Call For Papers:

As an interdisciplinary forum for the publication of postgraduate research in the arts and social sciences, Quest is now seeking submissions for its fourth edition, to be published in Autumn 2008.  The theme for this edition will be:

'The City'

We invite proposals for papers from all subjects in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, at both Masters and Doctoral level, which interpret the theme as widely as possible.  The following list, which is neither prescriptive nor exhaustive, may serve as inspiration:

  • Ghettos and Suburbs
  • Urban Life
  • Living, Working and Commuting
  • Sex and the City
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Congestion
  • Cultural Interactions and Institutions
  • Growth and Change
  • The Megatropolis

Papers (both abstract and full text) should be no longer than 5000 words. Shorter articles are encouraged. Longer articles may be accepted in special circumstances. All proposals should be sent to quest@qub.ac.uk by Monday the 28th of July 2008.  Potential contributors should refer to our Submission Guidelines here.
