Call for Papers



We are currently planning a special issue of the Journal of Italian Philosophy devoted to Giorgio Agamben's relation to Ivan Illich. If you have any contributions you might want to make, or suggestions relating to this and future volumes, do send them to the editor at

Deadlines for us are very flexible, but this particular special issue should ideally be finalised by late Spring of 2024.


More generally:

We invite you to submit articles, translations, reviews, and other material for future general issues of the Journal of Italian Philosophy, as well as proposals for special issues, and suggestions regarding the journal.

We request articles and translations of around eight thousand words or less, on any topic relating to Italian Philosophy, but, since this is an online journal, we see no need strictly to insist upon such limits if the text merits it. Ideally, the text would be referenced in the Harvard style, and formatted according to English, rather than American English, conventions, but conformity with this is not necessary in the first instance.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed, and we hope to provide authors with a response within a month, in ideal circumstances, but please be patient if you write at a busy time of the year.

All submissions should be sent to





Address for Submissions:

Journal of Italian Philosophy, Department of Philosophy, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, NE1 7RU, United Kingdom
