New Journal Announcement and Call for Articles

ReOrient The Journal of Critical Muslim Studies

ReOrient is an international peer reviewed interdisciplinary journal of Critical Muslim Studies published by Pluto Journals.
The journal is a sustained collective thought experiment that seeks to explore the consequences of producing knowledge that is no longer organized around the axis of West and non-West.

ReOrient is dedicated to rethinking those entities and events considered to lie outside the conceptuality of Western hegemony, culturally, geopolitically and philosophically. The journal encourages a decolonial and non-orientalist approach to the analysis of the historical and contemporary political, socio-economic, and cultural processes constitutive of the Islamicate in its widest-ranging permutations. . It welcomes original submissions from the humanities and social sciences that engage with the development of critical Muslim studies and related topics. Contents will typically include contributions from the fields and related subfields of Political Science, Cultural Studies, History, Critical Theory, International Relations, Sociology, Art and Literature, Anthropology and Islamic Studies.

ReOrient will publish original articles in English of between 6000 and 8000 words (including bibliography). Submissions must not have been published or be under consideration elsewhere. All articles are submitted to blind peer reviewing by at least two referees. Final decisions on publication remain with the Editorial Board.

Articles should be submitted electronically as a Word file, and emailed to:
