- analyzing contemporary social, ethical, political, cultural, juridical, economic, technological, communication, and media phenomena and transformations from historical-genealogical and/or critical theory perspectives;
- cross-fertilizing critical genealogy and critical theory;
- exploring the critical potentials of genealogical methods;
- fostering dialogue between various schools of critical inquiry such as Marxism, the Frankfurt School, phenomenology, poststructuralism, and deconstruction;
- confronting genealogical research and scholarship in critical theory with more current approaches in, for example, cultural and media studies, digital humanities, science and technology studies, as well as postcolonial, gender, and race studies.
Before their publication on the G+C Blog, all contributions are reviewed by at least two members of the editorial board. If the authors are part of the editorial team, they are excluded from the review process.
The G+C Blog appreciates the submission of unpublished essays, reviews, commentaries, and interviews as well as event announcements and calls for papers written in English, German, or French. We accept articles up to 15,000 characters (including notes) submitted by e-mail. All manuscripts should be prepared in MS Word format (.docx), left-justified without hyphenation, 1.5 line spacing, 12-point Times New Roman. The use of pictures, illustrations, graphics, audio and video files is welcome, but each item must be checked for copyright permissions and requires detailed captions. We also encourage the authors to employ hyperlinks in their articles. For references and comments please use endnotes, but insert them manually in square brackets (like this ), so do not apply an automated footnote or endnote feature. Always give the complete name, title, place, date, journal volume and issue as well as the page numbers cited for the first references of works; later references should be abbreviated (last name: short title, page).
Authors of articles published in the G+C Blog remain the copyright holders and grant third parties the right to use, reproduce, and share the article according to our Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license (CC BY 4.0). Authored contributions in the G+C Blog are equipped with Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) and indexed by Crossref.
The G+C Blog harks back to the academic weblog foucaultblog, which was founded by a group of humanities scholars at the University of Zurich in spring 2013. This blog soon established itself as a respected research platform, publishing reviewed open-access articles, organizing international workshops and conferences, and editing special issues. In 2015 the peer-reviewed, open-access journal Le foucaldien was launched to professionalize the publication process and make the contributions digitally sustainable. In early 2022 both the journal and the blog relaunched as GENEALOGY+CRITIQUE and G+C Blog in order to broaden the scope by explicitly including various approaches of genealogical research and critical theory formation.
