Call For Contributions – International Journal of Baudrillard Studies: Special Issue dedicated to Founding Editor Gerry Coulter (1959–2016)

Gerry Coulter

Obituary for Gerry Coulter (1959–2016)

The late Gerry Coulter contributed significantly to the field of Baudrillard Studies. Over more than a decade Gerry published three books and numerous articles about Baudrillard’s philosophy and oeuvre. Gerry also founded and edited the International Journal of Baudrillard Studies in 2004, overseeing the publication of some 29 issues.

The intention of the editorial board is to publish a special issue in 2017 that is dedicated to celebrating Gerry’s contribution and legacy for Baudrillard Studies.

For this special issue we welcome any contribution that touches upon Gerry’s contribution and legacy in Baudrillard Studies, from journal papers to book reviews. We also welcome any ‘Remembrances’ about Gerry from the academy or elsewhere.

Please direct any enquiries concerning potential contributions to the special issue to Richard G. Smith.

Please send submissions for the special issue to Richard G. Smith before 28th April 2017.

Please contact Richard G. Smith ahead of the submission date if you are intending to contribute to the ‘Remembering Gerry Coulter’ special issue.

Please note that the publication of Volume 14, Number 1 regular issue of IJBS, initially scheduled for January 2017 will now be delayed. If your contribution has already been accepted for publication in that issue please rest assured that the Journal’s editorial Assistant (Mary Ellen Donnan) will oversee completion and publication of that issue when she returns from medical leave this winter. Any enquiries about Volume 14(1) may be made directly to her at
