Call For Papers

Lamma seeks articles, reviews, and reflection pieces on all subjects related to Libya. We are especially interested in foregrounding approaches and subjects that have previously received less scholarly attention. This includes, but is not limited to: anthropology, art, gender, history, linguistics, literature, music, performance studies, religion, sociology, politics, and urban studies in addition to their intersections, their subfields, and places in between—particularly welcome is work that adopts innovative critical, theoretical, and postcolonial approaches. We accept submissions in English and Arabic primarily, but also other languages (French, Italian, Amazigh languages) where necessary.

Special Issues and Edited Collections

Lamma is also a platform for curated or edited collections, whether arising from conferences and workshops or from other collective endeavors. If you are interested in putting together an edited volume or “special issue” to be published under our imprint, please get in touch.
