Social, Political, Ethical, and Cultural Theory Archives (SPECTRA) is a student-led online scholarly journal established as part of the ASPECT (Alliance for Social, Political, Ethical, and Cultural Thought) program at Virginia Tech. The journal features work of an interdisciplinary nature and is designed to provide an academic forum for students to showcase research, explore controversial topics, and take intellectual risks. SPECTRA welcomes submissions for publication by way of scholarly refereed articles, book reviews, essays, interviews and other works that operate within a problem-centered, theory-driven framework.
Please note that SPECTRA will be moving its servers between November and December 2014. While we will try to ensure continuous availability under spectrajournal.org, there may be some disruptions. Please bookmark our site under spectravt.wordpress.com, as the site will continue to be available under this address, and stay tuned for the launch of SPECTRA’s new platform with Issue 4.1.
The Call for Submissions for Issue 4.1 is now available. Full Submissions are due on November 3, 2014. If you intend to publish with us, please send us an initial abstract by October 1, 2014.
For all inquiries, please feel free to contact the Editor.
