News Call for papers - Voice and water

E-pisteme, a postgraduate e-journal based in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Newcastle University, is dedicated to publishing fresh and vibrant research of the highest quality from postgraduate students and postdoctoral scholars. The journal focuses on themes that reach across disciplines, seeking to challenge traditionally defined ways of thinking and doing research. E-pisteme is designed as a forum for international academic exchange and aims to publish peer-reviewed scholarly articles by new researchers, providing an opportunity for postgraduates to write in an academic style for an interdisciplinary readership.

E-pisteme is now accepting articles for its inaugural issue on the theme of 'VOICE'. The issue aims to explore some of the complexities of the concept 'voice' by bringing together contributions of masters, doctoral and postdoctoral researchers working in a variety of disciplines across the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Suggested areas for articles include, but are not restricted to:
Voice and Identity
Voice and Power
Marginalized voices (linguistic, cultural, political, etc.) The 'death of the author'?
Forbidden voices - Censorship
Translating Voices
Voice and the Media
Contributions on voices and water (e.g. social mouvements related to water issues, representativeness of water users, ...) are also welcome.
