize it? Whose markets, famines, and crises are we talking about? Where is our society headed in terms of employment, growth, and private ownership? Where are the points of intervention by the state and international institutions in the midst of turbulent markets and insecure food supplies?

Potential submissions may explore topics regarding the changing functions, configurations, and meanings of market crises and famines in our society; our understanding of the relationship between the economy, culture and territorial power in formulating theories of markets; how crises and famines get defined, by whom, and the ways they are practiced in different states and economies in the world. More details and possible topics are available in the attached Call for Papers or by contacting Grace Cale or Lydia Roll at
