Call for Papers

 

Submission Deadline for volume 9, issue 1: March 15th, 2022

The 2022 spring issue is an open issue where we will accept partnership and cultural transformation papers from a wide variety of fields. Papers are due March 15th unless arrangements have been made with the managing editor.

Partnership Studies analyzes social institutions and beliefs from the perspective of where they fall on the partnership/domination continuum, illuminating how they affect all aspects of life and every social institution, from the family, education, and religion to politics, economics, and mass media. Partnership Studies provides an integrative perspective for understanding and transforming beliefs and social institutions that takes into account the cultural construction of formative relations, which are still generally ignored or marginalized in the canon. It pays special attention to findings from neuroscience showing that our brains develop in interaction with our environments, especially in our early years, and that how a society constructs the roles and relations of males and females impacts not only women’s and men’s life choices but also the society’s values, beliefs, and institutions. Partnership Studies helps us “connect the dots” in new ways to reveal dynamics that are otherwise invisible.

Submission Deadline for volume 9, issue 2: August 15th, 2022

In honor of the life and work of Dr. David Loye, the theme of the second issue of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies in 2022 will be the historical understanding and future possibilities for the more cooperative, caring, and moral nature of humans, including research and practical manifestations of empathy and moral sensitivity.

In his book, Darwin’s Lost Theory, Loye wrote about Charles Darwin’s case for moral evolution rather than "survival of the fittest" as the major force behind human evolution. Systems theorist Ervin Laszlo wrote, "...everyone concerned with our understanding of evolution on this planet owes Loye a deep debt of gratitude.”

Cultural transformation theory also owes David Loye deep gratitude for his contributions. David was the husband of Riane Eisler and together they offer us an alternative view of humanity’s past and our possible future.

The submission deadline for the second issue is August 15, 2022, unless alternate arrangements with the Editors have been made.
