Call for Submissions!

e-Epanastasi is seeking submissions for Plethon, a demo issue of a printed Pan-Hellenic journal we hope to regularly produce in the near future. The journal is named in honor of Georgios “Plethon” Gemistos, a 15th century Greek scholar of Neoplatonic philosophy. It is thanks to Plethon that Plato’s teachings were re-introduced to Western Europe. Submissions open January 19 and close March 1st, 2016.

Potential submissions should fall within one the following subject categories: Anti-Hellenism (racial, ethnic or religious discrimination of Greeks), Hellenic Advocacy (Issues & Strategies), Hellenismos (theology & practice), or Forgotten Hellenes (often over looked ethnic Greek communities). Suggestions for possible submissions include, but are not limited to: op-eds, position/policy papers, interviews, or articles

All works must be original. Scholarly papers or articles must provide proper citation for all sources in the form of a bibliography and in text citations. Upon acceptance, the author will be asked to complete a permission to publish form, and include a brief author biography to be included in the issue.
