Special Journal Issue dedicated to Laurel Richardson's work
August 27th, 2013
Call for Papers for a Special Issue of Qualitative Inquiry on
“Embodiment and Social Difference: A Tribute to Laurel Richardson”
Renowned sociologist and writer Laurel Richardson experiments with creative interdisciplinary qualitative inquiry, with a sensitivity to the lived experience of embodied social difference. Well known for her work on gender, Richardson’s recent book After a Fall: A Sociomedical Sojourn focuses on issues of disability, aging, and ableism. In the spirit and practice of Laurel Richardson, we invite you to submit essays and research articles on the embodied axes of social difference—disability/ableism, gender/sexism, age/ageism, sexuality/heterosexism, race/racism, and the intersectionalities of these social experiences.Papers, proposals, and queries should be sent to Ronald Berger (University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, email@example.com), Carla Corroto (Radford University, firstname.lastname@example.org), or Julie White (The Victoria Institute, email@example.com). The deadline for the submission of completed manuscripts is February 1, 2014.
Left Coast qualitative journals to U California Press
March 22nd, 2013
It's with very mixed feelings that we can announce that our two qualitative research journals
INTERNATIONAL REVIEW OF QUALITATIVE RESEARCH, journal of the International Congress for Qualitative Inquiry
QUALITATIVE COMMUNICATION RESEARCH
have been moved to the University of California Press as part of Left Coast's decision to divest ourselves of all of our journals. This change takes place with the 2013 publication volume for each journal, volume 6 of IRQR and volume 2 of QCR.
Information on submitting articles, subscribing, claiming missing issues, address changes or any other matter concerning those two journals can be found on the UC Press website . We expect that this will be another qualitative-friendly home for these two wonderful publications.
The remainder of Left Coast's journals were transferred to Maney Publishing at the end of 2012.
That's not to say Left Coast is out of the publications business. We are still producing 40 new titles a year. Look under Books/What's New to see what we have coming up in your area.
Maney Publishing acquires Left Coast Press journals
October 26th, 2012
an innovative partnership, Maney Publishing has acquired the journal publishing
division of Left Coast Press, Inc. (LCP). Maney and LCP
will enjoy a marketing partnership to promote the LCP books to Maney’s
worldwide audience for journals, while LCP markets the journals within its book
program, thus allowing both publishers to reach a wider customer base.
independent publishers have a strong commitment to scholarly publication and
great strengths in archaeology, heritage and museology, which will be furthered
by this new partnership. The LCP journals will benefit from Maney’s global
marketing and publishing technologies, and bring the total number of journals
in its archaeology and heritage collection to over thirty.
acquisition and partnership exemplify Maney’s recent growth in North America
marked by the recent opening of its Philadelphia office. For LCP, this deal
represents the chance to focus more firmly on the publication of its dynamic
and highly respected booklist.
Allen, President of Left Coast, is excited by the new partnership: “The
publication of journals has evolved in a way that favors larger publishers with
elaborate systems for sales, search, and electronic delivery. I’m delighted
that we have found a compatible partner, one who specializes in our areas of
strength, to provide these kinds of services for our journals. I look forward
to working with Maney on cooperatively marketing our compatible lists of
publications to audiences worldwide.”
Gallico, Maney’s CEO, is delighted with the outcome: “I have been in discussion with Mitchell Allen for many months
whilst we developed a strong understanding of each other’s ethos and the
prospects for the LCP journals. I am
grateful for the appreciation and understanding that Mitch has given to these
plans and believe that we can carry forward this outstanding list of journals
that LCP has so carefully developed. We look forward to working with a new
high-profile list of American clients in what we see as one of our most
exciting developments ever.”
