Please find below a call for papers for the ‘Affect’ journal.

--------------------------------------

Issue 1 - Political Speeches

Affect Journal is a new project created by graduates of the School of 
Geography, University of Oxford as an attempt to open up critical academic 
discourses to a wider audience through greater accessibility of writing. 
The journal has a wide scope, and encourages debate and analysis across 
the social sciences, although its main emphasis is on geographical and 
political discourse.

This call for papers is for our first issue to be published in Winter 
2008/9. The theme of the first issue is Political Speeches, and the 
editorial team is encouraging a range of critical perspectives on this 
form of political performance.

Oratory and rhetoric has always been a key feature of conventional 
politics, constituting a vital element in constructing political support 
and interest. Such techniques appeal to both affective and intellectual 
registers and can be seen as powerful examples of political performance 
that not only reflect the politics of their era, but also act to shape 
them. Barack Obama's recent 'race speech' on March 18, 2008, for example, 
has come to be seen as key moment in the nomination for the Democrat 
presidential candidate in addition to potentially having a significant 
impact on future race relations within and outside of the US.

The editors invite contributors to submit a diverse range of 
interpretations of this speech as a means by which to enter into a wider 
consideration of the performativity and potential impacts of political 
speeches from around the world.

Possible areas of analysis might include:

- Close analysis or comparison of particular speeches, either in the 20th
century or more recently
- The rhetoric of the Bush Administration and the performance of the 'War on Terror'
- Political speeches in non-western states. To what extent is rhetoric a
'western' concept?
- Performativity and persuasion in speeches
- How do political speeches mobilise and utilise affect?
- Political speeches as hybrid performances, cofabricated by audience, orator
and occasion
- Political speeches are the single great constant of political history, but how
has oratory changed over time, and how does the advent of new media and
communications technologies affect this political conduit?

For more specific information regarding the kinds of articles Affect 
Journal is seeking, please visit this page on our website:
