Marcel Studies

Submission Guidelines

The editors of Marcel Studies welcome submissions that contribute to a greater understanding of Gabriel Marcel’s work. We are not only interested in scholarship that exclusively focuses on Marcel’s thought and his contribution to the greater philosophical project, but also welcome articles that explore how Marcel’s ideas contribute to fields such as psychology, theology, anthropology, literature and the arts, politics, and economics. We are also interested in articles that place Marcel in dialogue with specific figures from these traditions, both past and present. The journal also publishes book reviews, translations, and other material of interest to Marcel scholars.
