The SCTIW Review aligns with the general Mission Statement of the Society for Contemporary Thought and the Islamicate World (SCTIW).
The SCTIW Review (ISSN: 2374-9288) is an open access journal dedicated to publishing peer refereed book reviews. Thematically, we seek reviews of works pertaining to the Islamicate world (whether in Islamic studies, Middle East studies, or other related fields and subfields) analyzed in light of contemporary philosophy, literary or artistic criticism, religion, political theory, cultural studies, and postcolonial studies. We also seek reviews of works in these various fields analyzed vis-à-vis the contemporary Islamicate world and Islamicate thought.Beyond merely informative descriptions of a book’s contents, we seek critical and creative engagements with the works under review. To this end, we encourage reviewers to reinvigorate the genre by conceiving of their essays as a cross between a standard book review and an academic journal article—i.e., a work of their own original thought in dialogue with the work in question, drawing upon all of the relevant resources at their disposal.
