The Journal of Hate Studies is an international scholarly journal promoting intellectual engagement with processes that embolden the expression of hate. The goal is to establish a deep repository of theory and research on which to ground practical anti-hate interventions. For example, past articles in the journal have:

  1. Examined hate in any one or more of its manifestations (e.g. racism, misogyny, antisemitism, homophobia, religious intolerance, ethnoviolence, anti-immigrant animus, etc.).
  2. Considered how hate is institutionalized, maintained, or perpetrated through culture, organizations, policies, politics, media, discourses, epistemologies, etc.
  3. Developed, adapted, or refined disciplinary specific or trans-disciplinary research methods for understanding and/or effectively addressing hate. 

The Journal reflects the optimism that understanding hate can lead to its containment, allowing humans to flourish without fear of reprisal. 

For the Volume 17 Issue, we will accept both general submissions on any topic within the field as well as contributions destined for a subsection featuring conversations on hate taking place during the COVID-19 pandemic. General submissions range between 6,000-8,000 words. Forum submissions are shorter, ranging between 3,000-5,000 words. Potential topics covered by the “pandemania” forum can include, but should not be limited to, the following COVID-19 focused topics:

  • Racism and anti-racism
  • Xenophobia
  • Protests
  • Policing
  • Masks and social distancing
  • Institutional violence
  • Digital manifestations of hate 

Submission deadline for full manuscripts is December 30, 2020. Notification of acceptance expected April 30 for publication in early fall 2021.

Vision

The Journal of Hate Studies is an international scholarly journal promoting the sharing of interdisciplinary ideas and research relating to the study of what hate is, where it comes from, and how to combat it. It presents cutting-edge essays, theory, and research that deepen the understanding of the development and expression of hate. The Journal aims to provide a deeper understanding of the processes that encourage the expression of hate so that methods of challenging and stopping its expression may be based on theory and research. The Journal reflects the optimism that as hate is understood, it can be contained and controlled allowing for persons to reach their full human potential without fear of retribution.

Writing and Content

The Journal seeks articles written with precision and depth, and that are compelling for a wide audience. Articles accepted for publication are citation-based (7th Edition APA style), with high quality underlying philosophical and psychological development of thought. A primary criterion for acceptance is the level to which the article enriches, extends, and advances the study and understanding of hate in its multiplicity of forms.
