Next Issue CFP

Studies In Control Societies is seeking submissions for the Spring 2018 issue.

We invite submissions that explore the technologies and transformations in state power, political economy, and subjectivity that control societies engender. For Spring, we are especially interested in articles that deal with relations of power, control, and technology and their intersections with race, class, and gender.

Some additional suggested topics include:

Techniques of commercial, state, and workplace surveillance, the relationship between new media and temporality, scholarship on techniques of discipline and control, Fordism and post-Fordism, practices of prediction, identification, and authentication and the intersection of these practices with race, gender, and class, data-based governance practices, the philosophy of data and information, the normalization of surveillance in popular culture, visual cultures of control societies, art and activist responses to control societies, and the consequences of new media more broadly (on work, on leisure, on temporality, on industry, on policing, on governance, etc.).

Please send articles of 4,000-8,000 words or book reviews of 2,000-5,000 words to studiesincontrolsocieties@gmail.com no later than March 15, 2018 in order to be considered for publication. Please see the Guidelines for Submissions prior to submitting your manuscript.
