Please circulate widely.



The Journal of Social Transformation (JST) is a new, peer-reviewed
interdisciplinary journal published twice a year by the School of
Social Sciences of the Ateneo de Manila University. JST seeks articles
that examine current and emerging political, cultural, and economic
formations, particularly those that involve postcolonial and Asian
contexts. Grounded in a concern for justice, broadly conceived, JST is
committed to publishing work that addresses the production of new
inequalities, forms of violence, and modes of struggle and resistance.
We are especially interested in research that investigates
transformations brought on by new technologies, media forms and
institutional arrangements; contemporary migrations and mobilities;
local and global geographies; alternative conceptions of the body and
the environment; and class, racial, gender, and sexual orders. JST
welcomes both theoretical and empirical contributions from all fields
in the social and cultural sciences.


Submissions: Manuscripts should be sent to the editor, Bobby Benedicto
(rbenedicto at ateneo.edu), as an electronic attachment in Microsoft Word
or Rich Text Format. Articles should not exceed 10,000 words in
length. All lines should be double-spaced. Author names, affiliations,
contact information, and an abstract of 150-200 words should be
provided in a separate title page. References to an author's own works
must be made in a manner that does not compromise anonymity. JST also
accepts photo essays and book reviews. Contact the editor for review
proposals and inquiries.

Style: JST uses the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition. Authors
should prepare manuscripts using endnotes, without a bibliography. The
first citation to a work should be a full citation. Subsequent
citations of the same work should be shortened (last name, short
title, page number).

Deadline: JST accepts submissions on a rolling basis. However, papers
should be submitted by September 15, 2011 in order to be considered
for the second issue.
