Call For Papers - Budhi: A Journal of Ideas and Culture

Budhi: A Journal of Ideas and Culture invites you to submit previously unpublished papers for consideration in its upcoming issues.

Budhi is an interdisciplinary journal of philosophy that seeks to encourage creative and critical contemporary interpretations and appropriations of the history of ideas as well as theoretical constructions addressing contemporary culture and society. The journal is devoted to the practice of philosophy in its interdisciplinary engagements with art, culture, history, religion, technology, and the social sciences. It seeks to provide an arena for exchanges between mainstream traditions and work from the geopolitical margins, particularly from the local history and culture of the Philippines. Budhi therefore crosses geographical borders as well as intellectual boundaries within philosophy and within the
humanities and the social sciences.

Manuscript Preparation

Articles should be about 6,000 to 10,000 words long, including notes and references. The manuscript should include an abstract of no more than 200 words.

Manuscripts should be submitted as MS Word files in .doc format, double-spaced. Citations should follow the notes and bibliography system (not the author-date system) of The Chicago Manual of Style.

Manuscripts should be prepared for blind review. The article itself should contain no reference to the author’s identity. In a separate file, please submit an author sheet with the following information: title of submission, name of author, affiliation, contact information, e-mail address, abstract (no longer than 200 words), and five key words.

Please send submissions and inquiries to the following e-mail address:

We ask that you refrain from submitting your essay to other publications while it is undergoing review by Budhi.

Call for Papers: Panawagan para sa mga papel para sa isyung Panítik ng Polítik

ANG PANÍTIK NG POLÍTIK: Mga Pampanitikang Dulog sa Kalagayang Pampolitika ng Bansa
Alvin B. Yapan, PhD, Patnugot
Christian Jil R. Benitez, Katuwang na Patnugo

Hindi na natuto ang mga Pilipino. Madaling makalimot. Walang pagkilala sa kasaysayan. Ibinebenta ng mga Pilipino ang kinabukasan ng bansa sa pagtalikod sa mga prinsipyo ng demokrasya. Sa ganito nang balangkas parating sinisipat ang kalagayang pampolitika sa bansa. Nais maghain ngayon ng Katipunan, dyornal ng Kagawaran ng Filipino, Pamantasang Ateneo de Manila, ng alternatibong pampanitikang pagbasa sa politika sa bansa na hindi sumasalalay sa nakagawian at palasak nang sosyo-politikal na pagtatasa. Ano kaya ang matutuklasan natin kung babasahin ang kalakarang pampolitika sa bansa sa konteksto ng espektakulo at dula, ng karnabal at pista? Anong diskurso kaya ang mabubuksan ng mga akdang pampanitikan sa bansa na hayagang tumuturol sa mga usaping pampolitika, mula Ang Tunay na Dekalogo ni Apolinario Mabini, Banaag at Sikat ni Lope K. Santos, Pagkamulat ni Magdalena nina Alejandro Abadilla at Elpidio Kapulong, Mga Agos sa Disyerto, at Sigwa, kung babasahin hindi sa lente ng tunggalian ng mga uri at ideolohiya, ng global at lokal na politika, ng nasyonal at transnasyonal na diskurso? Hindi tatanggap ang isyu ng mga pag-aaral na gumagamit ng metodolohiya na pawang galing sa larang ng agham pampolitika at agham panlipunan. Sa halip iminumungkahi ang: 1) paglapat ng metodolohiyang pampanitikan, kasama na dito ang pilolohiko at iba pang metodolohiya ng pag-aaral sa wika, sa pag-unawa sa sitwasyong pampolitika sa kapuluan, 2) pagbasa sa mga akdang pampanitikang Filipino bilang mga tratadong pampolitika, 3) pagbasa sa katutubong pananaw-sa-mundo bilang politikal na kosmolohiya, at 4) iba pang mga katulad na takbo at liko ng pag-aaral. 

Tatanggap din ang dyornal ng mga akdang pampanitikan na sumisipat sa kasalukuyang kalagayang pampolitika ng bansa. 

Matatagpuan ang mga alituntunin sa pagpasa ng papel dito. Ipasa ang papel nang sumusunod sa
gabay sa estilo ng MLA, sa paggamit ng nakapanaklong na sanggunian at talasanggunian.

Bukas ang pagtanggap ng papel hanggang sa ika-28 ng Setyembre 2019. 

Maaaring ipadala ang mga ipapasang papel sa bilang Word file.

Call For Papers: Landas: Journal of Loyola School of Theology

Landas: Journal of Loyola School of Theology is a peer-reviewed journal published twice a year by the Loyola School of Theology since 1987. The journal stimulates reflection, facilitates theological research and tackles contemporary concerns for greater understanding and life-enrichment.

“Landas” is the Filipino word for “way,” a Biblical term of venerable standing. This is not the first time that a theological journal has chosen to call itself by this name. The editors of Landas were attracted to this title largely by its capacity to express the notion of faith as pilgrimage, faith as lifestyle, and faith as authentic orientation. The decade leading to its inaugural issue in January 1987 saw a notable growth of interest in the realities and developments of what had been called the Third World. From the perspective of religion and mission, the significant, if not remarkable multiplication of Christian membership in such areas of the globe had important
repercussions both on Christian dynamics and ecumenical affairs. The phenomenon of Basic Ecclesial Communities and the rise of liberation theology in Latin America served to intensify the focusing of attention on developing nations.

For the Philippines, the historical events of February 1986 which saw the toppling of a 20-year-old dictatorship through a peaceful, non-violent revolution attracted world-wide interest, which gave rise to various questions. What are the people of South and East Asia thinking? What are they saying? What are they writing? When these questions were directed to matters theological, there was a seeming lack of printed sources from which to draw the answers. In the Third World situation, after all, demands of involvement rendered leisure for scholarship a rare commodity.

Thus was born the theological journal Landas, with hopes to make a modest contribution toward responding to the need for published material on scriptural, ecclesiological, and spiritual topics, written by authors living and working in the Philippines. From its founding editor Antonio B. Lambino, S.J. Landas trekked its own path, with stewardship subsequently transferring to Pedro C. Sevilla, S.J., Pedro S. de Achutegui, S.J., Daniel Patrick Huang, S.J., James H. Kroeger, M.M., Miguel B. Lambino, S.J., Antonio Francisco B. de Castro, S.J. and Jose Mario C. Francisco, S.J. Now on its 25th year, Landas looks back at a fruitful and relevant publication history, and is set to respond to contemporary audiences amid the challenges of today’s digital world.

For submissions, write to Fr. Felipe Fruto Ramirez, S.J.
The Landas postal address is: Loyola School of Theology, P.O. Box 240, U.P., 1144 Quezon City, Philippines.

Call For Papers: Social Transformations: Journal of the Global South

Social Transformations is an outlet for critical but engaged knowledge about social justice, collective well being, and sustainable development within and across the Global South, a region we take to refer to societies in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Pacific that are economically, politically, and culturally marginalized. Such studies trace interrelations and solidarities between and among peoples, states, and movements, while acknowledging tensions and contradictions within the South, as well as the legacies, manifestations, and trajectories of the North’s dominance. We support work that analyzes and enables positive change emerging from social movements, development paradigms, policies, and community and grassroots-based interventions. We publish interdisciplinary
empirical and conceptual contributions from the different social and human sciences. We also encourage writing that is accessible to specialists and nonspecialists, avoiding both excessive theoretical abstraction and unreflexive empiricism. The Journal aims to publish twice a year.

For submissions, email abstracts to All submissions will be refereed.
