Studies in Social Justice has a new home!
Since 2007 Studies in Social Justice has been managed and published by the Centre for Studies in Social Justice at the University of Windsor. Following the Centre’s recent closure, the journal’s operations have been relocated to the Social Justice Research Institute (SJRI) at Brock University.
Studies in Social Justice publishes articles on issues dealing with the social, cultural, economic, political, and philosophical problems associated with the struggle for social justice. This interdisciplinary journal aims to publish work that links theory to social change and the analysis of substantive issues. The journal welcomes heterodox contributions that are critical of established paradigms of inquiry.
The editorial policies of Studies in Social Justice remain unchanged, as does its core mandate. Changes to the journal’s management and editorial team are noted on the About the Journal page.
Proposals for special issues, and submission of research articles and review essays, are encouraged. Please consult the Submission page for details.
Heartfelt appreciation to the team at the Centre for Studies in Social Justice at University of Windsor for sound management and careful stewardship of Studies in Social Justice through its first eight volumes.
Studies in Social Justice also has a new managing editor!
SJRI co-founder and Faculty Steering Committee Member, David Butz, is very excited at the challenging prospect of co-editing and managing Studies in Social Justice. He believes SSJ is solidly established and well-positioned to further increase its readership, visibility and influence. Dr. Butz was for three years Director of Brock’s interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Social Justice and Equity Studies; since 2005 has been an editor of ACME: An International E-Journal for Critical Geographies, also an open-access, on-line, peer-reviewed journal; and has served on the editorial boards of three other journals.
His research deals mainly with modernization, social transformation, and political ecology in mountainous northern Pakistan, with a recent emphasis on road building and mobility justice. He has also done work on the restructuring of the automobile industry in southern Ontario, spatiality in Jamaican reggae music, epistemological and methodological aspects of autoethnography, autobiography and autophotograpy, and the limitations of liberal understandings of research ethics.
