Special Issue of Culture Machine
Machine Intelligences in Context: Beyond the Technological Sublime
Edited by Peter Jakobsson, Anne Kaun & Fredrik Stiernstedt

Call for chapters. Actor-Network Theory: Concepts, methods and applications

Deadline: March 30, 2019.

Convocatoria en español

REVISTA PSICOLOGÍA, CONOCIMIENTO Y SOCIEDAD

La sección monográfica se propone la puesta en conocimiento de investigaciones y revisiones teóricas relativas a los modos de producción de sujeto, subjetividad y “lo humano”, considerando lo que se ha denominado como “prácticas psi”. Esta denominación (y no la de prácticas psicológicas) participa en un ámbito fronterizo entre diversas disciplinas, saberes y campos de conocimiento que abordan los modos en que se elabora la subjetividad. En tal sentido, a modo de ejemplo, pueden ser considerados como ejes de interés: conocimientos y prácticas en neurociencias, psiquiatría, psicofármacos, administración, rehabilitación, auto-ayuda, coaching, entre otros. Será pertinente el envío de manuscritos inéditos en idioma español, portugués y/o inglés que describan: Continue reading
