Dear Colleagues,

We're happy to share two calls from the Radical Housing Journal (www.radicalhousingjournal.org).

Firstly, we are looking for new members of our Extended Collective, particularly scholar-activists whose work focuses upon Critical Race Studies, Black Geographies, Indigenous Geographies, Decolonial Methods, Postcolonial Studies, and/or housing justice work in the Global South. Extended Collective members are key project members, making primary decisions in the journal's structure and ethos. Collective members are expected to participate in weekly communication through our Asana project management platform. Members are also expected to help lead particular journal issues, which come out twice a year and require 10 months of labor beforehand. We are also looking for Collective members to join particular committees, which include Finance, Social Media/Networking/Website, and Legal/Open Access. We are also looking for people who can help with copyediting.

If you are interested, please compose 3 paragraphs describing more about your work (organizing and scholarship), and your interest in joining us. Also let us know what kind of editorial or journal work you have been part of in the past. Please let us know if there are particular committees that you are interested in joining. It would be great if you could email us at collective@radicalhousingjournal.org by June 17th, 2019. 


Secondly, we're actively looking for submissions for Issues 2.1 & 2.2 // Spring & Autumn 2020. Following the successful launch of Issue 1.1, and preparing for the launch of Issue 1.2, the RHJ is now accepting open submissions for publication in 2020. We publish two issues per year so your contribution will fall in either of those. All contributors need to embrace the Journal ethos, as expressed in our Manifesto. You can either submit a single paper or propose a special issue. All contributors will receive a compensation for their work. The deadline for Issue 2.1 is June 30th, 2019. Read more here:https://radicalhousingjournal.org/2019/open-call-for-papers/.

We are looking forward to hearing back from you.

In solidarity,

The RHJ Collective
