After a two year online-only period, the biannual journal Global Humanities (ISSN: 2199-3939) eventually found a new home at Edizioni Museo Pasqualino, the publishing house of the Museo Internazionale delle marionette Antonio Pasqualino, Italy. It will continue to be published in print and open access for back issues. 

The journal continues its attempt to strengthen interdisciplinary research in all fields of the humanities in relation to its topical issues. For the spring 2021, volume 9 is planned to deal with the interrelationship of Religion and Politics. We therefore ask scholars at any step of their academic career to submit paper proposals for this issue that could deal with, but are not limited to, the following topics:


Religious motivation for political action

Political abuse of religion

Religious radicalism in politics

The semiotics of religiously motivated politics

Semiotics, religion, and politics

Political attitudes towards religion


With regard to time period and theoretical approach, this call for papers is totally open.

Please send your paper propoals (max. 300 words and a short biographical note) to Frank Jacob ( and Francesco Mangiapane ( by June 20, 2020. Papers are due by September 30, 2020 and should have a lenght of 6,000-8,000 words. Style sheets will be provided together with a decision about the proposals by June 30.
