KaosQ+ Project was launched to contribute to a relatively new academic field in Turkey. This journal aims to engage in the leap of queer concept over time within theoretical and practical areas both at home and abroad, and the micro politics in relation to this field which may emerge in the future as well. In this respect, KaosQ+ is to seek to examine the theorization itself by moving queer theory beyond being just an identity politics particular to LGBTIs. Focusing on the relation or contradiction points of the social and cultural theories discussing/ criticizing power, marginality, privilege and normativity with queer theory is one of the main aims of the journal. Therefore, the context of the journal can intersect with critical race and identity theories, anthropology, Marxism, Anarchism, feminist theory, masculinity studies, disability studies, current art theories, and any other philosophical and political text falling within the scope of this concept. The long-term purpose of the journal is to create a ground where this area itself can be problematize as both a philosophical analysis method and a social theory area, and where new solutions and new forms of questioning can be produced, but to create a static discussion ground of queer. Any kind of academic study intersecting with the questions and problems that can be related to the concept in terms of the scope of the research fields can contribute to the context of the journal. Critical contributions of this theory to socio-political thought and action, and descriptive and concrete discussions on the forms of interference are to be the mutual themes of both the current issue and the further issues.
According to the contextual section of the magazine, you can submit texts in 4 different areas:
