Aims & Scope

The purpose of the Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology (IPJP) is to provide a forum for the publication of research in the Continental tradition, broadly construed. Whilst phenomenology remains a central concern of this journal, we also welcome contributions from researchers working in related areas of the Continental tradition, such as existentialism, hermeneutics, feminism, structuralism, post-structuralism, critical theory, deconstruction and psychoanalytic theory. 

This journal also publishes comparative analyses of philosophy in the Continental tradition with the philosophical traditions of other cultures, particularly those of the Indo-Pacific region. It welcomes papers on the appropriation of Continental thought by other global philosophical traditions or the appropriation of extra-European thought by the Continental tradition. It is also keen to receive papers that examine approaches from other global philosophical traditions to topics or themes of typical concern to Continental philosophy. 

We welcome submissions from scholars situated all over the globe, but give preference to papers which either originate in the Southern Hemisphere or which address theorising in the Continental tradition as practised and developed in the Southern Hemisphere.
