Genocide Studies and Prevention: An International Journal, the official publication of the International Association of Genocide Scholars, is publishing a special issue on Humanitarian Technologies and Genocide Prevention. We would like to invite you and your colleagues to contribute to this issue, either through submitting manuscripts or as peer reviewers.
The issue will focus on the latest developments in mapping, citizen-based monitoring, crisis mapping, crowdsourcing, e-humanities, and related fields, and their potential use in preventing genocide or dealing with the aftermath of genocide. We are especially interested in articles that critically examine both the potential benefits and drawbacks of these technologies (broadly defined). Specific details are listed in the call for papers.
The call for papers is open to scholars and practitioners working across the disciplines, with interests in genocide or a wide range of humanitarian and human rights issues related to genocide, including the early stages of genocidal processes and the aftermaths of genocide.
The call for papers and call for peer reviewers can be found at http://scholarcommons.usf.edu/gsp/. Manuscripts are due in the first week of June; the issue will be published in the autumn of 2014.
Please feel free to distribute this call for paper and call for reviewers to your colleagues and graduate students.
