Call for Papers: Special Issue on “Ethnographic and Life Story Methods in Human Rights Research”

Lacey Caporale, Guest Editor

The editors of Societies Without Borders: Human Rights and the Social Sciences (SWB) - a double-blind, peer-reviewed, open-source electronic journal devoted to making human rights scholarship accessible to a global audience - invite authors to submit manuscripts for a special issue on “Ethnographic and Life Story Methods in Human Rights Research.”

Studying human rights through ethnographic and life story methods provides a unique and valuable approach to understanding the realities of human rights violations and global injustice. The focus of this special issue will allow for marginalized narratives to be heard and recognized by a global audience. Particularly, ethnographic and life story methods provide the opportunity for diverse voices to impact human rights literature, while at the same time providing human rights scholars the opportunity to learn directly from those experiencing injustice and marginalization. In this special issue we invite submissions that examine human rights using these qualitative methods. This topic will also allow Societies Without Borders to utilize its strengths as a space for research from within the academy or by practitioners in the field.

This special issue seeks papers, commentaries, notes from the field, as well as poetic, visual, and other expressions devoted to examining human rights with ethnographic or life story methods. This special issue will be released in April of 2019.

Any and all inquiries into human rights using ethnographic or life story methods in the social sciences are welcome. Some topics for consideration include but are not limited to:

Ethnographic and life story approaches to human rights scholarship: o Children’s rights o Migration o LGBT rights o Housing rights o Women’s rights, reproductive rights o Violence o Health o International justice o Free speech o Disability rights • Methodological considerations in human rights scholarship

The deadline for submission is October 1, 2018. Inquiries may be sent to Lacey Caporale at

Please submit manuscripts through the SWB Website and follow the SWB Submission Guidelines.

Submissions will be subject to the regular review process of SWB
