CFP: Special Issue on “Resistance”


Co-Editors: Tola Olu Pearce and Richard M. Hessler, University of Missouri

Resistance challenges the power of some to impose their will upon others. This is a call for papers on the topic for a special issue of the International Journal of Conflict and Reconciliation (IJCR). The journal is sponsored by the Peace Studies Program of the University of Missouri, Columbia, under the auspices of the College of Arts and Science.  Papers on any aspect of the topic are welcome, as resistance is ubiquitous and exists at all levels of society including the household, community, national and international levels. It occurs at the state level and among non-state actors. It exists among the powerful and less powerful alike, is exhibited by those who attempt to hinder change and as well as by those seeking change. Of particular interest are articles that advance theoretical discourses on resistance, as well as in research-based material. A focus on gender, age, race, sexuality, and disabilities would be appreciated, but article contents need not be limited to these.  IJCR is a peer reviewed interdisciplinary online journal. The ISSN is 2157-0620. Manuscript guidelines can be located at the website:  The issue is slated for publication in the fall of 2018. Deadline for paper submission is March 31st 2018.  Send papers to Tola Olu Pearce at
