The second annual Iranian Yearbook of Phenomenology has issued a new call for papers entitled ‘Phenomenology and the Social’ (2021).

The Iranian Society for Phenomenology is intending to publish the second issue of “the Iranian Yearbook of Phenomenology” in Iran, in partnership with Iranian Political Science Association and Gam-e-nou (New Step) Publishing. We invite every interested researcher to contribute to this edited book volume. Authors should submit their final draft (in Persian or English) no later than September 21, 2020 to the Yearbook website (see below).

There will be two peer reviews of each paper submitted to the volume, and these will be double-blind with both the reviewer and author identities concealed. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity.
