Aigne Journal

About the Journal

Aigne (‘Mind’) is a peer-reviewed online postgraduate journal and falls under the auspices of the Graduate School of the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences at University College Cork. Aigne was founded in 2010 by postgraduate students of the College and regularly invites submissions from both UCC students and postgraduates internationally.

In keeping with the ethos of the College, Aigne encourages submissions that adopt an interdisciplinary perspective. The journal uses a double-blind peer-review process to ensure anonymity and quality of submissions.

The journal publishes two distinct issues a year. The first issue is an annual release, which works in collaboration with the Graduate School’s postgraduate conference. All papers presented at the conference are invited to submit for peer review and the opportunity for publication. The second issue is theme-based and open to postgraduates worldwide.

Aigne invites submissions in both the Irish and the English language. We are further looking for enthusiastic postgraduates who would like to get involved in the workings of the journal. If you are interested in becoming an editor, reviewer or proofreader for Aigne, please do not hesitate to contact us at aigne@ucc.ie.

CfP: Liminality -Transitions and Marginalities

2021-05-23

The term liminality encapsulates a state of transition wherein new ideas, identities, solidarities can come into being. As a concept it thus offers a crucial prism through which any in-between phase for a person, group, or even for a whole society can be better understood and has today gained increasing use within the humanities, social sciences and beyond.   

In the current day and age, liminal spaces permeate the essence of uncertainties and marginalities.  This space can be occupied by those in stasis, which represents detachment and departure from expectations borne of stability towards the marginal spaces of uncertainty, fluidity, and the suspended potentiality of the unknown.  

Thus, we call for papers based on the theme of liminal spaces, marginality, transitions and departures.

Crisis is a concept which often has strong negative connotations, particularly in a world experiencing a series of economic, political, and social crises within various contexts, territories, and vocations. While crisis and predicament seem to have an intuitive connection, crisis is also a catalyst for invention and innovation: for potential. Crisis encourages us to experiment with both reshaped and unprecedented paradigms, even in uncertain or turbulent scenarios which could appear transgressive at the time presented. It is important to value and understand, in the context of new emerging mind-sets, the potential of these transformations and the impact they could have for the world we live in.  

The aim of this issue is to showcase a series of articles which engage with the theme of “Crisis: Predicament and Potential” in challenging and diverse ways.
