like it might be of interest to many of you.

Special Issue of

*Contemporary Social Science*

*Political activism across the life-course.*

Papers are invited that explore how citizens participate in society. What
leads them to participate, and what are the consequences of their
participation? These are important policy and practice relevant questions
about political activism, defined as responding to matters of common
concern. Many social science disciplines have explored these issues
including social psychologists, political scientists, sociologists and
social anthropologists.  Central to these explorations is the question of
how contemporary politics mark lives and how lives mark contemporary
politics. This covers a range of concerns from health to education,
environment to poverty, migration to domestic violence, gender identities
to political conflict. *In particular, we welcome studies that examine
political activism across the life-course*.

A range of research methods are welcomed that include action research,
biographical interviews, case study and ethnographic research, surveys and
visual methods approaches. Well-reasoned, empirically based essays are also

Manuscripts should follow the usual instructions for electronic submission
of papers to Contemporary Social Science. Authors should indicate that they
wish the manuscript to be reviewed for inclusion in the special issue. The
Editors of this issue would be happy to review plans for papers in advance
of their receipt. All papers will be peer reviewed.

The closing date for submitting papers is 31st October 2016.
